JM: What clothes could you have brought in to wear in the jail (underwear, socks, etc.)? Cody: Just a blue cotton jumpsuit that says Winnebago
County Jail on the back. They also issue you
underwear. You have to buy socks from
commissary. Only the trustees and the people who
work in the pods get shoes. Everyone else gets
sandals. Nicole: You could not bring in any clothes in the jail.
They gave you disposable underwear, and if you had
a white sports bra, they usually let you keep that
and you could keep socks.
JM: If you had a set uniform, what did it look like? Please be specific about each piece of clothing issued to you. Cody: See above Nicole: The uniforms depended on the seriousness of your
case. General uniforms were green scrub type
looking and they said the facility name on the
back of them.
JM: Were there any assigned clothes in high demand that an inmate should look for when getting clothing assigned? Cody: No. Nicole: There was assigned clothing to people on maximum
hold or high security, instead of wearing green
they would wear yellow or orange.
JM: Was the clothing different between men and women? Cody: No, its the same. Nicole: Men and women all wore the same thing.
