Closing Advice

Interview with Freya, Jen and Cathy

JM: What else would you want a friend or family member to know if they have a loved one going to this jail?
Freya: Try to get a copy of the Inmate Handbook and read it, then make your own happiness. The staff were generally pretty nice, some actually helpful.
Jen: The inmate should not wear any jewelry, all jewelery (Except for religous medalions are surrendered during booking, and will sometimes disappear from the storage area. Check the DOC website before mailing anything other than a letter to the inmate (the rules change constantly as to what an inmate can recieve in the mail) 99% of the correction Officers are very fair and friendly, and will treat you with the same respect you show them.
Cathy: I can only speak of Unit J (women's general population). Seriously, except for the boredom, it was like being at camp without being allowed to leave. Easy, easy time.

JM: If somebody knows they will be serving time in this jail what is your advice to them?
Cathy: Don't talk trash about anyone else, keep a low profile, make a couple of friends that you can trust, respect the COs and they will respect you.

JM: Please list any other jail or rehab facilities you have been to.
Cathy: Never been anywhere else and don't plan on being anywhere else in the future :)
