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 :)
