Jen: They were refered to as units, and then letters of the alphabet. I.E. Unit A, or Unit C.
Cathy: Big J and Little J-women's general population. Those were the only two that had nicknames that I know of.

JM: Which types of inmates were housed in the different blocks?
Freya: Don't know about the others--mine was lowest security.

G & H were general population for Men, J was General Population for woman. Unit I is a rehab unit for both men and woman, a.k.a. Theraputic Counseling.
Cathy: A- max security for female inmates. B-max security for male inmates. C, D, E-male inmates with medical issues. F-male inmates that needed to be segregated ffrom general pop. G & H- general pop for men. J-General pop for women. I-rehab unit for men and women in TC (Theraputic Counselling)

JM: What do you remember being the nicest and worst parts about the different blocks?
Freya: The annex was like a dorm that you couldn't leave--room doors were usually not locked, lots of tv, reading and card and board games. Food was ok for institutional food.
Jen: Do you really think there is anything nice about jail?
Cathy: There's nothing "nice" about being in jail! But, I met some nice women and some of the COs were awesome..friendly, helpful and they really cared. Worst parts were the noise, sleeping with the lights on, the poor excuse for a "mattress" (1- inch thick foam mat) and the food..yuck!
