JM: How many different blocks were there? Sparkie: about 20 Craig: Not sure but there's quite a few. Immates are
locked up based on there crime. If your in jail
for DWI your not going to be locked up with
someone who committed murder or rape. You'll be
housed with people who have similar offences. Allison: Unsure. Only 2 for the women.
JM: Did they have names? If so, what were they? Sparkie: all named by letters Craig: They have a letter then a number. For example I
was in A-2. Allison: K-Pod 9(consisted of k1,k2,k3,k4,k5). And 1 dorm
type housing( unsure of the name; I was never housed
JM: Which types of inmates were housed in the different blocks? Sparkie: gangs, minimum security, maximum security, ins,
and lockdown Craig: They house you based on the crime comitted. Allison: There was intake for a day to 3 days while one was
classified. Then we were moved. I was in KPod to
there was:intake, a max unit, a weekend unit, and to
JM: What do you remember being the nicest and worst parts about the different blocks? Sparkie: nicest was being able to go to work, worst was
when the a/c or water was out for days Craig: I only spent time in one block. next to my block
was the A-1 block. The people in there had
similar offences to the people in my block. We
also shared the same outside area they did. We
alternated our time outside with them. We were
never outsde at the same time. Allison: Different units had nicer showers or working
microwaves. Some had better reading options and more
seating in the dayroom. I was never in the 'dorm'
block. I was only kept in the K pod so I cant
comment on that, but many believed that was better
because you could go outside all day long.
