Interview with Helen and Leon

JM: What clothes could you have brought in to wear in the jail (underwear, socks, etc.)?
Helen: No there wasn't They had a uniform that everybody had to wear. If I wanted anything different, I had to order it through commissary..
Leon: You can't bring your own clothes, but they provide decent clothing. You could order shoes straight from a manufacturer.

JM: If you had a set uniform, what did it look like? Please be specific about each piece of clothing issued to you.
Helen: The uniforms for Warren County Corrections was an orange jumpsuit. The only other clothing I seen were sweats and tee shirt that were ordered through commissary.
Leon: The jump suits are color coded for each tier. Orange for A, yellow for B, tan for C, gray for D, green for Intake, blue for Gym, and I don't remember the rest. You get one jumpsuit which gets changed weekly, a sweatsuit, socks, t shirts, a pair of shorts and a towel and washcloth.

JM: Were there any assigned clothes in high demand that an inmate should look for when getting clothing assigned?
Helen: There weren't any assigned clothing in high demand. Just the uniforms.
Leon: Everyone gets the same thing.

JM: Was the clothing different between men and women?
Helen: I don't know. I didn't see men at all other than when I was leaving.
Leon: Only the color of the jumpsuit. Women were in C block so they got the tan.
