Interview with Helen and Leon

JM: How many different blocks were there?
Helen: There were a lot of different ones but I'm not sure how many exactly. I was only there for four days.
Leon: There is a separate Intake for males and females. Other than that there are 8 blocks.

JM: Did they have names? If so, what were they?
Helen: I am only aware of one block for women and I don't remember what the names were.
Leon: There was A-G, and a trustee block.

JM: Which types of inmates were housed in the different blocks?
Helen: I don't know. I was placed in a section with all women with different types of convictions. I think that there was only one block for women because I only saw one.
Leon: C block was for females, G (Gym block, a converted indoor rec yard) was for minor offences. There was one for PC, sex offenders, prison inmates waiting to be transferred, violent crimes and a couple more.

JM: What do you remember being the nicest and worst parts about the different blocks?
Helen: I was only placed on one block and in one cell so I'm not familiar with other blocks. My block had all females and they had all different types of convictions. I think that they was only one block for females but I'm not completely sure. I didn't see any more than that and no one ever mentioned having more than that.
Leon: I was in the Gym where there are no cells. There are about 43 bunks, and there is really no way to be alone unless you're in the bathroom or the shower. We all kind of wished we had cells so we didn't have to listen to each other fart all night. They never turn the lights out, either. You have to wrap your socks or a shirt around your head at night to sleep.
