Interview with Katy, Sarah and Laura

JM: How many different blocks were there?
Katy: There were 4 blocks.
Sarah: 4 in the womens area
Laura: There was 2 wings open, they shut down the other side. The men had 3 I think, the women only had 1 block but 4 pods

JM: Did they have names? If so, what were they?
Katy: A- Suicide watch B and C-regular population D-GIP pod (A and D might be reversed)
Sarah: the areas were Female pods A, B, C, and D
Laura: We had A pod, which was the hole, and the other 3 was B pod C pod and Dpod

JM: Which types of inmates were housed in the different blocks?
Katy: See above
Sarah: High risk (due to behaviors such as fighting,suicide, escape) were in A. B were moderate risk, the other two were mixed with no isolation cells. The men had two areas: south was low risk North was any higher risk that was not long term.
Laura: A pod was for people that might be dangerous (never any) mostly it was for people who got in trouble or were openly gay they'd be segregated, B and C pod were typical and D pod seemed to be for the anti social or older people

JM: What do you remember being the nicest and worst parts about the different blocks?
Katy: They all sucked.
Sarah: The nicest part of my initial pod (B) was that I was not forced out of my cell due to being in isolation. I was moved to Pod C as a higher risk inmate needed my cell, so I was placed in a less focused on pod. This was considered better due to being able to "get away" with things. I had an individual cell at all times.
Laura: The hole sucks of course you can't have a bra, underwear, socks, and you can't have any books or paper or NOTHING!, D pod was just boring but less drama, I only spend a week in C pod, but all my friends were in Bpod so when I moved over there, my time flew by, no bad parts about B pod
