Can someone tell me why everyone in that jail is always locked down all day as if they are mass murderers? I've never been in one like that before and find it kind of disturbing. You can't even eat out in the pod or anything, and it's weird women are hired to watch over the men when they can walk around and watch you use the toilet. I've been in jail in bigger cities that don't even do stuff like that. There is no need for people to be locked down all day unless they do something wrong while they are in the pod. I bet the people that get 90 days are almost insane by the time they get out. It's basically solitary confinement. People should do their time, but not like that. It's wrong on so many levels.

I worked there many many years ago. The admin team & officers were great to work with. Can I come back? LOL

Is this just for tomorrow or will you be having another walk in interview day?
