Default Crittenden, Marion & Woodford Detention Centers

Hello -

Does anyone know someone currently at, or having been at the detention centers in Crittenden, Marion or Woodford?

I'm hoping to get some 'real experience' feedback on those locations.

Thanks!

Woodford is fairly decent. I've heard complaints about the other 2 but none on Woodford.

I don't remember the specifics but at my job I have taken phone complaints on several of the jails. Woodford is not one of them. Fulton, Webster, Crittenden, Grant, Marion, Warren, and Bullitt are some that guys and gals complain about often.

None of them are great. Most don't follow the rules/regulations as they should. But then again, it's jail. As the saying goes, their house, their rules.

Thank you! I appreciate the feedback. I was considering Marion over Woodford, but it would seem we should focus on Woodford then. Marion offers SAP, so it seemed like an extra bonus to have that in the same location. Ultimately doesn't make a difference, I suppose.

And yes, it's jail - so there are few expectations you can hold onto. Then again, these things are still bound by the rules and regulations set by the state. It seems the state relies upon the public to hold them accountable. *shoulder shrug*

If you don't mind my asking, what is your job? Something with the state, or some kind of advocacy organization?

I don't think he will get to pick a location. Once at Roederer, they get to pick 3, but it seems as though they are not sent to any of them but wherever the DOC wants them to go, usually far away from home.

As for my job, let's just say yes to both.

What were the complaints about Marion? My friend heard they may have openings in the MRT program and was going to write to them and see if could transfer into it. But then I had nagging feeling about it, so I came back to this thread.

I don't recall. That was a while ago. Some counties are worse than others but the complaints are the same really. Not enough jobs, not enough programs, not enough time outside of their cells, not clean, not enough food, etc.
