Shortly after arrival and booking, inmates will receive an inmate handbook. This handbook contains information about jail rules and services. Inmates are responsible for knowing the information in the handbook and abiding by all jail rules and policies.
In addition to the rules outlined in the handbook, inmates are expected to:
Follow all staff directives and requests immediately
Respect jail property and the property of others
Maintain daily personal hygiene habits
Behave in a cooperative and responsible manner
Report any emergencies to staff immediately
Failure to follow facility rules will result in departmental disciplinary action which could include time in disciplinary lockdown, loss of good time or, in serious cases, criminal charges.
Inmates have the following rights while in jail:
Access to the courts by letter or through their attorney
Confidential access to their attorney or legal assistance
Protection from abuse and corporal punishment
Freedom from discrimination based on race, sex or religion
Access to information on jail rules and regulations and consequences
