    How do I tell an inmate his mother passed away?

      Hi Aurora,

      I would recommend contacting the prison chaplain for help in communicating the sad news to the inmate.

    I am concerned about the shower situation at the min security housing. Is it private stalls?

      Hi Zach,

      I do not know of any prisons with private stalls.Inmates now shower in their boxers. You should not shower alone. The potential for problems at minimum security are far less than the other levels. Use common sense. You may want to look at our 25 rules of survival listed on our home page.
