      Hi Herravia,

      I recommend calling the facility to confirm the requirements for a baby to attend visitation.

    I was once an inmate at Polk correctional and as I was leaving to be transferred to another prison due to my medical issues, a officer who’s last name ends in “LEMKE” was very disrespectful and told me I had 5 seconds to put my S*** in my property bag. It couldn’t be done but he made me throw all of my personal belongings including, my pictures,books “paid for”, mail, cards from family and not to mention my BIBLE. He also acted racist toward the African American Inmates, but not going to get into all that. My point of this comment is people don’t know what goes on behind those doors if they ain’t experienced it first hand. Officers,some nice,some mean, will take out their personal problems out on you. I’ve seen some bad things happen at that place and officials do nothing about it, they don’t care about your loved ones. If you don’t like your job or you are gonna abuse that little bit of authority you have,LITTLE”, then stay at home or find another line of work. Things like this need to be looked at because the cameras don’t see everything. Prisons ain’t made to b nice but inmates who make MISTAKES don’t need to be abused. Polk needs its doors shut for good. The guards who do these things are cowards and most likely was bullied in school or picked on and now they want revenge on someone. God help that man if I ever see him in public. I’m home with my wide and son now and have a job,guess I’m still ignorant huh,? Everyone makes mistakes some just dont get caught. Another officer who is very racist is BAIRD.. He sprays mase under the dorm doors while inmates are sleeping thinking its funny,that can hurt not to mention kill someone in their sleep. But this is the system the government wants your loved one in when they make that mistake in life no matter what the crime is. I’m no snitch or ratting on these guys it’s just they are pathetic and don’t have respect for inmates and were prolly bullied alot. It is what it is guys until the day we meet again. But prisons ain’t meant to make the person worse who’s going in there for whatever the reason,and stuff like this is why prisons are overcrowded and the state is broke.. I pray for anyone who has a loved one behind those walls anywhere, and for the inmate them self it’s tough. Keep ya head up. GOD Bless.

    My son is currently in Polk Detention Center in Butner, NC. He was suppose to do thirty days. In his letter is wanted me to look up on the public records site for his release date and relay the information to him. He does not know this information. Something is wrong with the site. He was to do six to eight months and time served. He indicates he is waiting for his green clothes. It takes about two and a-half weeks to get a letter from him. I live in Havelock, NC. Do you know how I can obtain this free information. Otherwise I will just call the prison.

      Hi Lauretta,

      For this information, we recommend contacting directly the prison.

    I am outraged at the fact that I can’t get ONE person there that knows how to transfer phone calls and the fact that Mr. Safrit does not return calls. That man seems to set a world record on attending
    Meetings and his super hero power of “just walking in” to “being on a pending phone call”. There is a judgement that my son be allowed to go to SC to serve out his remaining few months. It amazes me that not one person there can tell me why he is still there. No two people there have the same story when asked. The assaults and bullying in that place are unreal but yet tax dollars pay for individual secretarys for all of these people who obviously do not take their jobs seriously. When the operators don’t know who to transfer you to, they get attitudes and complain about the phones ringing constantly and how the superintendant is busy and how there are over a thousand inmates there. Suggestion: if the people in the positions of power there would do their jobs the phones WOULDN’T being ringing nonstop. My son has a mental illness and it’s like I have told a joke when trying to explain to each and everyone of these people. They ask if I want the number to Raleigh….I say yes…..hold please……don’t hang up she’s looking for that number….are you still there…..give me your number again and give me til noon to get “someone” to call you back. Seriously folks, we were not given handbooks on this facility neither were the inmates. I must have missed orientation too. Why do they assume we know how that place operates when not one employee seems to know. I am disguisted with this place!!!!! I have absolutely nothing nice to say. Some people need morals and God in their lives.
