Our facility was built for 750 inmates. We currently house a little over 2,000. We have 40-45 bunk beds set up in the common area of every housing unit. Average count in our larger housing units is 200 inmates per unit, 80-90 of which are not in cells, but on bunk beds on the floor directly in front of the officers desk.

I can remeber when we had so many inmates that we had beds in the dayrooms of the housing units. This was a nightmare. The officer always had the inmates up in their faces. The inmates were always loud because of the security lights that always stayed on.

On the floor in every available cell space. At the moment we are at 50% over our “Official Numbers”.

When a facility gets so filled with inmates that there is just no room left to house anyone else, where do new inmates go?
