Confinement Officer Application
Some of the Services Provided to Inmates:
We provide routine health care to the inmates through the services of a licensed family practitioner and an LPN. The Physician conducts sick call weekly. The nurse comes in daily and screens medical requests, consults with the physician and then advises us on what health services need to be provided.
Outgoing mail is collected daily by the jail staff and mailed. All outgoing mail is stamped to indicate that an inmate of our facility mailed it. Incoming mail is received, opened, inspected, sorted and then distributed to the inmates. Inmates of this facility are not allowed to receive mail from inmates in any other confinement facility.
