Contract To House County’s Female Inmates

Contract To House County’s Female Inmates

femaleinmatesThe Potter County Commissioners have approved a contract with Elk County to hold female jail inmates, at a cost of $55 per day. Potter is also responsible for medical expenses and transportation.

There are no accommodations for female prisoners at the Potter County Jail. The number of women requiring incarceration has risen dramatically in recent years, the commissioners noted. Potter also has an arrangement with jails in Clinton, Tioga and Jefferson counties to house female inmates.

i thought that when the county jail was remodeled, it was set up to house female inmates, but the hold up was that the county wouldnt hire female guards? anybody else remember this???

Anonymous said...

Yup I remember that what happened to that

The cost to hire enough female guards to man the female side would be much more then $55.00 a day! Just sayin

why is that a female guard can watch either gender but a male guard cannot. seems a little unfair to me.

Perhaps they should start by treating their employees that they have now better instead of constantly pulling crap (like suddenly deciding to go to rotating shifts for everyone). And they treat the part-time guards like disposable pieces of crap.

Perhaps it's time for a new administration at the jail (and the county as a whole). It's time for the current Sheriff to retire (heck, he's never there anyway) and get some new blood in the office.

But then again, this is Potter County where we don't ever want anything to change or improve. Rural and crumbly, and we like it that way. Whatever.....

So instead of putting people to work in potter county will just give money to another county way to potter county

this is a gender injustice. my mom didn't burn her bra so that our county, tax-sponsored jail could be so sexist. we're never going to shatter the glass ceiling unless we admit that women are at least as smart as the common criminal.

This came up many years ago and they found out it would cost hundreds of thousands of dollars to house females at the jail with a seperate wing and three shifts of female guards and other arrangements.

I truly wish that all of the brilliant people who respond negatively to these issues of which they know practically nothing about would run for election to the offices for which they are sure that those who occupy them are totally incompetent. Housing anybody for $55/day is ridiculously cheap.

I do agree this Sheriff needs to go (He cant controll his guards or jail as a hole.) He does not support his warden and the guards show her no respect. That place has been out of control for too long. He needs to go!!!!!!!

Many of the current Potter County Guards lack the maturity to guard just the males let alone Females. It might help if the Sheriff and warden hold the guards accountable for the games they play. Instead of covering them up.

I was recently held in another facility for Potter COunty as a woman and think its crap the way we get shafted around. When they send us to other counties it is VERY costly on the inmate and Potter County girls are not allowed to do the programs and such that the other girls do from that county of the jail you are in. Nevermind, that if your loved ones want to visit it takes at least an hour and a half if you are in Tioga......3 hours if you are in Clinton and so on. This is definatley a mans county when it comes to criminals but with the uprising woman offenders Potter County really needs to look into another option.

I hope small-minded dildynes on here do not jump all over Denise for her comments, as she makes some good points if you really think about it. As for the comments about the sheriff and the guards and such, there are only a handful of people who have firsthand knowledge of those issues so why not work within your system and fix it?

Don't do the crime so you don't have to be in jail to begin with its not supposed to be a luxury!

$55 per day may sound cheap.. but that's for one person? Say you only have 10 female prisoners.. in one month's time that's $16,500.. thats NOT including transportation or medical expenses.. Now I'm not sure on how many female inmates there are but I'm guessing more than 10? The more there are, the more sense it makes to keep them at PoCo Jail.
