It’s been a year since COVID hit, and the women isolated from the outside world. The women on Closed Custody fare even worse. They are locked up for virtually the entire day, except for their ‘kennel rec’ and meals.

Is it any wonder they act out angrily every night? Guards say there are at least 2 or 3 self-harm attempts, and fights against each other and officers. A staff member told us the suicide rooms are overcrowded, and alternative cells have to be found to accommodate the surge in cases.

Yes sir, rehabilitation at its finest.
