Keith County Jail

Inmates in the Keith County Correctional Facility are categorized and housed depending on various regular characteristics and assessments for safety and security purposes. How safe and secure the inmates and facility depend on the correctional officers.   Housing chambers within the facility can hold up to 16 inmates, of which are holding cells. The rest are inside four cubicles, including Orange, Yellow, Green, and Blue. Blue and Yellow chambers have four separate units, whereas the Orange and Green are three separate units.  Each chamber consists of a table with four seats, a shared shower, and a book carriage. There are no privileges like fitting rooms with television sets and internet access for the inmates. However, the inmates have access to a small recreational room having limited exercise instruments. Recreational days range from Monday to Thursday.  Inmates participate in religious services with local volunteers. They also receive medical attention and guidance from the locals. The community usually donates reading materials, writing and drawing papers when inmates request for them.  The Keith County Correctional Facility serves three meals a day. Breakfast is a cold meal, lunch is served hot, and dinner is cold. Commissaries for inmates who want additional meals are provided weekly, whereas hygiene and phone calls are daily for their necessities.
