Officer and inmate shake hands
By Warden Amanda Gentry, Pocatello Women’s Correctional Center

Officer Waters asked the inmates here at Pocatello Women's Correctional Center's Unit 2 to write a paragraph about why they think Unit 2 functions so successfully.  

84 out of 90 inmates responded to this assignment.  

The highlights of this writing assignment are as follows:

• Consistency of the officers.

• Great classes.

• Programming and teaching staff are incredible.

• Staff are very patient—which is very appreciated.

• Staff are respectful of people’s boundaries.

• Officers treat the inmates with respect.

• Officers hold us accountable.

• Officers truly care about our success.

• Integrity is a must – If you don’t know what integrity is, you will learn it before you leave Unit 2.
