  1. My daughter has been at 1200 bakerstreet. It is a horrible place. The guards lie. She was assultet by another inmate and they do nothing about it. She had her personal belongings stolen several times. I complaind nothing was done. When we visit they treat us like dirt too. I dont know what to do.

  2. I’m impressed, I have to admit. Rarely do I come across a blog that’s equally educative and engaging, and without a
    doubt, you’ve hit the nail on the head. The problem is something
    that not enough people are speaking intelligently about. I’m very happy I came across this
    in my search for something concerning this.

  3. Spent some time there a while back, ya it sucks but that’s the price. My only complaint was the arresting officer stole my Zippo lighter that was passed down from my grandfather. The case that clips on my belt was with my property, but the lighter wasn’t. Crooked ass pigs.

  5. It took me 4 hours standing in line to pay my husbands traffic tickets. There are no chairs or bathrooms. You stand. When I gave the clerk my money, she didn’t know how to enter it into the computer so I had to wait another hour. This system is severely flawed. I didn’t do anything wrong but was penalized. There needs to be change!

  6. How is an inmate supposed to know they have to call collect. My wife is trying to call me and we are never connected. I was told she is trying to make a free call that doesn’t work with cell phones. I set up a collect call account to accept her call but evidently she doesn’t know about that.

    • I am having the same issue very nerve wrecking.

  7. Girlfriend got booked, they registered all her stuff, I bailed her out. On her way out she noticed all the money was missing from her wallet they took from her (all the cash, even the coins). When she mentioned something to the police officer checking her out she got ignored, when she pushed it she was told to shut the f*ck up or she’ll be put back in the cell for longer. Was pretty sad to hear how she was treated, they aren’t lying when they say they treat you like dogs. And they’re thieves. Somebody really should check into this.

  8. I’m not from Houston my husband and I just moved here 2 yrs ago. My husband committed a crime, I didn’t, but we are still human beings. The male deputies are helpful, but the female deputies are horrible. I called processing to get some information about my husband being released. I didn’t know anything, and the woman that answered the phone was horrible and had no intentions of even trying to help me. And when I asked her what her name was she began yelling at me saying,”You don’t need to know my name.” I simply hung up feeling like wow, really, what my husband says is true, the people behind that glass are ignorant. These people servicing Harris County should be taught some bed side manner. We all serve a higher being and one day we all will be judged.

  9. They should treat the visitors better. But they can’t trust anyone!

  10. They broke the law. In my opinion, they should just have bread and water. They new what they were doing, and what would happen if caught. Or beat your wife. They should be punished. Hell they get cable….I don’t, they don’t have to worry about their next meal….I do have to worry. Their supposed to be treated like criminals. As for the visitors, don’t go up there….they put themselves in there….I never visited anyone in there….only in Montgomery. ….it’s good. Don’t do the crime if you can’t do the time. I tell my husband and sons.

    • Shut tf up everybody makes mistakes maria, let your ass have bread and water and see how long it is before u break dwn.

    • Remeber You’re not Prefect u have done some wrong but just didn’t get caught up

    • You are an evil bitch. I hope you get falsely arrested and see what it’s like.

  11. I’ve been to jail in Mexico and you stay on a mud floor and have rice to eat.These jails are not suppose to be clean like a hotel. Stay out of jail and you won’t have to visit.
    I can’t believe people complaining about the jails.
    I was an inmate and learned real quick this place is nasty. I have not been back since the 80 s. And you think it’s bad now. Back in the days it was100 times worse.
    So stop whinning

  12. I’m amazed that you’ve steyad in contact with someone for 13 years. There are very few people that I’ve steyad in contact for that long! I have high school friends that I still kinda keep in contact with but if it wasn’t for Facebook, I probably wouldn’t. What if you actually form a friendship with a death row inmate? How would you feel when they are put to death?

  13. I’ve read several just right stuff here. Certainly worth bookmarking
    for revisiting. I wonder how so much effort you place to create this type of wonderful informative site.

  14. If this is where tax-payer money is going to, then someone from Quality Control needs to take a look at this. There are major problems with this system. The jailers not only mentally abuse the inmates, but the visitors as well. They treat the inmates worse than animals. The jailers are the criminals in this case, and not so much the inmates. Mental abuse is a CRIME. The Medical Staff put LIVES in jeopardy, while talking amongst themselves about their personal lives. If these people can’t do their jobs, they don’t need to work there.
    I request that each officer and jailer and jail employee get frequent mental exams and drug tests. God sees everything, and these evil people will get what’s coming to them.

    • 100% correct!

  15. Got to the jail which is very unorganized although everyone was nice and helpful I though it was just absurd that I waited in line got scanned only to get all the way to the visitation booths and have my name called to tell me my cousin already had his visit for today. 2 hours. There should be a better system in place to prevent this!!

  18. They treat visitors as if they are criminals as well.

    • I absolutely agree. It’s terrible how they treat the visitors and everyone knows it. My friend girl told me that when her husband was in there she got treated bad too.

  19. I NEVER WENT TO JAIL BUT MY BROTHER WHEN TO JAIL AND HE SAID THAT THEY ARE SO RUDE AND I THINK BECOUSE THEY ARE POLICES THEY CAN NOT THREAD YOU LIKE ANIMALS GOD IS THE JUST FOR ALL OF US AND ONE DAY HE IS COMEING AND ALL THE PEOPLE DONT OVEY HES COMENNTS ARE GOING TO HELL

    • Well said

  20. I also think that our family should not have to be caged like animals if their charge is not violence related. I understand if the men are violent keep them behind the glass but if is not we should not have to see our husband’s or son’s or brother’s etc treated like a wild animal in my opinion . County Visitation should be like prison visitation .

  21. All my experience’s have been horrible .The officers are very rude to me and my kids they have the worst attitudes and for no reason at all. Its very disgusting always dirty and I think that we should be able to have at least 40 minutes to visit . Over all I’m very disgusted by everything . I think they should not have to be behind glass if your are married and your children are visiting we should be able to hold each other hands if nothing else I wish some of these things be addressed and at least concerited..Thanx

  22. It cost too much to keep it clean that often. Still it’s disgusting!

  23. Visitation area was disgusting. I felt like i needed a bath after sitting there for only 20 minutes. Maintenance should be kept up as least every hour if not more.
