    I really dislike it when i go to visit an inmate and there is 40 stations and all five visitors as placed in the side by side.

      the new Lubbock county detention center was obviously paid for by OUR tax dollars and who ever was paid to install phones and monitors was given JUNK !you go up there and more than half the phones have so much static people can’t understand what each other is saying.Today I went up there and NOW more than half the monitors don’t work ! I think OUR TAX DOLLARS were badly mismanaged ! this is the SOLE response of LUBBOCK COUNTY to correct!with the unreal prices inmates are being charged for food and essentials,they can afford to fix these problems correctly!

      Yea that’s stupid!!! They have like 40 on one side 56 on the other.. I or u or the inmate may not want the other people to hear our convos

    I hate that when an inmate is sick, they have to wait days for medical attention. My friend was an inmate and lost 50lbs in 2 weeks because he couldn’t stop throwing up. All he got was one peptoBisomal tablet in the 2 weeks he was sick.

  3. charlie says:

    I hate that most of the women visitors feel like they have to talk as loud as they can at the video screen. No one else wants to hear what you have to say to your felon husband. The rest of us want to hear our own conversations.

  4. Cam says:

    Ever time I make a visit im sitting next to someone when there 40 something stations open and there just listening waiting for their someone

  5. ronnie says:

    i went in today and it really irritated me that there were female inmate trusties cleaning the area but they were talking loud and laughing, they kept looking at my screen and others too, it was very disturbing i couldnt even enjoy the only 20 minutes i had with my husband. when i walked out they were cleaning the front doors and were still laughing and talking loud.

  6. valerie says:

    would like to know what the website is to puchase a inmate care package? and also if you can deposit fund online to their account? and just another question i have most jails consider how far the family is coming then determines the amount of time for visitation. Why is it that lubbock county is the one that dont. I drove my children three hours to see their father for a 20 minute visit. Keep in mind i arrived around 2:45 and didnt get to see him till approximately 4:30. It made for a long day with two children under the age of four.I was kinda upset about that but it is what it is i suppose. But i also want to add staff working visitation were very friendly and helpful.

      The care packages are a joke I ordered on October 17 didn’t get shipped til the 21st and still not handed out i think there is a law I’m trying ti figure out as my l/o said there are alot of them not getting them may contact news stations’the website is access corrections to put money on books

    • zach says:

      the inmate packages are a joke I ordered mine on the 17th of October it was sent out on the 21st they’re still holding it along with several othersI’m looking in to see if there’s anything that can be done legally going to contact the news station as well as far as a website for adding money its access corrections but be very careful when you put your debit card information in

  7. ceiana williams says:

    Well i turned myself in but my tickets were over a thousand dollars but the judge droped them to four hundred and ran them concurrent only stayed for six days but booking is long and the guards be barely coming in and already be sitting on there butt eating doing nothing but talking shame when u jus getting to work

  8. Elaine says:

    Lubbock County has a grievance procedure that’s basically a joke; the guards have total control. I was recently an inmate there and was told by a Sergeant Young that if a guard told me to stand on my head then I should do just that and being a working inmate is a joke, John Dear only allows Hispanics and whites do shoe shine & visitation cleaning unless you’re a likable looking african American; there are young women in there with no morals or self respect for themselves. I did my time by the grace of God!

    • anonymous says:

      I agree with you. I just got out and my grievances were basically ignored. Lubbock county jail is a joke and run by many people who have a power trip. And medical is a joke too, it’s hard getting pass the paramedics who think they are doctors.

  9. David Dunn says:

    I dnt know know why any of this is a surprise to anybody in the first place! How long did the jail stay vacant when it was first built? It’s a business, nothing more and nothing less! For every inmate that is in there they receive federal and state funding per individual. The better staffed it is, the less money they make!! If it were, indeed, a “corrections” facility, then the same amount of effort would be put into getting them out as is being put into getting them in!! C’mon folks, why else would there be a quota for arrests, convictions, and beds filled, but not inmates rehabilitated??

  10. dan isch says:

    if I have a complaint,it’s this;it takes 4-5 minutes after the phone is off the hook for the screen to come on ! for as much as the taxpayers had to pay for that facility,you would think,and expect,those monitors to work much,much faster !!!

  11. Victoria says:

    I accidentally blocked the number from the correctional facility. I called my phone carrier, the detention center and 713 number nobody can help me umblock it…. anyone know what to do?????

  12. Alice Glazner says:

    Today was the first day I went to see an inmate. I had to sit right beside another person. I couldn’t hear well because of it. I also had a very bad connection, it was hard to hear. I guess I should have asked to move to a different station. Overall it wasn’t a very good experience.

  13. Maria says:

    This is a horrible place, it takes away many rights of the immates, but no one can complain because they will feel repurcussiions, the visitation check in most of the time have 2 people and only one checking in visitors, the other is on the phone or on break. The visiting stations are hard to listen into and it takes forever for the immate to come to be called to the phone. BUT who do you complain to? Who would listen? The family is also paying for the inmates mistake, we have to drive all the way out there, have to worry about the machines working to put money in, and then they charge us for it, the care packages are very limited and take forever to get delivered! NOT A GOOD PLACE for inmate or families. Sheriff Rowe needs to do something about it!

    • Anonymous says:

      You got to remember Maria they are there due to a crime. Your comfort is not something they care about. It does suck and it is a joke that so much money was spent. Not much of a difference from the old jail downtown.

      • true says:

        And Maria, you wouldnt have to be complaining if that inmate would have not committed a crime. You wouldn’t be visiting those places. And i agree with Anonymous, they don’t care . My opinion its d inmate fault. And if d inmate didnt think of his loved ones why should the facility..

          We are all human and make mistakes! People do bad things because they are hurt! There sins are no worse than ours and they should be treated with dignity!

      • wrong says:

        Inmates aren’t there because they committed a crime, inmates are there because they were accused of committing a crime. …i know “every inmate claims to be innocent” but i do know that some of them really are. ….Lubbock County is really bad about labeling people.

  14. taxpayer says:

    I turned my self in on a speeding ticket. I sat and watched a staff member book in 3 people in an 8 hour shift all they did was eat or go on brake at least 6 times. I sat for 12:00 hours for it. What a GAINT waste of taxpayer dollars to pay someone to sit and eat for 8:00hrs.Then you listen to Kelle Rowe talk about respect got to give alittle to get it .I want a refund on my taxpayer dollars.Maybe we need to reevaluate what kind of service that the staff performs!!!!!!!!!!!And the visits suck for families and inmates a like. Wished I had spent my tax dollars on something better . Or at least vote for someone who spends them better. I’m just saying makes you think huh

  15. unkown says:

    I hate that the new jail only allows you to talk two kids in some men n women have more kids n then they don’t let you switch out kids so they k all see there mom r dad

  16. Denise says:

    I put money on my husband’s books and commissary never came but once a week…he was with out and the guards there treated him like s*#@ …just cause he is a criminal doesn’t mean to treat them badly…my husband had caught chain and he wasn’t suppose to have gone the judge sent papers saying he was going to parole out of the county jail but no, due to he has a assult on a public police officer they wanted him gone. They refused and refused the judges paper work to buy time so they can send him?

  17. Trose says:

    All I got to say is some of them people in there like my husband are innocent!!!!! So just because someone is in the jail doesn’t mean they deserve to be there. Visitation does suck and the whoe jail system is a big joke. The system period is a joke and I had a PAROLE officer himself tell me that, the system is f***ed! But everyone is to scared of the GOVERNMENT to do anything about it myself included! I just pray for all the families with loved ones in jail and I feel yalls pain! I hope everyones loved ones come home ASAP!!!!

    • wrong says:

      I agree, my friend owns a company and had a woman working for him,..after he let her go, she made crazy accusations now he’s sitting there having to wait for court… …its a clear case of her being vendictive,…he’s innocent, but because he’s self employed and has his money tied up in his business, he doesnt have enough to bond out so he’s just having to sit there til it goes to court,….until proven guilty, all rights are required, by law, to remain in tact.

  18. Trose says:

    They say you are innocent until proven guilty but not anymore its your guilty until proven innocent and if you are not proven innocent then you are presumed guilty. I just don’t understand. They are not just hurting the inmates what about all the wives and kids that are out here struggling trying to survive day to day because there income has been ripped away from them.
