If you remain in custody of this facility, you will be assigned to one of several housing units known as "pods". There are many cells/beds inside a pod, and one of them will be assigned to you. You do not choose your cell assignment. This is performed by the Classification Officers. Offenders will be housed or removed and relocated to any other cell/assigned housing area in this facility or any other facility as deemed necessary by the staff of this facility.

After you receive your housing assignment, your cell areas need to be inspected by you the offender and all deficiencies brought to the Housing Officers attention. You are responsible for making sure that your cell remains in the same condition it was on the day you first occupied it. Your cell area will be inspected prior to your being released. Any damages to your cell will result in criminal prosecution and delay in your release requiring you to post a bond. Any offender who knowingly damages his/her cell will be prosecuted under RSMo. 221.353.

Televisions have been provided in general housing day rooms. They will be turned off during head counts, meals, and at the discretion of the Pod Officer. The Pod Officer is the only person authorized to operate the televisions. Any attempt to adjust or control a television is a violation of facility rules. Standing in front of or beside the television is forbidden. Chairs will be kept on the carpeted area at all times.

Anytime a Pod Officer calls for "Lock Down", you will immediately return to and enter your cell. If your door is locked, you will stand in front of your door quietly until acknowledged by the Pod Officer.

You will be expected to cooperate during head counts. Disciplinary action will be taken against any offender interfering with head count procedures.
