My name is Patricia Murphy. I have a criminal justice degree and I have worked at the Marion Adjustment Center, Marion County Detention Center and Northpoint Training Center.
I read Hack Marcum's piece in the CKNJ and I commend his idea of having the inmates prepare their own meals and maintain a kitchen. An inmate needs that responsibility to maintain a productive jail at the lowest cost possible. I was shocked when I found out that the canteen and kitchen at the Taylor County Detention Center was contracted out.
