 1.  Safety Violation
It is reported that cell doors are left unlocked overnight and that some inmates refuse to sleep not knowing if they will be harmed by an intruder.  Also that doors are left open in the locked position during the day when the resident inmate is at work which perpetuates theft.

Resolution:  Hold duty staff accountable for making sure cell doors are locked and secured as required.
