No doubt about it, Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd wants to make sure serving time in Polk County jails will be an experience inmates do not want to repeat. Toward that, he has instituted several actions, such as no longer providing peanut butter, tea, coffee and milk. Instead, there are crackers, water and powdered milk. If they want those items, he suggests inmates stay out of jail.
Nor are male inmates given free underwear. If they want it, they can buy underwear just like law-abiding citizens do; the only difference being inmates have only one place to make such a purchase — at the jail commissary. Otherwise, inmates are free to “let the breeze travel up one leg and down the other,” as Judd is fond of saying. He also has taken away weight and basketball hoops, as well as unlimited TV viewing. There also is no more tobacco smoking allowed.
