Allow Detention Center Inmates to Stay Warm

The responsibilities of the staff of the Spartanburg County Detention Center is to provide for the basic needs of the inmates under their supervision. The need for warmth is a basic human need. The Detention Center is always kept at a very cool temperature, mostly in the 50 and 60 degree range. I urge you to change your policy on inmates not being allowed to use their blankets during the day to at least allowing them to use their second blanket while leaving their beds intact. This would not ony be the ethical decision to make, but also the practical one, considering that inmates would be calmer and there would be less disciplinary actions having to be taken just because an inmate simply wanted to be warm.
