GREENE COUNTY, Ga.
— An Atlanta-area jail says it is not an institution where women are “protected” and where men are not required to wear a mask during visits.
Greene County Sheriff Steve Clark says that is not the case.
The sheriff’s office issued a statement on Friday saying that while he has received several complaints about the treatment of female inmates, “The Sheriff’s Office will not condone the practice of inmate clothing and behavior.”
Clark said that his office would investigate the allegations against female inmates and would take appropriate action if warranted.
“While I have never met a female inmate who would want to wear clothing, I do not condone inmate clothing,” he said.
Clark says that while it is “not our goal to violate the rights of women inmates, we have seen some inappropriate behavior and have worked closely with our male counterparts to ensure this never happens again.”
The statement added that “the Sheriff’s office takes these allegations very seriously and we are conducting a thorough investigation.”
Clark added that he was concerned about “the possibility of male prisoners being in violation of court orders” and that he has “zero tolerance for this type of behavior.”
