Mentally ill in Jail

One of the suicide blankets that HRRJ gives inmates. Hampton Roads Regional Jail in Portsmouth houses hundreds of mentally ill from the Peninsula. The special units sometimes hold mentally ill in solitary. There are anywhere from 6 to 12 inmates on suicide watch at any given time at HRRJ. The facility is staffed primarily by law enforcement personnel rather than psych staff.
