I have been here about three weeks. I got picked up for VOP

Not much to do here. Mostly I write on the wall. I really don want to talk to you.

– A.W, age 16

Harrison County Juvenile Detention Center in Biloxi, Mississippi, operated by Mississippi Security Services, formerly the Biloxi City Jail. The facility is currently run by Director Warden. A fire in 1982 killed 27 inmates when it was a city jail (adult). There is currently a lawsuit against Harrison County Juvenile Detention which forced them to reduce their population. They must now maintain an 8:1 inmate to staff ratio. Today there are two girls here.
