    The CO’s there put you in your cell and for get about you for hrs on end. Never doingdoing security checks. That needs to be fixed.

  3. Halen Payne says

    Something needs to be done about this place. Someone should have been watching him. Brent should still be here with us, he was only 28 years old. If only someone would have been there to stop it. I blame Fairfield County Detention Center for his death. If it wasn’t for you, he would be with us today. So I hope that whoever wasn’t there doing what they should have been doing gets what they deserve and that’s to be fired. Justice for Brent.
