Are the prisons secure?

Dear Editor,

First of all, how are you? I am infuriated after reading your article titled, “Suffolk women charged with a felony for misconduct as a deputy,” published Thursday, Sept. 7, 2023. Not only did Katie McCann Illegally convey items to a prisoner, she proudly smiled in her mug shot. Although the Southampton County Sheriff’s suggestion does not reflect the whole agency, I strongly disagree. As a citizen of a surrounding area, I wonder how many other deputies are doing the same as Katie? I think the security in jails/prisons needs to be more strict regarding deputies. Limit how many things that can be brought in and more thoroughly pat down deputies entering the building.
