Inmates are given an id number during their booking and admission into the detention facility
not sure, but it sounds right... but what sounds off is "a text from an inmate"... if he has a cellphone, it's a mistake because it could add time to his sentence if discovered.
Suicide watch is considered very serious and the treatment may be as extreme as being confined to a padded room with nothing in it, including clothing, if the inmate exhibits signs of hurting themselves.
