“Everybody Treats Me Well”

MTC corrections staff are trained to treat all individuals within our care with respect, dignity, and concern. This is what one man at the IAH Detention Center in Livingston, Texas experienced on his very first day at the center. He spoke through an interpreter.

Like he says, when he arrived here, everybody was very nice to him. He didn’t know where he was going, and he was very afraid. When he arrived here, he felt safe because everybody treated him well. Even though it’s his first day, he feels safe.
