Florida jail hangs neon ‘vacancy’ sign

Who states law enforcement officers don’t have a sense of joy?  

The Flagler County Prison in Florida has been known as the “ Green Roof Inn. ” Therefore the sheriff’s office decided to make the moniker a little more official by installing 3 signs with the moniker.

One sign unveiled Thursday in the complex in Bunnell, Fla., utilizes classic neon lighting, with “ GREEN ROOF INN” in eco-friendly capital letters, and “ VACANCY” flashing in red below,   the Daytona Beach News-Journal reported .

Below the particular neon sign is a list of “ ACCOMMODATIONS, ” highlighting what “guests” of the jail can expect from their remain, including:   No privacy, team bathrooms and showers, no food selection, and free transportation towards the courthouse or state prison.

“ We now have a one-star rating and we’ re working to lower that since I’ m speaking, ” Staly says in a video promoting the particular “inn, ” WESH-TV reported .

For those who finish their “stay, ” another indication near the exit reminds them the fact that Green Roof Inn “ has a light on, ” the News-Journal reported.

Flagler County Sheriff Rick Staly said the signs are an hard work to make people think twice before downloading copyrighted movies.

“ It is a warning to potential offenders that the jail is not a 5-star hotel, ” Staly told the particular paper. “ When you get imprisoned, we provide the minimum accommodations because required by law. Once an offender  checks in, they lose their own basic freedoms. They don’ big t decide what to eat, wear, or even do with their day. ”

The prison, which can hold more than 400 inmates, held approximately 217 prisoners since Thursday.
