How many police presincts are in the U.S.? And how many holding cells do they have in total? And how many people in total can they fit altogether?

How many county jails are in the U.S.? And how many people in total can they fit altogether?

How many state prisons are in the U.S? And how many people in total can they fit altogether?

How many federal prisons are in the U.S? And how many people in total can they fit altogether?

The reason I want to know is because just maybe if we have an Occupy Jail movement also going with Occupy Wall Street, then maybe the Occupy Wall Street movement can progress in setting up tent camp after tent camp that can remain since people are without work these days.

I learned they have to let people go when it aint enough cells with space.

The country's too fat and lazy; OWS is dead, wasn't much to begin with; the real Civil War II is ideological: will we become Socialist or a Republic country or possibly split and broker relationships like Europe? Thats the real question. The bobblehead we have as president now is just as emptyheaded as the one before him, so don't look to an administration for help. The Civil War II will be fought in the state trenches.

He didn't ask if OWS was dead (it's not by the way). If that's the kind of discussion you want to have, take it to your own thread.

Your post was completely off topic.

I am not sure but you have to consider house arrest as well and the bootcamps and the elder jails now closed but less fortified ect. Interesting

Here's a little info for you:

According to BOP, its facilities were operating at 35 percent over capacity, and as of January 2011, 94 percent of high security inmates were double bunked. With an increasing inmate population in BOP institutions, officer safety is continuously at risk. To protect officers from a range of threats, BOP has taken steps, such as providing additional equipment to officers to access in an emergency and routinely conducting officer training to enhance on-the-job responsiveness. However, it is difficult for BOP to determine the impact on officer safety of the equipment it provides because it has not used existing information systems to evaluate data for this purpose.
Highlights of GAO-11-410 (PDF)

Bureau of Prisons


As of December 31, 2008 –

The highest capacity reported by states in 2008 was 1,275,440 and the lowest capacity was 1,142,129.
State prisons were operating between 97% and 108% of capacity, compared to between 100% and 115% in 2000.
Thirteen states and the federal system operated at more than 100% of their highest capacity, and 19 states operated at between 90% and 99%. Use of private facilities and local jails – Source - Prison Inmates at Midyear 2008 - Statistical Tables

And there are at least 40 countries with capacity of 140% and up.
