Jail Enforces Visitor Dress Code

May 20, 2004  | 

Skimpy clothing is no longer allowed at St. Joseph County Jail in South Bend, Ind., following a new rule regulating visitors’ dress.

The new regulation, posted on a sign at the jail entrance, prohibits see-through tops, mini skirts, and short shorts and requires that underwear remain hidden. Hats are also prohibited because, officials say, they could be used to bring in contraband or display a gang emblem.

“A lot of people have gotten away with inappropriate clothing in the past. Hopefully this will prevent it,” says Keith Rininger, director of inmate services at the jail.
