Do Process Server Care if There is a Difference Between a Prisoner and an Inmate?

Yes, the difference between a prison and a jail is the length of time for inmates. Jail inmates are short-term hold over’s and Prison inmates are long-term residents of the institution where they are incarcerated. Jails are usually run by local law enforcement or local government agencies and exist to hold inmates awaiting trial or serving a short sentence. Prisons are usually run by state and federal agencies, private contractors who over see inmates serving longer term sentences.

Because prisons are designed for long-term incarceration, they are better developed for the living needs of their populations. Jails, on the other hand, tend to have more transient populations and less well-developed facilities. As a result, many inmates prefer their stays in prison given the more regular life, the greater availability of programs, and better facilities. Indeed, many repeat offenders will ask for prison time rather than time in jail followed by probation if given the option. Some inmates complain that jail, given its constant flow of people that can often interfere with an inmate's ability to sleep, eat on a regular schedule, or participate in exercise. Some jails also suffer from budget shortages that lead to lower quality or inadequate food. these issues often lead to claims of violations of the inmate's right against cruel and unusual punishment. However, such claims are rarely, if ever, successful.
