Even though I wasn't a real criminal the guards still had to make sure I wasn't smuggling anything inside. So standard procedure for intake was followed. I came in voluntarily so I didn't have a police escort. I did get to see the inside of the transport bus later on and I was glad I got to skip that part. The bus is filled with claustrophobia-inducing tiny cubicles with heavy locked doors.
Entering the prison you first have to get past the metal detector beep-free after which you are led into the 'dirty waiting room' (it's not actually dirty). Once the guards have time for you they lead you to the shower where you have to fully strip and take a shower. There is a list of stuff you're allowed to bring in (3 items of each piece of clothing, 15 photos and so). Anything else is stored away. An account is opened where your money is stored if you brought any. If you didn't bring anything (because the police lifted you out of your bed for instance) you are supplied with the basic necessities.
After the shower you go to the 'clean waiting room'. People obviously spent a lot of time in those waiting rooms considering all the stuff written on the walls. Most wall-text consisted of peoples names, or the places they are from. The word HATRED was also common. To my surprise I didn't find a single swastika though.
Finally, about an hour later, I was taken to Biometrics where my height, weight and fingerprints were recorded. Afterwards I was taken directly to my cell since the inmates of F wing were outside (the hardest criminals in the prison).
Continued in my next post.
