Bolingbroke Penitentiary is the state prison located in Los Santos County.
Description[edit | edit source]
The perimeter of the prison is patrolled by the Blaine County Sheriff's Office and sometimes the Los Santos Police Department. There are armed San Andreas State Prison Authority officers standing near the entrances, making sure that no one attempts to break in or out and Department of Corrections officers on the inside monitoring the prisoner's behavior.
Prison Staff[edit | edit source]
DoC officers greet prisoners at the entrance gate and operate and defend Bolingbroke Penitentiary. Members of the SASP and selected civilians staff the prison and assist prisoners with rehabilitation. Prisoners are allowed to play pool, exercise, and make special prison slushy drinks during their stay.
Controversies[edit | edit source]
- Park Ranger Conan Clarkson was given "ass meth" by a Russian inmate, and became addicted. He smuggled the drug out of the prison and tried to give some to Judge Dennis LaBarre. He was advised to get rid of the drug.
- DoC guard Lauren Forcer and warden Kael Soze beat inmates Ricky Robins and Denzel Williams. They also forced the inmates to fight against each other in the prison yard.
- Prison staff often uses extreme methods of rehabilitation such as beating inmates and forced inmate combat.
- On November 29. 2019, inmate Kenneth Ruger was burnt alive during a prison riot while serving his 32 month sentence. Mr. Ruger died while under watch by DoC guards Snow, Copper, Raven and Forcer.
- Currently the prison has become a place where prisoners test their fighting skills and if one wins they get vulture & bragging rights. Also if the victory is witnessed among the most hardened prisoners serving long sentences and DoC they may receive special privileges and information from the Bolingbroke Beatdown Crew the most dominant prison gang in L.S. (Fighting is only prohibited when DoC are patrolling.)
