No E-Cigs For Sangamon County Jail Inmates

The Sangamon County Jail will remain a smoke-free zone… even if the smoke is only water vapor.


Undersheriff Jack Campbell says county officials did consider following the lead of two Southern Illinois counties that now allow inmates to use “electronic cigarettes,” battery-operated devices that produce a nicotine-infused water vapor.


But Campbell says there were concerns that an inmate could figure out some way to rig the device to cause damage or use it as a weapon.


The counties that are using them say it’s a way to improve inmate morale, but Campbell says jail inmates here already get plenty of perks, like cable TV and gym facilities.
