Do prisoners (jail or penitentiary) have pillows on their beds?

Asked by elbanditoroso (33280points) January 15th, 2020

Or is only mattresses, because pillows could be used as a weapon?

It depends on what area, and how much they budget for “luxuries”.

I had a vinyl mattress and no pillow. It was just jail overnight once, and another time for a weekend.
