It actually depends. Our county jail is in the process of upgrading their jail and part of the upgrade is to install cameras in the cells. The higher risk cells have had them for years because that is where they put people who are suicidal, or where they believe the person is at risk of injuring themselves so they can file a lawsuit against the Sheriff's department.

But yes, to your main point, there are cameras on the outside of the cell doors facing the doors and throughout the jail. You'll be able to know if someone visited during the suicide or if she was alone.

It is a 195 bed jail. I cannot confirm that this is true, I am only telling you what I hear from jail employees.
