Most of the intoxicated persons we deal with would rather go into the lock-up than the voluntary side of the shelter.
In the tank, they each have their own washrooms (a grate on the floor) and bed mat, as well as a private room with space to stretch out.
In the shelter, they are ass to elbow, staggered like sardines in a can. The smell is not far off from an old can of fish either.
