Miscellaneous FAQ's About The Ney Unit

There is usually no vehicle inspection unless the unit is on lockdown. Once you park you car you go into a small buiilding where you will need your driver's license and the inmate's TDCJ number. You will go though a metal detector before going to the unit. There is outside seating with about approx. 12 tables. The vending machines are always full on Saturday, but get low on Sundays. The guards have always been helpful and courteous.
