Demon got moved to South Bay a few months ago. He said that it is a good camp for lifers or inmates looking at alot of time because they have some good programs to offer. He only has a few more years so it's not a good camp for him, Not to mention he is 3 hours away from me compared to the 45 minutes he was before he got moved! He also said that there are alot of drugs around the compound.

You can find good or bad anyplace - inside or out - you can be stagnant or work towards betterment where ever you are - and members of the DOC are like flies on the walls of all forums. My husband told me that SB was better and worse than other places. He wanted to be transferred there for years because they were known for their good food - but he found out that it is the same as all the other camps. He is not as stressed there - the guards can be sued because it is a private facility - which really makes a difference in their behavior towards inmates – no mace-ing inmates to death there.

Any information on South Bay would be aprriecated. How is it there? Who is the phone company there and how do they work? How is the canteen, food and prices? How are the guards? How is visitation and the process(every weekend? times) checking in?) ? With it being private any info would be great. I know they run things just a little different.

Infinity Networks is the phone company (1 866 681-2948) You are allowed $250 every month. If you go over that amount in a month then there is a block put on your phone until the balance is paid in full. You pay through your local/ long distance phone company. The guards are okay, but Joey was at Tomoka first, well once he got to South Bay he said that he doesn't have the freedom that he had over there, whatever that means. They do offer alot more programs than DOC. Here is some Info that I found. I copied this Info off of South Bay's Facility site. Hope this helps :)
