Does anyone know how long the lockdown at Solano is going to last? I got a letter stating until May, but he wasn't for sure. They were searching 2 yards and dorms as he was writing the letter. Does anyone have any insight on what's going on there??? Thanks a bunch.

lilsibah - Here is some info from Lt Wamble, the PIO. The contraband he is referring to are bullets.
The current Modified Program is institution wide, and is the result of the discovery of extremely dangerous contraband. Due to this contraband the entire institution is undergoing a systematic and thorough search.
We are trying to complete the search as expeditiously as possible and still do a thorough job. A decision on visiting will be made later today, and will immediately be posted on the 800 line. I believe the search will probably take us at least through next week, and very possibly the following. But again, the search is for the safety and security of the institution, staff and inmates; and will be completed as efficiently and expeditiously as possible.
Currently, inmates are not reporting to work or education assignments, and there are no phone calls being allowed. All aspects of the search process are being evaluated and updated daily.
The search is not the result of any medical issue, or inmate disturbance (riot).
I can't speak for the rest of the institution's phones, but I know mine has been working.
