flyinryn- My husband has been there for about a year now. I'm not sure exactly how many they keep there, but the capacity is 1,224. if you look at the tdcj website, they will have a unit directory, which has the stats of any unit you need info on.

My husband was just transferred from Gurney to this unit. I will be going every weekend if someone wants to ride. I live in North Texas between Denton and McKinney.

My son was also recently transferred to Choice Unit from Gurney. He seems to like it better. At least that's what his girlfriend told me. She was finally able to visit him. We were never able to visit him in Gurney. He wasn't there long enough. I don't see many people logging in for Choice Unit. Am I in the right place? It's nice to know someone out there has someone in that unit.

My son was just transferred this week to C Moore also from Gurney. I got a letter from him yesterday and he's working in the kitchen. In Gurney he worked outside and loved it. He is not an indoor person.

I'm wondering how long it takes to get in for a visit if you get there at 8:00 a.m. This is a very busy weekend but I'll be out of town next week for 8 days so can't visit next week-end. I hate to miss church on Sunday to visit, besides my other son is coming for Mother's Day. OMGosh! I'm whining aren't I! So sorry. I'll figure this out!!!

Missmyson40, I know how you feel, I was so scared for my husband when he first got in the system. He's been at Choice Moore since January 2008. He says there are a lot of crooked CO's there... but all the horror stories you hear...are just that. Yeah, it's prison...but it's not a hard core unit. Do you know what dorm he is in? If he's in my husbands dorm, I'll tell my hubby to befriend him. ;) Hope this helps!

MammaD, lol you're not whining! :) My husband has been at C Moore for almost a year and a half. I believe he can "apply" or ask for a different job. My husband is the Unit Artist right now. He has done several art projects there including a full wall mural. (not the one in the visitation room)
This weekend will be fairly busy because of Mothers Day...but I ALWAYS get there at 8:00am, and it's not bad at all! Most people come after church, so by noon or so they say it's PACKED. I'll be going in the morning and be there at 8:00...maybe I'll see you there! :)
Hope this reaches you in time!:)

My son started out in county about 8 months ago. He was transferred to Gurney (they call it naked Gurney because of being stripped searched all the time) two months ago and one month ago, he was transferred to Choice Moore (they refer to C Moore as the daycare of Texas prisons). I visited him on county and that was miserable through the glass on a phone. I didn't get to visit him at Gurney because he wasn't there long enough. I have been to C Moore on the 17th and the 24th of this month. I have to admit that it is so much better than county. I mean, two hours at a table, feeding him snacks, being able to touch and talk in person. It's 3 1/2 hours away but I plan on going often until he gets out. In county I just wanted a hug. I got that so I'm doing pretty good today.

djlowder...my son actually told me there was a Unit Artist this last weekend. :)

Do the same visitation rules apply at Moore? If you live 300 miles away, you can have a 4 hour visit? My husband just transferred to Moore and he told me all the visits are contact and I live in San Antonio, so just wondering if I'll be able to have a 4hr contact visit with him. Any help is greatly appreciated!

Yes, the same rules apply on visitation. Special Visits must be approved by the Warden and every unit is pretty much a stickler regarding the 300 mile rule. Here is a link that should help you. Speical Visit information begins on page 25. Hope this helps and Blessings as always.

Hey! I have a loved one at Choice Moore. He has been there about 7 weeks. I have gone to visit 2 times and it seems to go smoothly. How often are you able to make it to visit?

I live in Longview and my husband is there I havent seen him in six months due to transportation . It's horrible maybe we could share a ride if you live close enough.

Don't mean to 'butt in' here, but I am going to be making the trip to C Moore unit in the near future, and if anyone is in my travel path they are welcome to contact me to carpool or something. I will be traveling from MT Enterprise, which is south of Henderson.

Hi Kym - my husband just arrived at C. Moore this week. I haven't heard anything yet. Going for my first visit this weekend and hopefully will know more after that. Will you let me know what you learn?

My boyfriend is in there and I'm only 20 years old and have no way possible of going to see him. I hear the visits are 2 hr CONTACT and that would be such a blessing to see him.. I miss him so much. I have gas money if anyone can help I live in dallas.

this unit is run like they are suppose to be.according to my LO and other families LOs..the staff is usually easy to deal with there might be one or two we have ran into that is cocky but most are willing to help.
visits are all contact...unless there is an issue..contact inmate services reguarding your first visit...it may be just fine if your LO has been in the system long enough...just to be on safe side before you make that drive..
cars are not searched...you are...visitation roon is big and sunny...
pics are taken first weekend of each month.
