Hi suebee

If you need to know anthing specific you can call the prison direct at 909-597-1821 and hit ext 4190 or 4191. Other than that I believe Colusa is in the MSF yard and should have no significan restrictions.

Colusa is a housing unit at the East facility which is level III behind the wall. It's nothing special.
