Unhappy USP Hazelton lockdown 4/7/13

I'm really worried I haven't heard from my boyfriend since the 9th of April. He calls me everyday so I'm really upset. Is there a lockdown going on?

Well something must be up with him then. Can never get through when I call the prison. It says mailbox full. I'm trying to chill but kinda freaking out.

I know I'm really upset. I just hope he is okay. I thought he could be mad but even if he was mad he would talk to one of his friends or family. He isn't talking to anyone. So I dunno what could be up. Thanks and I hope we hear from him soon.

Default just a thought...

Is there a chance he's out of money? He may not have enough money to use the email or make phone calls. I don't know of any way to check how much they have in their accounts, but if you had $20 or so, you could deposit it and see if he calls. I hope everything is ok.

I haven't heard from my love since Friday either. I hope they get out today. Prayers that our men weren't involved in whatever resulted in a lockdown.

I hope so too. I just can't wait to get a phone call, such a boring weekend without him!

One more thing, how long does a lockdown usually last? Or is it always different?

I have been going through this for only 7 years but in my experience it has MOSTLY only lasted a day or up to 4. There are rare occasions that it is longer, just depends on what happened to result in a lock down. Keep your fingers crossed it is today they get out, but it really just depends. Some have tried calling the prison in the past but most times it seems you can't get through.

Thanks Mandie, have been with my partner for 2 and a half years but in 3 different prisons he has always been in the hole when they've had a lockdown so this is a first time for me! Its hard for me to call the prison too cause I have to call internationally and add codes and remember the time difference, and like you said most the time I never get thru anyway.

They don't answer the phone at Hazelton in the control room on the weekends so unfortunately we just have to wait till Tuesday (with tomorrow being a holiday they may not answer). The last bad lockdown at Hazelton was in July and that one lasted almost 14 days. We just have to stay strong, pray, hope it's over soon, and hope that none of our lo's were involved. Sorry I don't have better knew for you.

Haven't heard from my man since yesterday but I think he may have ran out of money for emails plus he has no minutes left, yesterday or the day before he said they were all locked down to their units and there had been lots of fightings and stabbings so he won't be surprised if they go on proper lockdown.

Got a corrlinks message tonight from a friend at Hazelton who said he expected them to be going on lockdown at any moment...so dig out your pens and paper in preparation. Hopefully, it won't last too long if it does happen.

Yes, they will receive mail, and also be able to send out mail - provided they have writing supplies and stamps available. It could run a bit slower than usual because there is always a greater volume of mail during a lockdown.
