Default Federal Facility at Coleman on Lockdown

If anyone has relatives serving time at the Federal Facility in Coleman, Fl, USP 1 has been on lockdown since last Wednesday and all visits for all facilities (except the Camp) were cancelled indefinitely. If you're planning to visit anytime soon, I strongly recommend calling before you go. Luckily, I'm on 3hrs away so the blank trip wasn't that big of a deal for me.

Not sure what's going on, but I stopped a guard in the parking lot and of course he couldn't give details, he just said this usually happens when there has been an incident with an inmate & CO. I went inside and they checked a list and assured me that my son was ok. Has to be something serious because like I said all facilities, with the exception of the camp, cancelled visitation. Hopefully, they'll lift the lockdown soon because tomorrow makes 1 week.

Yes i called and spoke to someone as well, it truly sucks they canít even give us an estimate date of how long this lockdown is going to last this makes things so much harder on everyone If anyone gets letters and hears anything else please post it here so everyone can at least be informed thanks hoping we all receive calls soon

Yeah my bf told me the same thing he said he didnít know why but you could no longer send colored envelopes or cards or anything like that only letters would be accepted he didnít know why either prob people trying to smuggle things into the prison but he said in the most recent letter I received that they for sure should be out of lockdown on July 13th so hopefully thatís the right date and they will be out that day thatís all i heard so far but Iím sending a letter tomorrow so I will ask has he heard anything else about the date the lockdown should be over

First time I have been on in a long time. I need to re-learn the system. Con anyone tell me what it is like at the Coleman, Florida Low? Most of the posts I see on here are from years back. Just wondering how often they go on lockdown, is there much violence there, are there SO there and are they separated, what is the food like, what are the guards like, etc. My son is going there and we are trying to get a feel for the place. I read that they can not receive greeting cards, magazines or books from outside. Is that true? That is cruel. Do they have microwaves, can they do their own laundry and what is visitation like? Will be so grateful for a response as soon as possible. Thank you.

So far they can still receive books from outside. In Low security prisons, paperbacks can be sent directly from home, but hardbacks have to come from a bookstore or the publisher through the US Post Office. It was supposed to change, but there was so much complaining that they killed the book changes, at least temporarily.

I hope someone who is familiar with Coleman will answer your other questions.
