I'd like info too. It's damn near impossible to find any and the Edgefield sticky thread here is dead.

My brother is in detention in Atlanta waiting to transfer there. He's hearing nothing but bad things about the camp from people transferring out of Edgefield. They're telling him it's so bad he's better off getting a violation and being transferred out of there.

I'm telling him to make up his own mind after he gets there because the folks he's running into might be sour grapes because they f'd up.

I do see on the forum here that they do a lot of lockdowns. There was an inspection done a couple years ago and it was very critical of the almost compete lack of medical care.

Anyway, if anyone out there has anything positive to say about Edgefield, I'd sure like to here it!

I've never been to Edgefield, or talked to anyone who has. He is now experiencing some of the worst conditions anywhere in the bop at USP Atlanta. Constant lockdown, no air conditioning in the Atlanta heat, no fans in the cells that have the doors locked constantly ( the supposed one hour a day for phones or showers is often cancelled, allegedly for staff shortages) no book carts, etc.

Most of the Edgefield posts on PTO are about the medium security FCI, not the camp and the conditions are completely different in the two prisons. Any minimum security camp is preferable to any FCI or USP, but I'm sure that some are better run than others.

My brother's in Atlanta right now too. Says it's horrible, constant lockdowns, no toilet paper, food really bad compared to Jesup and Tallahassee. He's pretty despondent. I'm really hoping Edgefield isn't as bad as the rumors say. It's bizarre how little info there is on the place. At least Atlanta is so bad that Edgefield will seem good in comparison.

Page 64 and 65 of the Edgefield A&O Handbook says that they do have Unicor jobs there.

What are you wanting to know about it? They do have unicor. I don’t know anything about the camp but my guy is at that facility. I don’t know much. They seem to get locked down a lot but I have nothing to compare it too as he only spent a short time at other facilities

My friend has been there for about 2 years and in my experience they are not usually locked down often or for long. I don’t really have anything to compare it to but in general they may get locked down briefly every few months. This current lockdown is longer than usual. I can think of maybe one or two other times in the last 2 years that they’ve been locked down for a week or more. They got searched extensively for contraband after two fights involving weapons and some cell phone and drug use over the last few weeks.
