Default Is St Brides on lockdown?

Anyone know if St. Brides is currently on a lock down? Recently transferred from a higher level, so not sure how locks work in dorm settings? unusual not to hear from LO in 2 days. Since there are no cells, do they just keep them in their pods and turn phones and kiosks off? Higher level facility had no issue advising when I called if they were on a lock down, but St. Brides says they can't give out that information. Anyone??

My husband is at Saint Bride currently. I believe they are on lockdown because he calls me at least 3 times a day and I have not spoken to him since Sunday 2/5/17 at 11:00 p.m. Hope this helps.

Thank you for your reply. My son usually calls me at least once per day and I last heard from him on Sunday. My son has only been at St. Brides for 2 weeks, so after 2 years up at Nottoway, we are trying to figure out how things are done at St. Brides. Hopefully the lock downs at a level 2 are quicker than level 3 where they lasted upwards of 2 weeks.

Good Morning! Have you heard from your hubby yet? Still noting from my son. Do you know how long the lock downs last at St. Brides?

Glad I came across this, I was starting to get worried. Haven't heard from my boyfriend since Monday morning. Usually get at least one call a day and one email. Hoping lockdown doesn't last long.

The mind definitely starts taking you to places, when you don't hear from them. I am so glad to have this forum to be able to reach out and pull strength form each other. I hope your call comes soon.

Hello 😃 I was able to confirm for certain that the entire facility is on lockdown. I questioned visitation this weekend and I was told it was going to be granted, so hopefully we will hear from our loved ones soon. 💕

Thank you so much! Drives me crazy that at higher level information about being on lock was freely given when asked, but I guess things are different at lower levels. I'm still grateful that he is now at a lower level. It just stinks that lock down happened within 2 weeks of transferring there while we were still trying to figure out all the new rules and procedures. Do you know how often and how long locks at St. Brides last? Nottoway sometimes went on for 2 weeks!! At least here they are not locked in a cell.

Ugh! Seriously?? I've never heard of visitation being cancelled during a lockdown, even at higher levels visitation always went on.

So, I just called St. Brides and they couldn't confirm or deny if visitation would be granted this weekend AND... I asked about the even/odd visitation and I was told that this weekend was an even weekend so only visits for numbers ending in an even number on both days. My son is odd, so I was told he couldn't get a visit this weekend. UGH!!!!

What?! I was unaware that there are now specific weekends for even/odd. They way they have been doing it the past few weeks odd gets visits on the odd day of the weekend and the even get visits on the even day of the weekend. That's ridiculous if they are going to change things again!

At this point, I have no clue and can't get a straight answer. I just want to visit my son.

Anyone hear from their St. Bride's L.O.? My son usually calls right before he leaves for school (12:30 ish) everyday and yesterday's (Monday 6/12/17) call never came. Last full lock was February.

Yes, there are on lockdown. My LO was able to get an email out yesterday morning letting me know they just cut the phones and they were on lockdown. I have not heard from him since. Hopefully they are off soon.

Thank you for the quick reply. I started counting the months and figured it had been 4, so they were due to hit. Curious to see if the removal of vending machines actually cut down on contraband <----- insert rolling eye and thick sarcasm
