Arrow Lompoc FPC vs Atwater FPC

I have been reading over all the postings and the information on these two camps is not current.

Does anyone have advice and knowlege of what it is like at each of these two camps at the present time? Not that you get a choice but my lawyer tells me I can request it.
Thanks for the help.

Check the federal forum & you should be able to find people who have loved ones at these institutions. I have a penpal at Lompoc FPC, but he just moved there so I really don't know much yet.

Yes, I heard that, on Monday, there was an inmate fight at Lompoc FCI (low). One inmate was taken to the hospital. All three facilities were locked down, so no phone calls or visits.

Thank you so much for letting me know. I've been so worried yesterday and today trying to figure out what is wrong. That's makes me feel better, now that I know what is going on.

I haven't heard anything either since Monday. I found this article in the Lompoc Record which explains what happened:...

Three inmates hurt in prison fight

By Luis Ernesto Gomez/Staff Writer

The low-security section of the U.S. Penitentiary in Lompoc remained locked down Wednesday after three inmates suffered minor injuries in a fight Sunday night, a prison spokesman said.
The lockdown will continue until an investigation is completed, spokesman Erwin Meinberg said.
No staff members were injured, he added.

Meinberg declined to release the names of the inmates and the extent of their injuries, but said they were treated at the Lompoc District Hospital and released shortly after.

Several inmates were involved in a series of fights that broke out at two of the housing units in the low-security section around 10:45 p.m. Sunday, he said.

“As a precautionary measure, the low- and medium-security institutions were placed on lockdown,” he said. The medium-security area was taken off lockdown Tuesday, he added.

Meinberg declined to release details of the incident, including how many inmates were involved and whether any makeshift weapons were used and said officials “have an idea of what happened, but it's under investigation.”

During a lockdown, inmates are not allowed out of their “housing units,” and their work and educational programs are temporarily suspended, he explained.

He said the Lompoc complex has three different levels of security - minimal, low and medium.

The most recent riot at the Lompoc complex happened in June 2003 when a group of inmates allegedly attacked prison staff - including correctional officers, food employees and a chaplain - and caused more than $20,000 of property damage, according to newspaper accounts at the time.

Federal prosecutors reportedly charged eight prisoners with rioting, assaulting federal officers and destruction of federal property.

April 3 also marked 10 years after an inmate allegedly killed a correctional officer at the complex in 1997.

Inmate Roy Green allegedly used a makeshift knife to kill Scott Williams, 29, during a fight that also injured four other officers.

Prosecution in Green's case is still pending.

Luis Ernesto Gomez can be reached at 739-2218, or lgomez@

I visited at the Camp in Lompoc the hours are 8:30-3:00. The visiting area is kinda small but its a good visit. the c.o.s are very nice and don't trip on hugging, kissing, or hand holding. Its a really good visit.

Can anyone help me? How much money can you take in? In what demominations? Is there a change machine in the processing room? What color clothing is not allowed? What time are visits? How long are they? Any other info you can help me with for Lompoc. It's going to be 2 men going to visit, so necklines, tight clothes is not an issue. Thanks in advance.

you can find the address at the BOP website for Lompoc Low. I am not sure how long before he can contact you, but you could probably send letters and they should get to him...they haven't changed the address there in a while as far as I know. Good luck!

Talking Lompoc Visiting Info

Can somewho who has visited recently provide me with some basic visiting information. My brother is in route and I am trying to get info such as the dress code, the time to show up, is there a line, can you make email or phone appts, how much money is allowed inside, can you take pics, and the visiting days. I read online Sat - Mon....are those days still good days.

I visit my husband but he is at a state facility not a federal facility and I understand they are totally different. Any info will be greatly appreciated.

Happy Holidays!!!

Default Boyfriend in Lompoc USP

I know this is an old thread, but perhaps you still log on here or receive updates. My boyfriend and father of our children is in Lompoc hopefully for only 18 months before he is transferred (so 8 more months) since the kids and I live in Illinois. We haven't seen him in 2 years!! I wanted to go visit him in a couple months but was wondering what the visits were like. If you receive this can you please let me know your opinion on bringing children (6 yr old twins and a 3 yr old) to the visiting room, what it's like, if there is an area for the kids to "play"... I would very much appreciate this information!! Thanks in advance Or anyone who can answer this question it would be greatly appreciated!!

The visitation at Lompoc FCI is very family friendly. I cannot say how it is in the higher security prison next door.

Has anyone else been having trouble with the mail room at Lompoc? I have been an advocate for the same prisoner for 2 1/2 years. I have been sending him cards in pencil, and he resends them to his grandma. I have done so at 3 different institutions and never had a problem. All of a sudden I am getting them back. And not just ones with light writing, one was written full page. I have called there and there is no regulation they can't be written in pencil. The previous cards were returned by the prison, today I got one unopened with an unable to forward on it. I don't know if it is from the inmate who can be very fickle, or the guard who is just too lazy to open them. I only check my PO box once a week so several went out in pencil before I even knew they started sending them back.

Thanks in advance
