Thanks for responding, my son was recently moved there and he called quickly to say they were going on severe lockdown and he didn't know when he could call again.


Are there frequent lockdowns in this prison? are there a lot of problems?

Your welcome. Glad to help. I was blessed to be able to know the little bit that I did know.
My husband was recently transferred also. It's been about two weeks, they have been locked down a few times in two weeks. It's difficult to tell because he has been there so little time. I KNOW your worried, so am I. That is why I finally got on here. They are in a maximum security prison a d because I believe the CO jobs are so stressful and definitely should get more pay..
They lockdown alot when they short staffed.
Is your son there just as a transition to another place? I am really trying to figure this site out but it looks very supportive. I can tell you "don't worry". ... But your mom of course you will. They are lockdown for their safety as well as punishment. Feel free to private message me. It will be good to know someone else with a loved one there.
Thanks.

Hi,

While I dont know anything specific about VA prisons, I know about how CA works.
Lockdowns are quite unfortunate for everyone.
They can be for just about any reason.
Illness they want to contain
Short staff
Contraband search
Fights


those are a few I can think of.
Sometimes lock downs can mean they are confined to their bunks, or cells (depending on how the yard is set up) and even being cell fed.
Sometimes lockdowns will only be on one yard. Sometimes its no phone calls.
Visits are cancelled.
Hope that explains it a bit.

They let guys out 12 cells at a time to use the phone and go to the koisk. My husband told me they talked about being locked down for 30 days!!!!! I don't know if they are sticking to that. I haven't heard from him since and that was Wednesday I believe.

I did learn something violent occurred (I don't know details) and they are having quarterly mandatory lockdown. Could be a "long" time. I have no idea what is considered long. they are allowing visitation, which really surprises me.

Thank you all for replying! I finally did hear from my LO and he said something similar about something happening and them going on lockdown. My LO was transferred there in March along with his entire Pod, and there have been numerous lockdowns already. He said they are pretty common there, as someone already mentioned, because they are short on staff and any time something happens.

I know you are all worried, I know because I am so worried too! If you want to PM me I'm here and it would be good to connect with someone who has a LO there too. Hang in there and be strong for them! They serve their time in there, and we serve ours out here worrying, LOL!

Peace and love friends. Sending you so much peace and love.
Sunny

Yes I’ve heard a couple of incidents happened and the lockdown is gonna be a month but I believe it’s only one more week left of it. The emails for me and my guy are slow and sometimes not even sending to each other but I blame the lockdown. I’ve talked to him on the phone a couple times since the lockdown and it’s definitely great to hear his voice. Hang in their y’all the lockdown will be down and over with before we know it.
