Default Federal Prison Camps Western Region

Does anyone know where the Federal Prison Camps are in the Western Region? Not the boot camps.The only one I see listed is Nellis, perhaps because it is a stand alone camp.

Have you tried to view the bop directory at

www.bop.gov

You can choose to view by region.

Mr. Kieffer, as far as I know, the only camp in Lompoc is the boot camp. The camp there was converted to a low FCI a few years back. If I am mistaken, please advise. Thanks.

You are correct, but they have a camp as well - it actually opened before the ICC. I have several clients there.

Howard, have you been to the FPC at Lompoc? Can you shed some light on the conditions and what's available there for the inmates?

Yes, I have several clients there and have been there many times, including within the last few weeks.

Quite a few of the buildings are portable types, like you see at schools. Most of the housing units, education buildings and offices are of this type of construction. There is a "basic" inmate law library, with other materials available from the main institution.

Somewhat limited recreation facilities. Inmates work on and off the compound.

the visiting room includes an outside area with a small playground and a few tables.

The town of Lompoc has several motels that accomodate visitors. The rates are very reasonable. A car is necessary because of the distance from lodging to the facility.

Sounds like Lompoc camp kind of sucks. I hope I can go to Nellis instead. There is supposed to be more to do there.

My clients, for the most part, are happy with Lompoc.

Nellis, based upon my experience, has always had some additional (and private) designation criteria. Depending upon various factors and bed space, campers from California are sometimes sent there. They do have RDAP. However, if you've been in the military or are over 40, it is unlikely to get designated there.

If you are interested in attempting to influence the designation decision, the "window" is very small.

Re: About Atwater camp
I go to visit at Atwater camp every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. The camp is really easy, it's like a country club. It is air conditioned in the summer and heated in the winter. There are basketball courts, baseball diamond, volleyball, walking trackand a indoor gym. The sleeping area is like a big open hall with bunk beds. There are no cells with bars and no wired fences. Everything is wide open for you to roam around freely.
Visiting hours are from 8-3 Friday - Sunday and you may visit for the whole 7 hours if you like. The facility is new, it opened in 2001. The camp is built for 190 inmates and there are currently around 123 inmates there. Everyone there is really nice. The food is much better at the camp than at regular prisons and you could eat as much as you like as you serve yourself. You do have to have a job while you're there. The job isn't really hard work or anything, you just work around 3-4 hours each day.
There are also TV's all around for your entertainment, a library, classrooms and 6 Telephone Kiosks. You are allowed to talk 300 minutes a month, (400 minutes in November and December) it's up to you how you want to utilize your minutes.
Hope this info helps!

Welcome to PTO Calfed!

It sounds as if Atwater camp isn't so bad from whats been posted above.

I'm just wondering why after 2 years Atwater isnt even close to capacity? Does anyone know of any other camp not overcrowded? How long will it take for that to happen here?

What makes you believe that the camp at Atwater, CA isn't "even close to capacity?" Camps come in all sizes and shapes.

Howard...when we first went throught the sentencing stages...the attorney had given us a list of all the BOP locations to research. on the list...much like what we find online today...it also listed the capacity and current population.

Is the capacity...what the location is built to hold...listed anywhere today for all the locations?

That list - the one that included capacity numbers - is obsolete. It was based upon ACA standards that changed at least 4 years ago. Facilities are no longer raeted for certain capacities by ACA. There are many reasons for this, including the fact that many of the newer facilities are "reconfigurable."

The "new" standards basically presuppose that a facility is not overcrowded if each inmate has a bed. Things like square-footage, applicable to jails have been deemed inapplicable to prisons - again for various reasons.

Howard, the reason I said it isnt close to capacity, is because of the post on this thread that states Atwater was built for 190

Everyone of my clients have different criteria and priorities. Ican only provide guidance in this type of "choice" when I am familar with both.

BTW - There is no real "choice" as even a Judicial recommendation is just that, a recommendation. The ultimate decision is up to the Bureau.

Onbce sentenced, the window of time in which there is even the possibility of influencing designation, is very small.

Again, everyone has different criteria and priorities. I could only provide guidance in this type of "choice" when I am familar with both. If I had to pick today - I suppose I'd pick Lompoc - again because - knowing what I know - it would meet my needs and priorities in the best way possible.
