I had a camera (disposable) taken from me by Menard staff several years ago as well. I do have some recent pictures however, if you're interested, PM me.

i had that experience also with photos. There are some that are from documentaries, news stories, etc that I have seen. Did you look through all the photos here? I thought there were some of Menard. It reminds me of Stillwater here in Mn, very old, like Stateville.

Take care, there are usually signs outside saying photography not allowed. Hate to see you get into trouble.

I am new here. I need help, my adopted son is in Menard Special Unit. He is class 3. I am trying to get infor of what exactly I need to do and what to expect for visitation. Do I have to wait for him to put me on a visitation list or do I apply? What about mail? What can I send him? I am new to the prison experience and I am very upset about this whole situation.
They told him if he took a plea then he would be going to minimum security prison and then they send him here! This is maximum security and I know it said medium security or something like that, I am just confused and truly need help. Thank you in advance.
Also why am I unable to access the pictures of the prison?

Your son is in the Menard medium security prison, which is up the hill from the maximum facility.

Here's what the IDOC site says about visiting times:

Medium Security Unit
8:00am-6:30pm
-- Visits are limited to 1 1/2 hour
-- only one visit allowed per day

You have to wait for him to put you on his visiting list, and get it accepted, before you can visit.

I'll PM you with other info.

Rose.

I took some pics of Robinson last Saturday, if anyone wants to see pm me. It is pics of the outside: the yard, the prison main building, and the entrance. I had to be fast so the guards wouldn't see! : )

Anyone have a picture of the Marion Illinois FPC - My brother is going there in one week, our family is scared. There is little information and I have no idea what the place looks like. Thank you so much.

How old is that picture of the cell anyway? Cause now the TV casings are clear (so they can't hide contraband).... instead of black.
