Default Is FCI McKean on lockdown?

Is FCI McKean on lockdown? I've tried calling, but phone has had busy signal.
Anyone know what's going on there?

I am wondering the same.... I haven't heard from my husband who is at the satellite camp since yesterday morning at 8am. He is out of phone minutes until tomorrow so he can't call anyway which he usually will if they are in lockdown, but the email is in a different building and he can't get there if they are. It a MLK day as well so that may affect them answering the phones there. If I hear anything, I will replay again.

Not sure if you talked to your loved one yet, but apparently they have been without power but everything is back on now. Hallelujah! 👍

They are still having issues with the power. I did hear from my husband early this morning....They go on lockdown each time the power is out or being worked on.....My husband sent me a CORRLINKS message about 9am. Before today it had been since Friday since I heard from him

Yeah I had called up there and they said there isn’t any issues BUT the lady who picked up is quick to respond and rude. I know there has been issues off and on. I got a call at 630am and that was it. Which is unlike him, we talk on corrljnks throughout the day. I’ve had no replies.

Yeah, that's because she's tired of fielding all the calls asking what's going on...It's something wrong and they known Iitthey don't want us to know. We know our loved ones and when we are used to one way we know when It change that something is going on

Do you know if they are on lockdown now? Have you spoke to your husband?

The visitation is cancelled until further notice flag is on the bop McKean web page, which usually means the entire prison is on lockdown.

Hey guys. Seems like they're on lockdown again since Wednesday. The website says visitation has been suspended until further notice. I am a little new to this. How long does this usually take? And does anyone know why this is going on right now?

It's impossible to predict the length of lockdowns. It is always the decision of the warden when to start, and when to stop lockdowns.
