Welcome to Prison Talk. No air conditioning in the Low's housing units, but when I was there the commissary's larger plug-in (not battery) fan made a big difference. The chapel and the library are both air conditioned. Petersburg Medium is newer, and the residence buildings there are air conditioned.

There are a few really nasty dormitory housing assignments, Lee and Richmond halls. I was accepted into the 18 month residential "Life Connections Program", one of W's faith based release preparation programs (accessed through the Chaplain's office) which was a good way to spend that portion of my sentence. Much better housing in the LCP building and a few extra program benefits too. A new class every 6 months. The bop hasn't yet decided which programs will offer additional community corrections (half way house or home confinement) time, under the First Step Act, but there are so few programs left in the bop system, my guess is that LCP will be one of them.

The low is a very old prison, but when I was there for over 3 years, the staff was about the best one I encountered.

My fiancé has been at the camp in Petersburg for a year now. He was enjoying it. Said that it is very laid back. In the last very months tho they have shut down a major portion of the unit (apparently due to finding black mold) He tells me that is where a lot of the programs were at. Due to that now there is very little to do. Also in the last two months their AC has went completely out! He says that they are all very miserable and hot. I also know that they have had power outages that have been lasting a few days at a time. When this happens there is no communication. (Visits, calls, or CorrLinks.) guards have been basically keeping them on lockdown. = ( There has never been CorrLinks video calling there.

I didn't know that the camp was air conditioned, the FCI Low is not. It was always miserable and hot during the Virginia Summers, so he has a legitimate complaint.
