The newly purchased (from the State of IL) bop ADMAX penitentiary in Thomson, Illinois, which will double the capacity of the current Florence, Colorado Supermax, is scheduled to reopen later in 2017. Here's a link to a recent Correctional News article by US Senator Dick Durban about it.

As of now, the bop web page only shows an A&O Handbook (inmate rules) for the satellite camp, not the ADMAX, so if you are being sent to the camp, you will probably be involved in opening the main penitentiary later this year.

ADMAX prisons have the most oppressive conditions anywhere, and there has been talk about closing the notorious CIA prison in Guantanamo Cuba and transferring everyone to Thomson once it opens.

We just received a letter from the Marshalls that Thomson is our designation as well. It seems like the BOP may be pushing inmates to the satellite camp there in preparation to open up the main supermax facility by the end of 2017. Or the BOP is hiring more employees there and wants to be economical.

From what we can tell, inmates at Thomson are only minimum security camp inmates and the supermax is not yet accepting inmates.

Anyone have any info on SCP Thomson besides what is available on the bop website?


* Is the camp under controlled movement? The bop booklet says it is but, as we all know, the booklets are sometimes wrong.

* Is there a gym? If so, what machines or weights do they have?

* Is there a library? What is it like?

* What, if any, leisure or craft activities are available?

* What work jobs are available?

* What is the food like?
