Question What is it like at Arkansas Valley? Is it becoming a "non-political" yard?

Hi!

Does anyone have a loved one at Arkansas Valley? My bf has heard that they're trying to make that facility a "non-political" yard and so far the news he's been hearing back has been positive. There's a possibility he might get moved there. Does anyone know what that facility is currently like?

Thanks

My husband was there for almost 10 years. He has said it was better than alot of the others but prison is prison. Not sure what you mean by "non-political" yard.

What do you mean by a non political yard? What would be the advantages or disadvantages of that?

Sorry for the delayed response! Non-political meaning no gang affiliations.

That's what I figured. They have moved out alot of shot callers the last few months from AV. I don't see how they can make any yard non-political with such a high # of affiliated gang members across DOC.
