Default Tucson Whetstone on Lockdown

There has been a rash of overdoses at Whetstone. At least 6 went out by ambulance this past week. Some required CPR, but all were still alive when the ambulances left. Fentanyl overdoses.

They have been on lockdown for over a week and it is expected to continue into this coming week. They were allowed out for an hour of rec on Saturday, when my loved one called.

The unit is still open for visitation.

Default Santa Rita, are they on lockdown?

My son has attempted to call but the calls are not coming thru. Is there something going on there also. Anyone else having issues with the calls connecting? He has attempted to call at at unusual times, not our normal times that we talk.
Before someone asks if there is money on the phone, yes there is. Haven’t been able to talk for two days. We usually talk daily.

There may be a problem with his voiceprint. He should talk to his CO3 if it is still a problem.

The lockdown ended earlier this week.

They are on lockdown again. Eight overdoses last week. Visitation is still happening.

The irony of how many inmates are in for crimes based on drug usage, yet, how easily drugs are obtainable in prison . . .
