No, they don't go on lock down very often. Usually the "once a year" thing. This time they are on lock down because a ranking officer got his nose broke and he got beat up by a couple of inmates. The Neal unit is a pretty good unit and I think your husband will agree after a short time. My husband has been on some pretty hard units and he says that time at the Neal is about as easy as it comes. If you ever have problems though contact the warden, he's a really nice man and he's fair too.

I got a letter today from my loved one at Neal. He says they are locked down because of a riot.

Okay, the unit is up and going with just a few locked down. My guy tells me that they are doing a lot reclassifications and sending a lot of the guys to other units. I wonder if other units are moving a lot of people around too?

I am sure there are other with much more knowledge than I on the matter, but to my knowledge, the only way to get him moved is a transfer hardship. I believe it has to be for medical reasons...his (maybe), yours...or someone who visits him. They are not going to transfer him because it's far away for you to visit. And someone please correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think those hardship transfers are so easy to come by.

My sister in law was a guard at the Neal/Clements Units, we live in Amarillo and I don't hear of anything much in the way of problems there.

It seems to be a pretty calm unit. I got a letter today saying that there was a fight in the chow hall resulting in everyone getting gassed, but it seemed to have been under control very quickly.

This is the information i got on the TDCJ website about Hardship transfers. Hope it helps.

Special consideration for transfer may be made when an offender’s family has medical problems limiting the ability to travel long distances. To apply for this special consideration you need to obtain a letter from the attending doctor stating the medical problems and how it impacts the ability to travel. This should be verifiable and preferably on the doctor’s letterhead. If the offender is in a privately operated state jail facility and is a state jail confinee, attach the doctor’s letter to your letter requesting a hardship transfer and mail it to the Correctional Institutions Division Director, P.O. Box 99, Huntsville, Texas, 77342. Although submitting a request does not guarantee the offender will be moved to a unit closer to the family, you can be assured that the agency will give careful consideration to the request.


In struggle & In strength,
Kristen

Since this thread was started back in January, I think it's safe to say this lock down has been lifted - so I'm going to close this thread.

Thanks for all the info!
