Default What does Closed Security Level mean?

My husband was transferred again today to Telfair SP, which I notice is a closed security prison. What does this mean?

my husband is at telfair also and i do not think the security level ever change at that prison because he has been closed security for a year and he never got into any trouble and his security level has not dropped.

Hey, there, glad to finally find someone who I can talk to about the prison my husband is at. How long has yours been there? I guess I am going to have to make the trip next weekend for visitation, tell me what to expect. We have an 18 month old baby, will he be able to hold him? Are they very strict?
Thanks........Christy

My children's father just got transferred to Telfair. I'm in Florida so I don't think there will be much visiting. I just want to learn the ropes as far as sending $. I wish I could email!!!
He called the other day and said there are no fans or AC. It was 95 degrees in his room at night. Poor thing.

Security reviews are supposed to be done every year. Sometimes the counselor will "forget" them...you have to stay on them to get them done!

Minimum - Medium - Close - Max - SuperMax. (Max was recently taken off the list the last couple of months). Close basically are people who were in Max and behaved well enough to be trusted to be among other inmates in general population or not violent enough to be Max but not trusted enough to go outside the institution like Medium security inmates. That is it in a nutshell.

My husband had a security reduction from medium to minimum not long after making it to his first camp... Probably about a year after he went to Jackson... Does that show in the pb's records? Does it reflect on their final parole decision once the TPM is here?

Supposedly it does, but honestly if there is just paperwork in front of p&P, how could they render such a life-altering decison? Our loved ones are so much more than a number and a file!

I agree... And I can't tell you how many people I come across that are totally surprised by the fact that they never go in front of the parole board... Every single person says, "But how do they know him and his character?..." I give them all the same simple, "exactly my point..." They don't... The inmates in Georgia are simply words and numbers on a piece of paper, nothing less and nothing more....

That is just so wrong. It is hard to believe that they have someone else's "life" in their hands and can basically flip a coin to decide their fate. It just seems like there should or could be a better way.

My husband was just sent to Telfair from a private prison after getting in a fight. Will he be safe there?
