Questions about a Lockdown (how long can they stay locked down?)
does anyone know how long they can keep a prison on lockdown?? my boyfriend was supposed to call thursday night (he never misses when hes supposed to call) and never heard from him.. havent heard a word all weekend, and he didnt call his mom for mothers day. i'm starting to get worried. i'm thinking maybe they have the prison on lockdown but its 4 days already. can they keep them on lockdown that long? hes at wagner youth facility in bordentown. has anyone heard anyhting going on there??? please help!! hate being worried!
Theyve been known to keep facilities on lockdown for weeks...especially if a staff member was hurt by an inmate. when mines was in bordentown they had alot of phone issues where the payphones wouldnt work for days.
My son is in Wagner & we visited this weekend....didnt appear that anything was goin on. Also received phone calls this weekend. Maybe the phones on his tier are not working. I know how worried you must be. Hope you hear from him soon.
