Ask the Inmate
Hi! I was wondering, what "Facility shakedown" is? Is it as the same as a lockdown ?. Thank you !
A facility shakedown is where the inmates are sequestered in an area for hours while the guards go through the facility, cell by cell, room by room, searching for contraband. They will turn beds upside down, they go into the ceiling where there is access, they check the kitchen, bathrooms, chapel... everywhere. After they have finished, the collection of contraband is displayed in some form to show the inmates that they will eventually find everything. If they can tie anything that they found to an inmate, then that inmate will be disciplined.
A lockdown is when all of the inmates are restricted to their bunks for a period of time. A lockdown could be the method of sequestering them during the search but only for areas outside of the living quarters.
I will be visiting an inmate at Loudoun County Detention Center. Will i be able to touch him? Will it be across a glass window? A screen? What can i bring him? What can i tell him about what to expect?
Visitation for inmates is based on last name:
- Inmates with last names beginning with A through G may be visited on:
- Tuesdays from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm
- Saturdays from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm
- Inmates with last names beginning with H through Q may be visited on:
- Wednesdays from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm
- Sundays from 9:00 am to 11:00 am
- Inmates with last names beginning with R through Z may be visited on:
- Thursdays from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm
- Sundays from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm
The visits are not through a glass window, you can only bring change to buy food and drinks from the vending machine. Have him review his Inmate Handbook, as all of the rules and expectations are covered.
Only three visitors per visit and no one may visit under the age of 18 unless accompanied by a parent or guardian and provide proof of such. Visitors must be on the inmates’ visitation list and those visitors between the ages of 15 and 18 will count as towards the total number of visitors allowed on the list.
Visitors must present a picture Identification Card. Those without an I.D. will be denied visitation. All visitors are subject to search.
