Ask the inmate answer
Lockdown means that the compound is essentially "locked-down" from normal operations. There are no visits, no phone privileges, no commissary. Just 24/7; locked in their cells. It becomes a stressful environment for the days, weeks or sometimes months of "punishment" until it is lifted. Inmates do still receive mail.
