Phone Calls at Young Medical Complex
Inmates are allowed one phone call every 90 days if their status allows. Calls are for 5 minutes and are carried out on a speaker phone so the guard can listen in.
Pending Services: TDCJ now has new phone system/services/privileges that are currently pending implementation in order to comply with recently passed legislation. The contract for the work is to be awarded by September 1, 2008, though we have no idea when the actual work to install the systems will begin on each unit. The cost of the calls is supposed to be similar to that of calls from most county jails and the calls will be limited to 120 minutes/month as an extended privilege to the inmate.
