FCI VICTORVILLE MEDIUM 2:
Went on lockdown on Saturday due a power outage the facility had. The next day the LD was lifted. However, I do know that they were also having trouble with the computer system due the power outage so if you havenít heard from your loved one that could be why. Hope this helps!!

I havent heard from mine in Medium 2 for a week and a half now. He normally would at least write a note if on lock down day 1. So, for whatever reason have heard nothing. Hopefully soon.

Welcome to Prison Talk and to the federal forums. The Victorville prison complex locks down more often than almost any other federal prison. Why, only the warden knows for sure.

Probably because the warden is a psycho! He most likely wakes in the morning thinking he "loves the smell of napalm in the morning" ..... that man runs his own version of Apocalypse Now! Sorry for the rant but that place is a nightmare!!!

Per my LO they are moving hundreds of prisoners from the Medium II to either the Medium I or USP. They are turning the Medium II into an immigration center and will begin moving those individuals into the prison starting tomorrow through the weekend. So visiting is cancelled and they will be on and off lock down during this transition.


I hope this helps

If I was unlucky enough to be in Victorville, a move almost anywhere else would be welcomed.

Well when I called the guy said yes but I was told they have now placed a fence around the complex and only letting one car in at a times... CRAZY! I donít want to waste 6 hours driving down and they donít have visiting. This is just too much.....

For second time in a month, inmate found dead at Victorville penitentiary
Posted Jun 26, 2018 at 11:47 AM

VICTORVILLE — In back-to-back months, an inmate has been found dead in his cell at the U.S. Penitentiary, a high-security facility within the Federal Correctional Complex.

Barry Keck, 56, was discovered unresponsive on June 19 by prison staff, according to Bureau of Prisons spokesperson Jess Pino.

“Staff immediately called for assistance and began lifesaving measures,” Pino said in a statement late Friday. “Emergency Medical Services (EMS) were requested, and EMS personnel arrived and continued lifesaving efforts.”

While I agree....almost anyplace is better than Victorville....(I think) there is only 1 other USP on the west coast All others are east coast! Due to $, work, and children...I would never be able to go back east to visit my loved one, and at least i'm close enough to VV to visit every few weeks
