A regular lockdown is scheduled every quarter for levels 2-5 in Virginia. They are expected lockdowns. Severe lockdowns are when something at the specific prison happens...major fights (riot), weapons, etc. It depends on the situation and the prison itself. At August (VA) we just came off of a normal lockdown and then they found cellphones, drugs, etc. on certain inmates so they locked us down again and brought in the Strike Force to seriously shake the buildings down. They can also last longer but again, it depends...
