Default Is Beto Unit in TX going on lockdown?

My husband is at Beto and he is being told or is hearing they are going on their lock-down next week. Anyone else hearing similar from their LO there? I will miss our calls of course but lately he's been sending some beautifully written letters. So at least I'll have that. It is what it is.

My LO is at Coffield and he said they were on lockdown last weekend and I think they still are so it wouldn’t surprise me if Beto would too.

They tried going on lockdown this past week, but Huntsville called it off because Gurney had already started lockdown earlier that day and they often share staffing during lockdown. Gurney usually takes about a week, so Beto is expecting it early next week.......but, of course, that is not a definite and could easily change. You can always call the unit and ask. They won’t tell you plans, only status at that time.

Yea my husband said the same thing with exception that their rumor going around is that Beto will not lockdown until June. Which makes sense if the other unit just started theirs, plus the new warden etc. However as you know, every rumor started from someone that might know lol. I got calls as soon as they weren't racked up anymore. Que sera sera ..... thanks for info ...

What is this about a new warden? Isn't it still Norris Jackson?

Rumor is he was training his daughter to take over. That was back in March before my LO got transferred. It still says Norris on the website.

Did Beto ever have their lockdown for first half of the year? My significant other just got there. Is Beto still a "gladiator unit" with a lot of fights? How is the staff? Treatment of inmates?
