Default Calico Rock (North Central) Race Ratios of inmates, improved reputation?

Does anyone currently have any loved ones assigned here that can provide feedback? Years ago, this facility had a reputation to have high racial tensions, high number of white gang members and the very few blacks that ended up there were "trouble makers" from other prisons and supposedly sent there to have less prominence. Also, many sex offenders are sent there for additional protection..??? Rumors or truth, I dont know... Does this mean the facility is more stringent in the monitoring practices of the inmate population in comparison to other larger facilities. According to the DOC inmate search today the stats are:

NCU is small (579 inmates) of which 116 are black (20%) whereas 436 are white (75%) other races would total the remaining 5%. These numbers show that today there is still huge racial unbalanced ratios compared to the other facilities. Does anyone know the policy & procedure of how assignment is determined at NCU? I also see that there are 155 sex offenders out of 579 , ( roughly 27%). This appears to be a high percentage in relation to a small facility as well.

Has there been improvements in the administration issues that gave NCU a bad reputation back in 2006-07 that received so much public attention? How much has the practices and racial tensions changed since then? Anyone who visits there or has family there can you give some insight ?

Thanks

It is still very race profiled... In Boot Camp several of the DI's told us lots of stories about Calico... Two of the black males that didnt make it in Boot Camp because of behavior issues were sent there for that very reason. Hope this helps

The Warden at Calico Rock is very fair. He is one of the Best Wardens in the state.
