Default He was moved to Pinckneyville need info

My husband was just moved to Pinckneyville. He was moved because he is in seg but I guess that is where he will be for a few years (once he gets out of seg). I looked at the Pinckneyville thread but there wasn't really anything in there. Has anyone been to Pinckneyville to visit or talked with anyone? I would really like to find out more about it and I know that we all have info on these places just from visiting. And I so hate getting used to a new place with all the new rules and different staff.

My man is in Pinckneyville. Really I think the only information I can help you with is the visiting rules. When you do go and visit, make sure you have two photo id's with you. You won't be able to visit if you don't. I have seen some folks learn that the hard way. Visits are only for 4 hours. Folks that are in Seg. only get a 2 hour visit. The C.O.'s I have dealt with are pretty cool, especially Miss Stoops. Ummmmm...they don't take pictures in there anymore either. That is all I can think of at the moment. I hope this info helps. If you have anymore questions, feel free to ask me!

Hello to both:
My fiancee is in pinckneyville also. The officers are nice there. I have been there twice it is a long ride from chicago with the kids 5 and 1/2 hours. Yes it just like Miss A said you do need your 2 id's because the officers do get fiesty when you give excuses. THe visits are nice big room, I mean its decent compare to other places.

Default Photo ID's

How do you have 2 photo ID's? I know you have a driver's license but what else do you have with a photo on it?
Or will an insurance card or something else without a picture work too?

Hello. I know it's been a while since someone's posted on here. I just want to know how Pickneyville is. What is the atmosphere like in there? Do I need to be worried about my boyfriend's safety?

Default Hello:

I'm in the same boat as yourself. My brother is in Pinckneyville but in their Seg unit. He is going to be released from Seg soon but had some concerns regarding the general population of Pinckneyville Corrections. Does anyone have any information or gossip that has been said regarding the atmosphere there? When I visited him there it seem like a good place with no walls but a fence surrounding it. But he mentioned some things to me and I could sense his concern for safety.

The calls are thirty minutes, you can make as many as you want but they are thirty minutes at a time and it's usually everyday as long as they are in the day room which they should lock up at around 8 pm so don't expect calls after then. If he goes to reception there for any reason forexample if he has to be shipped out for court or transfer the calls are i believe the calls are tuesday and sunday and then thursday and saturday but you only get calls on one of the sequences. Days may be different becasue I forgot but I know for sure it goes in a two day sequence.
