Default Bellamy Creek Protective Custody

Does anyone have a loved one at Bellamy Creek in protective custody? If so, what does the program entail? I assume they are segregated but do they have regular privileges otherwise?

My son was in PC at another facility but I assume it's the same everywhere. They are in their cell 23 hours a day. No TV, no fan, no phone,no nothing. They can have mail. There is a special visiting schedule (you'll have to call the facility to find out what day it is and it's only for 30 minutes and it's behind a protective barrier). There are no regular privileges...it's segregation, any way you look at it. If he's in PC, they'll soon transfer him out of the facility...my son was in PC a month. It's not fair they get nothing while in PC but it's in the seg unit...and they are treated like everyone else who is in Seg. PC is not a program...it's segregation.

Protective custody and segregation are NOT the same. Segregation (the hole) is where a prisoner goes when they screw up and get in trouble. Protective custody is where a prisoner goes when they are either a high profile prisoner (ex-judge, ex-cop, ex-lawyer, big in the media, etc) and/or have a credible threat against their life.

Prisoners in PC are given the same programs and privileges as prisoners in the general population, they are just kept separate from everybody. They don't go to the chow hall to eat (they eat in their block), but they still get yard time and gym time and programs, just not at the same time as everybody else. If they have to go somewhere like the health center, they go with a CO. They don't go anywhere unescorted.

Default Protective Custody in Bellamy

Looking for up to date information regarding the protective custody program in Bellamy. Is this an actual program there? It's listed as such. Can't find anything online with more details.

Thanks for any help you can provide.
