Default Quarterly Check / lockdown?

Hi my man has been in Whetstone for a little over a month. He is talking about a quarterly check up where they lock them down and have to search A-C bedding areas. He says they have to strip naked so the cops can check him and they have to look through and check if they donít have anything they arenít suppose to in there bunk. How long does this usually take?

The CO answer would probably be "as long as it takes" lol

Hopefully someone has a better answer for you but I'm guessing there is not really a time frame on these things

It usually takes 3-4 days but it can be shorter or longer. Just depends on what they find and if there's any problems. If an inmate gets in trouble for contraband and tells the COs who he got it from then they can go back and re-search.

Everywhere I have been this usually takes 4 days or so - they'll take the run to the chow hall for about half a day and tear the place up - controlled movement the rest of the time - not a big deal - just boring for the inmates - least it was for me

A Quareterly search entails sniffing dogs for drugs, housing area searches, cell phone scanners and generally a all day event. Sometimes you get lucky with a CO and they dont destroy your house.
They generally include COIIIs with the search who have your Property Hard file on hand to check for
electronics that you have not purchased in the store (Under your name).

Anything they take they give you a property slip where you can go up to property afterwards and contest the taking of your stuff.

The longest I had was a 2 day search. They found drugs in the Microwave in the common room.
