East Mo.. is known to the inmates as Sweet Mo.. the joint actually looks more like a college campus than a prison. There's only one fence surrounding it, once you're checked in you actually walk about two blocks to the visiting room, which is never locked. The windows in the men's room have windows, much like you have at home and flowered curtains on them. The first time I visited my ex there, it totally blew me away. The staff is very laid back & friendly.. but you have to keep in mind.. no inmate there has more than fours years left and no one is trying to be transferred out, so the environment is very peaceful. I had the warden tell me once they couldn't throw guys over the fence, they'd all be trying to come back in, just to do their time & leave. The men have free movement from first count to sundown, some of the building are air conditioned and a couple have pool tables. Not a bad place to be if you have to do time!!

You said in your post that no inmate has >4 years.  Is this a rule?  I thought the rule for Minimum was less than 7 years left.

Hey everyone...

My guy has 11 months left to serve, and is interested in a work release program. He said his current facility (Graham) is bad with those, and wants to be transfered to East Moline. Does anyone have any info/stories/comments about the place? I've looked it up on the IL DOC website and read the bio there, but thats pretty helpless.

Thanks!

I drive  7 hours each way so I KNOW how important it is to be able to just drive  3 hours!  It makes it possible to visit much more often.  Congrats!  I hope he likes it better there.  Hey once he's transferred there,  will you tell me if the rumors that they have curtains on the windows there are true?

Thanks for the kind words jewels, forevermah & dancer and yes dancer, I will let you know about the curtain situation when I find out. :) I haven't gotten any responses yet to my questions. I really would like to know how it is there for visits. Are weekends super busy? Would I be better of going on a weekday? How many visits are they allowed per month there? I hope to hear soon from someone who knows all about East Moline. Thanks to anyone who can help me.

I'm so happy for you, blsgrl !!  That drive is going to seem like nothing compared to what you had been doing !   .>>

Did you see the section of the forum called "Individual Prison Profiles" ?  There's a thread there about East Moline, but there aren't a lot of posts there. You might have to be the person to fill in all of the details.  :-)

You got that right downtown... the drive is gonna seem like an hour. I love it!!! Plus, I won't have anymore overnight trips, so no staying in a hotel for the weekend and I can go to see him a lot more often. This rocks!! And, even more to be happy about... when I pick him up in 10 months and 21 days, we will only have to drive 3 hours home instead of 7!! I'm so excited!! We are hoping it will happen relatively soonbut since it's a popular place, there's a wait for a bed. Either way, he's going soon.

I looked last night at East Moline and I see it is a level 6,  a minimum security prison.   I think you could call there and ask how long visits are,  how many days a week,  etc.  Your guy will ask others and have some idea about visiting room rules.  Other wise  be real careful about your dress, and touching at the table,  and look around the visit room.

Yes dancer, I am used to the minimum places, as my husband is currently at a minimum facility. He's at Vienna right now and for the most part it is totally laid back.... most of the co's are really cool. I guess what I really wanted to find out is how crowded it is on weekends. I assume since it is closer to the Chicago area, it will be pretty crowded. If that is the case, I will visit on weekdays.I know he has to wait for a bed to open up and he says a few guys at his place have been waiting a while. Also, does anyone know how many visits permonth are allowed at East Moline.. I know it differs from place to place. I guess I can call there, but I thought maybe someone here would know. I would appreciate any info from anyone.

blsgirl, when you go there for the first time and after you find out more information on East Moline, information that we may not already have,  could you possibly post this information on our East Moline Profile page here?

http://xsorbit30.com/users5/illinoisprisontalk/index.php?topic=5609.0

We always appreciate members sharing.

Thanks, Mah

Hey everyone!

Well, I am so happy because I finally got to see my husband yesterday after 8 1/2 long months. He's now at East Moline after waiting 6 months to be transferred. Anyway, our visit was awesome... it was so great to see him, touch him, kiss him.... I was and still am on cloud 9!!!

Okay, East Moline is a great facility. My husband says, "if you have to do time, this is the place to do it". The facility is newer and much nicer. There is painted drywall instead of bricks. It is way cleaner... no cockroaches! There are more sinks, toilets, phones. The cells and dayroom are much bigger. The commisary list is huge... they have things like chicken breasts, ice cream, many choices of pop, candies, etc. There's no limit on what you can buy at each store. There is a lot of free movement. Inmates are able to keep their personal things out on their shelves in their rooms instead of shoving everything they own into their box. After being there for six months, if an inmate hasn't gotten any tickets, he can pretty much choose where he wants to be housed. There is an honor house which is supposed to be really nice... that's where the curtains are on the windows!! Phones are on from 8am-10:30pm.

When the inmate gets there, there is no receiving.... he goes right to his assigned cell. There is no waiting for the phone list.... my husband called me the next day. His visit list only took 5 days to get approved. He got a decent job which is good for him.

As for visitation... it's fine. The facility doesn't even look like a prison from the outside.... reminds me of a monestery. It's actually pretty neat looking. The visit room is large and has 4 food machines, a large drink machine and a coffee machine. They have the debit card system there and there is no limit on what you can spend. There are regular tables and chairs which are fairly comfortable.

Anyway, all in all for what it is, it's a great place. It only took me 2 1/2 hours to get there... it's a straight shot down I88. I had been use to driving 7 hours one way to see him, so this was quite nice. I88 is a good road to travel... not a lot of traffic and hardly any semi trucks.... I hate driving next to semi trucks! Of course there was bad fog yesterday, but even with that, it was all okay.

So, there you have it. If anyone has any questions about East Moline, please let me know. I am just so happy I got to see my husband. We had a great visit which was long overdue. I'm just glowing with happiness today!!  .>>

Only 4 months and 30 days and I'll be bringing him home!!

Take care everyone.

blsgrl
