You can read some of the posts on this board and also go to our Visiting Illinois Prisons Board here:

http://www.illinoisprisontalk.org/index.php?topic=28855.0

and you can read information on visiting.  Also on that board, if you go to the top of the page and in the search box type in East Moline, all the other topics about visiting there will come up.  We have some members that have shared alot of information in those topics.

Does anyone know of the happenings at the East Moline Correctional Center?  My 18 year old nephew is currently in Vandalia but that is 7 hours one way for me to drive for a visit.  So I asked him to look into a transfer to East Moline and he said that he only hears bad stuff about that prison.  Like a lot of fighting and stealing (expected anywhere I would imagine) and lock downs, bad beds, commisary days getting changed etc.  So he's pretty skeptical about going there I'm really hoping to change his mind for a 2 1/2 hour drive instead but I don't want him going to EMCC if it is in fact worse than the one that he is in...So if someone can please let me know I would greatly appreciate it! Thank you

East Moline is one of the prisons that we hear very little about, hardly ever on LD.  Lot's of rumors go around all the time about each prison, don't believe everything you hear.

My husband was transferred from Stateville last Thursday 2-26-15 to East Moline.  Does anyone have experience with East Moline and how long it usually took for calls and or visits?  Have not heard from my Hubby is almost 3 weeks and was hoping it would be soon. 
Thank you!

My l/o is at East Moline.  His visitor's list was approved after about 2 weeks or so.  He wrote and told me it was approved.  Was not able to call for almost a month.  Hope you don't have to wait as long.
