My son just got transferred to Danville today.  I don't know anything about that facility and not much about the prison system in general. Can anyone give me some info about Danville?

Danville is a decent prison. A fair amount of jobs and classes/programs are available. It seems pretty laidback, though you will always find a few troublesome inmates and/or officers.Of the 3 medium security prisons I have visited, it has the best atmosphere.  Mail is a bit on the slow side.

Visits are for 4 hours, unless it gets busy and then they are shortened so that everyone gets a turn. You will need 2 forms of ID, one of which must have a photo, for your first visit. Your address must be correct. Lockers for your coat, purse, etc. are 50 cents. A vending card costs $5, and you can add up to $50.

There are several average priced hotels a few minutes away from the prison, which is nice so that you don't have to worry about getting lost in an unfamiliar town.
