What kind of info are you looking for?  For the inmate or people visiting?

Lincoln is a pretty good place.  Minimum, dorm style facility.  Alot of work and class opportunities.  It is air-conditioned in the summer.

They get 7 visits a month.  3 visitors per visit unless you get approval for more.  Visits are 4 hours long (2 hours if over crowding happens).  The visiting room if pretty nice with a play area and toys for kids.  Most of the staff is pretty nice.  Dress appropriately.  The only jewelry allowed is earrings (smaller than a dime).  Wedding rings and a watch.  No lockers, you have to leave everything except your identification and vending card in your car.  The vending card costs $5 and you will need a $5 bill to purchase it and then get a credit of $3.  The vending machines themselves are a little pricey in my opinion.  $6 for a burger or hot sandwich.  They have a coffee machine and 3 soda machines. 

Let me know if I can answer anything else for you.
