Hello Everyone,
Can anyone tell me what the current conditions are at East Moline Correctional. Do they still call it Sweet Moline? My L/O was just told that his transfer from Dixon to East Moline was approved at the facility level and has now been sent to Springfield for approval and I was just curious about conditions. I don't think it will be approved, but you can never tell with IDOC. Also I did read most of the East Moline board and I know he will not be able to take clothing, but does anyone know if he will be able to take his TV, fan and hotpot with him?

My husband has been there since October and he was told that after the escape in early October they put in more restrictions. So the inmates that were there before the escape said it was a good place but after the escape it is just like every place else. I know they don't have very many classes to offer and it seems like some staff keep quitting and they don't get in a hurry to replace them. I'm sure like every place else the food sucks. He hasn't had trouble with anyone there. Some guards are nice and some aren't. I don't know about if he would be able to take anything with him, you might ask his counselor. If you have any more questions I'd be happy to answer!
