    @ X sergeant…I may not be typical but I had my visitations suspended indefinitely for the “suspicion” of drug residue on my clothes. They say the dogs picked up the scent on my clothes. Strip searched…nothing, vehicle search…nothing
    I asked if they could bring the dogs out and let them go through my vehicle…no. Received a letter saying I was suspended indefinitely after 10 years of visiting. Warden said call him in a year and he would reinstate. Called him and he said he never said that. Forget calling Tallahassee…they let the prison know and the inmate pays for it in blood.

    What they need to do is arrest them and prosecute them to the fullest extent of the law. When I worked at century c.i. we caught then trying to pass phones spice and other contraband, and all that would happen was inmate goes to confinement visit terminated for six months to a year. They need to have dogs searching the vehicle when they arrive.
