    This is a sad facility they do what ever they want if this is a contracted facility with TDCJ then TDCJ need to un contract with them, the prisoners barley get to go to wreck, they do store when ever they want nothing is on schedule, The unit Parole officer waits to the last minute to visit inmates, then put together a sloppy packet to send up to board. This is the worst place for your family member to go.
