Prison Pulse Reports

These on-the-ground reports by incarcerated people provide family members, advocates, public defenders and others with short, specific reports on what’s going on in federal prisons. For definitions of “lingo” used, see our Prison Terms Glossary.

While we do our best to gather relevant details, we cannot corroborate all of these reports with multiple sources. Also note that we do not publish identities of prisoners, facility staff, etc., but can provide this detail if warranted, upon request.
