George W. Hill Correctional Facility


Here is a picture of Chadwick's current residence. It's the George W. Hill Correctional Facility, in Thornton, PA. Operated by a contractor for profit, their website says that prisoners are to be held there for a maximum of "1 day less then 5 years." Why then, has Chadwick been there for 13 years? Did he fall through a crack in the floor?

The Delaware County, Pennsylvania website say's that the prison "Received an Excellent rating from the Pennsylvania Department of Corrections." However, folks who have actually tried to visit the prison complain about the two to three hour wait just to get in and the abusive guards that aggressively pat you down before your visit.

MY SON IS INCARCERATED AT THE JAIL AND EVERY WEEK I GO TO VISIT. THIS IS A HORRIBLE PROCESS AND VERY UNORGANIZED ON THE JAILS PART. IF VISITS ARE TO START AT 7 THEN THEY SHOULD START THE PROCESS OUT FRONT SO AS TO BE FINISHED BY 6:45 SO THAT EVERYONE HAS A CHANCE TO VISIT. THE GUARDS ARE RUDE AND TREAT THE VISITORS AS THOUGH THEY ARE SCUM. THE GUARDS NEED TO REALIZE HOW HARD THIS PROCESS IS FOR THOSE OF US WHO ARE VISITING AND THAT WE DEFINITELY DON'T NEED TO DEAL WITH THEIR IGNORANCE. MAYBE THEY NEED TO JUST CLEAN HOUSE AND HIRE ALL NEW EMPLOYEES AND START FROM SCRATCH. MY 3 YR OLD GRANDSON HAS BETTER MANNERS.

AS FOR SOME OF THE PREVIOUS INMATES WHO ARE NOW VISITING, ONE IN PARTICULAR THAT WEARS A GREY T-SHIRT, TAKE YOUR SPOT IN LINE JUST LIKE EVERYONE ELSE DOES.

i dont like the n word but on three or four previous visits the guards there most not all are definitly a-holes, all black as well. the wait is ridiculous, last time i was there i waited two hours and was told I couldnt go in b/c I had a small rip in my jeans above the knee the size of a half dollar. the black fat female guard was laughing at me and ridiculing me in front of other visitors when I asked to talk to a supervisor. they are by far extremely unprofessional and obviously on power trips..today I tried to call the facility to find out what telephone system they use that I can put money into so my son wont have to call me collect, they dont even bother to anwser the main switchboard. 5 times I tried, same result. no answer!! can you imagine?? no voicemail either. I also learned they keep 50 percent of all inmates money for calls and maybe even commissary for "administrative fees"...something reeks here. time for a clean sweep of this facility because its total bullshit.

I would like to say that this correctional facility is very unorganizied and unprofessional. Everytime I call just to ask a simple question I either can not get through to someone or I get a very rude person. I understand that is a correctional facility but the inmates are still human beings and so are the people that call there. I also think it is very unfair to take 50% of the inmates money for housing fees like they asked to be in there. Also, I sent my boyfriend a $40 money that was mysteriously "lost" and called the facility numerous times to see what could be done about this situation because now not only am I out of $40 bucks my boyfriend has two suffer do to the lack of supervison and concern on the facility part. I have been told to put a stop payment on the money which if they had sense would know you can't put a stop payment on a money order. Instead of having guards watch the inmates and visitors they need to be watching the employees.

There is a $100 processing fee for housing at this facilty. A lot of prisons are beginning to do this nowdays. The 50% of the guys money which is taken, is done until the $100 is paid off, then they receive all moneies sent to them. A number of facilities which charge a processing fee take 100% of the money until it is paid. GWHCF only takes half so that inmates can still get their commissary, etc.. until their debt is paid...

You most certinly can put a stop payment on a money order. If you saved the receipt the instruction are usually on the back of it. Same as a check though, they do chareg for the stop pay..

Mistakes do happen from time time, i don't argu it was lost, but if you are legitimately concerned with them losing money orders, just drop them off to the CO at the front desk, and ask that they write the receipt(for the inmate, not you...they cant provide a receipt to you) and then ask them to drop it in the same there while your standing there....

And for the guy who says all the guards are black... thats insane. about a 50/50 mix with co's as well as management...

Just check out the website. there is a link to "visiting schedule and dress code." click on the link and there is no dress code. they like to surprise you when you get there by turning you away if you have a sleeveless shirt on in 90 degree weather or sling back shoes or some other attire that does not meet the dress code that is NOT posted on their website.

My husband is in George W. Hill for violating probation. Visiting is not as bad as people on here are saying. In my experience the C/O's were polite and understanding. But if you go in there with an attitude and take out your frustration on the guards then of course they will be rude to you. For my first visit I had no idea what I was doing, they walked me through it and they were very helpful. I was pleasantly surprised after what I read on here. As for the jail's website, they definetly did not post the dress code. Use common sense, don't wear anything tight or revealing. Pants can't have holes in them. No open toed shoes. Women must wear their hair down (I still don't get that one.) You can't wear two layers. No jackets or sweatshirts. Just bring in your car keys and your ID. Nothing else. And above all, be nice to the C/O's.

We had to go to G,W, Hill to question an inmate, the guards are just that ($12.00 an hour, unprofessional, uneducated, contract guards).

Privatization has all but destroyed the once known professional correctional facility! That's what happens when "uneducated, punk, thug, animals", are hired to watch the animals!

I just got done doing a year in that hell-hole. I have witnessed gaurds beating the crap out of inmates for NO reason other than that they dont like them. I have seen guards actually starve inmates by taking their trays. The funny part is, the guards are the ones who break the rules the most. THEY are the ones who bring in the tabacco, cell phones, pills etc. I WITNESSED IT FIRST HAND!!!!!!!!!!!! I know the names of alot of the dirty gaurds. All you do is have your people on the outside meet up with them and give them money and you can get ANYTHING you want!!!!

I had a woman who look like they pulled her from the bullpen tell me on a saturday morning that women's visits weren't until 3:30!! When in fact the visiting times were exactly as I expected. 8:30-11:30.. Halfway home, she called and said turn around that guard lied. And guess what. She was right!! The visit was completely unprofessional and when I offered a calm thank you I got a look like I had a horn on my head. I'll keep everyone posted on how this place is fairing seeing that most of the posts are rather old... DsKe.

I actually have been there and it wasn't that bad. In no way am I saying that there are folks who aren't a little rude or seem to take their position a little too seriously but I think its all about you attitude. MOST OF THEM WANT A REACTION OUT OF YOU. Some of them would love that, it gives them a kick out of their day but I was polite, and if they asked me something, I did it. No questions asked. Even said thank you when they were done the check. I actually found it to be decent. Go in their with an attitude and you'll be pissed off when you leave. Keep a positive attitude people!

And I hope some of you aren't paying attention to some of these comments when there calling people niggers and are telling you how much they hate the place and yet they can't even write a SIMPLE COMMENT WITHOUT BEING RACIST! Like why insult people's skin color? If you have a problem with the guards there then cool, but you calling people NIGGERS and such is uncalled for. I'm glad they gave you a hard time. They prolly knew you ain't like NIGGERS huh?? Well guess what those niggers are the very ones who you have to get checked in by!

My visits haven't been that bad. I wish my baby was home but I put up with it, and as long as your respectful you'll get results. And if you don't then you call a supervisor or file a complaint.
