5 thoughts on “FCI TERMINAL ISLAND”

  1. What does it mean if the inmates name is on this list but doesn’t have a date he was released? Please tell me good news.

    • If the Release Date field indicates “UNKNOWN”, the inmate’s confinement term is not determined (e.g. he or she may be in pretrial status, has not yet been sentenced, is being held due to a civil commitment, etc.)

  2. Panfila,
    Of Course everything is relative and that’s especially true in the BOP, as I’m sure you know (or so it sounds like). In our experience, and from everything we’ve gathered from multiple sources that have been in, or still are in, FCI Terminal Island, it’s not a bad place to do time with offenses that otherwise are problematic in the institutional setting. That said, we understand it’s never an easy thing to endure and hope we didn’t mislead. Please remember that all of our institutional missives have been written (in EVERY case) by a current or former inmate at each facility. While we welcome ALL comments, without editing or redaction, we encourage you to elaborate on your personal (if that’s what it is) experience. The purpose of our site (and business, for that matter) is to help provide accurate information, and we ask that you (and anyone else that feels the urge) to help us provide just that. Feel free to disagree, but please provide some specific anecdotes, if you can! We thank you for your visit and hope you’ll keep coming back!
