My boyfriend was just transferred from a county jail to the medium security prison it says they are supposed to get a phone call when they arrive but I haven't heard from him. Is that normal?
That is not normal. They do not get "a phone call" when they get there per se, they have to go through orientation before their phone and visitation privileges are offered. It might be a day or a week, depending on the facility and the intake load of new inmates. Let us know the name of the facility, we might be able to save you money on your calls. In some cases there is a big difference between the number you use...Read more
There is no specific time set aside. They transfer the inmate to the jurisdiction where the judge sits and whenever there is a court date, he will be there. It might be a week, it could be three months we just have no way of knowing.
we do not have that information. they will not alert the outside when an inmate is set for transfer either, so that the safety and security of the officers transporting inmates remains at the highest level.

Inmate transfer can be good or bad. Inmates get moved sometimes as a reward for good behavior. The transfer send them to a lower custody facility where doing time is a bit easier. The transfer that sends them for disciplinary reasons is bad. Usually, they are transferred to punish and restrict their movements.
Inmates get moved for many reasons. Some of the reasons are actually good for the inmate. When an inmate has done a good portion of their sentence with little or no incident reports, they may qualify for a lower custody level which would gve them the option of moving to a less strict facility. This is known "stepping down" your sentence. Once an inmate is stepped down to minimum security status, theya re leigible for work release and very relaxed...Read more
My brother is in the Wichita Falls County Jail in Texas and will be transfered to a SAFPF facility. Could you find out for me ,which facility he will go to?
The DOC will not tell you where an inmate is going until they have arrived - for the safety and security of all involved in the transfer
Fire camp is a miminum security prison in the CDCR. It is a perk for inmates to have a job that is outside the confines of the prison walls or fences. If your inmate gets to finish his bid at the camp, he will be released from there. Depending on the release conditions, he will likely have a probation officer that he reports to for a period of time. Some inmates get released into society straight from the camp, others...Read more
Offenders are assigned to facilities based on custody classification, space availability, level of care designations (medical and/or mental health), and many other contributing factors. While DOC would like to make assignments with only geographical considerations in mind, it is not possible to do this based on the demand for beds in various areas of the state. As such, offenders are placed in locations that best meet their needs and the space needs of the Department. Written transfer requests should be...Read more
I feel like it has made me more aware of the world around me. Before incarceration I took for granted the wonderful sights and sounds that surround us everyday. Showering barefoot, using the bathroom alone, going to bed whenever it suits me, ice cream, kids laughing, fresh fruit... the list is endless and I am appreciating them all so much more than ever before. Therefore, I feel that the time I've done has helped me enjoy my life now and ahead more than I knew I could. ...Read more
