Ok, I just recieved a letter from my son's dad and he said they are transporting a bunch of inmates out of SVSP and he said his options are either bakersfield or High Desert. Does anyone know anything about this? He did not give me any details. Please give me any info you got...thanks so much!:confused:

i replied on another thread also, but you can call the prison and ask to talk to his counselor. he would probably be the one who could give you the most accurate answer.

The Info That I Have Recieved On Inmates Getting Shipped Out Is That , If They Have Level Three Or Level Two Points They Are Being Shipped Out , If They Were Housed On D Yard They Got Moved To C Yard , The Only Main Line Yard Is C Yard . A- Yard Is A Level 4 Sny(sensetive Needs Yard) B-yard Is Going To Be A Level Three Sny , D Yard Will Turn Into A Yard For Inmates Who Are Classified With A Chronic Or Serious Illness , Which Require Medication . And All This Was Giving A Deadline By The End Of This Month . So Most Likely C-yard Will Have Lots Of Inmates Tranferred Or Just The Usual Over Crowding .

beautiful. thank you for the info!
so basically, we can expect C Yard to never see daylight again because they are going to be over crowded and under staffed. . . imagine that *rolls eyes*

YAY! At least I hope that is a better place for him!
I updated already but mine was trying to get a transfer, but it has just a few too many points still so he wont qualify for this round :(
I hope KVSP is better for him and you and that you dont have as many issues as you have had at SVSP :thumbsup:

I found out my son's dad went to Kern Valley also. Isn't that the brand new prison? I have the phone # in case you need it. It's 661-721-6300. the address is P.O. Box 6000 delano, ca 93216. The people I spoke to on the phone seemed really nice and they answered all my questions without getting rude or anything, so it seems better.

Did they happen to say when they are going to be able to call or when they can have visits, or how long the processing is there.

They said they have to go through orientation 1st, which takes 10-14 days. He recommended that you call before driving up thee to visit. I live in sacrament, so that a 4-5 hr drive for me.

I would'nt think it would take that long, because I live in San Francisco and it takes me 3 hours to get to Fresno and its about 45 mins. to an hour outside of Fresno, I would think it would be closer for you.

It's about 250 miles from Sacramento. Probably best to take 99 all the way. If you want to take all the short cuts etc. from I-5, then you go to 198 East, then 43 South in Hanford. Be careful, because after Corcoran and SATF you might miss Cecil Ave. (It'll be a left turn) then the prison is about 3/4 mile down on the right hand side (KVSP) if you go too far, you'll see a prison on the left hand side of Cecil about a mile further down. That's NKSP.

hello.

yes you can send a total of 20 stamped envelopes and a pad of like legal paper. no wire bound notebooks. and the stamps have to be on the envelipes when you send them. and only 20. if you send more than 20 in an envelope they will take away the extras
