Welcome to Pto Leetninja!!! My boyfriend is in Solano. I have not ever had a visit behind the glass. However my best friend has visited her husband behind the glass. The visits are 90 minutes long. You have to call the prison to make an appt. for a visit. The number is (707) 451-0182 just listen to the options. If you have a contact visit the CO's are cool. They do not bother you unless you do something to break the "rules." Other than that it is fine. The CO's at processing are nice as well. All in all Solano is not that bad compared to other places.

Inmates can receive packages 4 times a year. You can order almost anything from the catalog or online. I prefer ordering online. You can order food, snacks, toiletries, under cloths, stamps tennis shoes, etc. the list goes on. Here are some of the places you can order from. I hope this helped out a little. If you have other questions just ask. If I do not know the answer someone does on PTO. I love PTO!!! :thumbsup:

do you have to make an appointment even if you do have contact visits? or do you just show up?

If he let you know that you've been approved, of course you can go this weekend. Be ready for the crowd. visiting is from 8:00am to 3:00pm. Its best if you get there around 9 or 9:30. Reason being they will terminate visits around 10:30- 11:00 for those who started there visits between 8:00- 10:00. Your better of at that time and you'll probably be able to stay till 3:00. Good luck and happy visiting.

Hello,
My boyfriend is currently in HDSP and is being transferred to Solano soon, at least we're hoping so because it's much closer to me. So i just wanted to know how it was for you ladies so far, are your men doing okay in there. I guess i just want my baby to be okay, you know? Thanks girls.
