We'll use this thread to swap information about Pennsylvania inmates being housed in Green Rock Correctional Center, Virginia.

Inmates sent there were issued VA DOC ID numbers, but there is no way to obtain them on-line that I can find. I sent a letter with the PA ID number on it and presume it reached him.

The address is:

<Inmate name> <Inmate VA Number>
Green Rock Correctional Center
P. O. Box 1000
Chatham, VA 24531

If you use the PA DOC inmate locator, you'll see that Virginia and Michigan are now on the pull-down menu for "Location." If you don't enter anything else, you'll get the complete list for the facility.

If you know someone there, let them know that The Pennsylvania Prison Society has obtained permission to send Official Visitors, and we are organizing a trip to do so. Inmates wishing to meet with an OV should send their letter of request to the Prison Society.

Some of the news coming from Green Rock is distressing.

1. Inmates whom they feel are disruptive may be transferred to the Red Onion facility in far western VA. It is their supermax facility. We have documented one such transfer thus far.

2. Inmates were ordered to shave all facial hair upon arrival. Some of those refusing to do so were sent back to Pennsylvania.

3. Hispanic inmates seem to be profiled as gang members, even where there is no such mention in their files.

4. Cell lights are on 24/7. The inmates don't have a light switch inside the cell.

5. Inmates are being told they were sent their for disciplinary reasons. While we know this isn't true, the concern is that VA staff think it is and may be acting because of it.

These issues are already being addressed by the Prison Society.
