I have no idea why he would be in there smh. Heís been there a little over 2 weeks. I will try to call again tomorrow and ask point blank if he is in There. I have written him 3 times, the first being sent last Thursday. I donít know how long it takes for them to get mail. I also just ordered two books and had them shipped there online yesterday. I hope he gets them soon now if heís in there

Visits for inmates not housed in general population, those in the "Special Housing Unit (SHU): Inmates housed in both Administrative Detention (AD) and Disciplinary Segregation (OS) will be permitted to visit in the noncontact area on Saturday, Sunday, and Federal holidays".

If you call the prison and ask if your visit will be in the regular visiting room, or in the noncontact visiting room, you might be able to learn if he is in the SHU, which is why he is limited to one short phone call each month.

If you ever speak with a bop employee who isn't brusque and brief, that will unfortunately be very unusual.
May I ask what you mean by Ďuntil they place himí? Iím so upset that he would enter a facility, and immediately be placed in the ĎSHUí. I just donít understand it. How long did it take for you to receive mail there? Is it longer in there?

They may be waiting for an open bed hopefully, hopefully he’s not in there long, it usually takes 3-4 days for us to receive mail. I think they get their first phone call after 30 days if he is indeed in the SHU. I know it’s hard just try your best to remain as calm as you can, he’s probably anxious to talk to you too hun!

I went straight to the SHU in 3 different prison moves, all of them because there were no beds available in general population. One of them was for a little longer than 2 weeks. It's also possible that he got in trouble, but he will have to tell you if that is the reason.

It often takes time for newly arrived prisoners to be able to phone or email you. He will call as soon as his new counselor sets him up on that phone/email system. It is also possible to import their old call and visiting lists (from another bop owned prison) which speeds up the process.

I hope you hear from him soon.

I think the Mid Atlantic regional office is over McCreary, you should be able to google and get their contact information and maybe they can steer you to whom you need to talk to. If you google BOP regional offices they will all be listed there.
