You can call the prison for more information, but here's what I'm guessing:

1. When you get to the speaker by the gate house, tell the guy you're there for a release. Typically, release happens after shift change around 0600, so I would show up around 0600.

2. I believe you can send clothes ahead of time, or bring them the day of. If you bring them the day of, you'll have to hand them over before he comes out so they can search them. Make sure whatever you bring for him meets the visiting rules clothing rules (no camo, no blue).

3. He should be given a release day/time a few days in advance, and he'll need to tell you as soon as he knows.

4. Your best bet is to call the main OSCI number and ask them to walk you through it. Unlike other places, there is a different 'door' (R&D) that you'll pick him up at - it won't be the usual visitation gatehouse, so knowing in advance helps a lot.

All of this being said, I have never picked someone up from OSCI. So I do urge you to call them to make sure I haven't guessed anything incorrectly (or they changed the way the did things since the last time I heard about it).

And most importantly, CONGRATS!!! How exciting! I hope things run smoothly - and don't forget to follow everything the PO/release papers say to do - and get it in writing. He'll have to check in with his PO within a few days of release, so make sure you're ready for that. There will be a zillion little things to get done, including driver's license/state ID card, etc.

Please come back and let us know how things went - it's always nice to hear good news here!

Mine paroled out of santiam and I was able to take his box of dress out clothes I think a week or two prior to his release. I was able to drop them at the front gate office. He should be able to find out and instruct you.
