Don't be embarrassed, bop stands for be confused/or backward on purpose. The other problem is that sending an email to the "executive assistant" definitely doesn't mean that they will bother to reply, or that a phone call will even be answered.

Default Soon to be a guest at Sheridan

Just getting started with this whole process ~ we don't have the self-surrender date yet but it will be sometime this summer, and will be at Sheridan. I'd love anything that anyone feels comfortable sharing with us.

Even if the judge recommended Sheridan doesn't mean that the bop will actually send him there. They send new prisoners to prisons that have room for them. He will also have to be rated at the correct custody level for either a medium security, or the minimum security camp.

Thank you for the link. We are on a very steep learning curve. The order for Sheridan came from out of state so just waiting to see what happens next.

It's confusing on purpose. Most lessons are learned the hard way I'm sorry to say. Be sure to ask any questions you have here.

An outside health accreditation company has been contracted to conduct an audit of the medical care at Sheridan prisons. The inmates can complete a survey which is on the electronic bulletin board in their unit. Family members can email in comments (and their names are kept anonymous according to the company) about the medical care of those in Sheridan. Email: info@aaahc.org The sign at the institution states the notice of the audit is to be kept up until July 25th, I believe, so send your comments in soon.

Hello everyone, I’ve been sentenced to 48 month stay at camp Sheridan. Can anyone give me an idea on what to expect? This will be my first time behind bars and I have no idea what it will be like. I’ve heard conflicting things about having a weapon enhancement and getting time off with rdap. Has anyone known someone to get the time off with an enhancement? This was a non violent conspiracy crime.

How much should I go in with $500? Does anyone know about the education programs that are available? What the day to day looks like. Thanks in advance.

Welcome to Prison Talk. Here are the crimes the bop considers to be crimes of violence.

and the RDAP program statement.

Thank you very much! Does anyone know if you can send books to inmates at Sheridan with Amazon? If so is there a limit of how many per time?

Federal inmates have a limit on the number of books they can possess, but I'm unaware of a limit on the number you can send. I received books from Amazon at a number of different bop prisons, but not Sheridan.

Whenever you send books be sure they will arrive in the US Mail, not UPS or fedex.

Default Sheridan mail shut down

Inmates at the camp havenít gotten mail for over two weeks now. They claim something hazardous was sent in and theyíre ďwaiting for hazmatĒ. Iím not buying it. Why hasnít the postal service looked into this? Oh yeah, itís all federal government. Somebody robbed the commissary and they cut off commissary for a month. One douchebag CO yells count-count-count! For the bed counts and wakes everybody up every few hours in the middle of the night. If youíre waiting for a book to arrive to your LO at Sheridan, donít hold your breath. Make sure mail delivery has been restored before sending squat there. If you have somebody there or going there, donít expect anything from staff. They clearly donít care about anything. Youíre on your own and must rely on other inmates for any useful information. They set up the pill line and glucose counts for 6am. This assures that the diabetics wont get breakfast. Brilliant.

Welcome to Prison Talk and to the federal forum Elaine. Its unfortunate that so much of the bop works (or doesn't work) the same way.

My LO one just informed me that the camp are shutting down email for 90 days. I received a message from the corrilinks admin this morning saying that this federal inmate temporarily does not have access to message. it freaked me out because i thought my husband got in trouble. but an hour later, i received an email from him telling me that the camp is stopping email for 90 days. I don't know what's going on..
