Unhappy Jackson Ga prison or GDCP

My son was moved to Jackson over 3 weeks ago. I have received letters but I have not received any calls.

Do they have visitation at Jackson? I am so sad and I miss my son terribly.

Any information would be greatly appreciated.

From reading other posts... he will not be able to call and only visitation is if he is in longer than 8 weeks or becomes a permanent at Jackson.

Thank you so much for replying. You mean there is a chance he will remain there for his full sentence? I can't get any answers and I am about to go crazy. I cry every single day and the not knowing kills me.

Hi Ramona,

My son was at Jackson/Ga Diagnostic. He was there about 7 1/2 weeks ( which is longer than the norm ) then was moved to a permanent camp. He could write but no phone calls. If he was still there after 60 days, he could have visitors. It's possible, but from my experience doubtful, he'll stay at Jackson. Jackson receives inmates everyday but ship inmates out on Tuesday's and Thursday's.

You can put money on his books either by money order or JPay. JPay charges a fee but it's faster. Once he gets to a permanent camp, it may take another 3-4 weeks to get his visitor's list approved and his phone list. Ga Dept of Corrections have contracted with Global Tel. We had our phone set up while our son was still at Jackson so there wouldn't be a wait when he WAS able to make a call.

They go thru all the diagnostic testing there. Eyes, dental, blood work , etc and classify him as either minimum, medium, close, or maximum. His security level will play a major role on where they send him.

Its a hard road and very frustrating. I would say be patient if you can, but I've never been able to do that....they have my son!!!

PM me if you want and I'll give you the phone numbers / contact persons I have spoken to and they have been helpful....hard to reach, but helpful when I did reach them.

Praying for you and your son.
