As long as forwarding happens, or even if mail is returned to you, at least you will know if he got it or not.
Oh ok. So, if a letter needs to be forwarded to him at the new prison, what is the process and how long does it take before they get the forwarded mail?

I don't think there's really a process. It's just up to them if they want to forward it. If not, then you'll get it returned in the mail.

It will be up to the staff at the old prison, whatever they decide to do, and when. I imagine there are as many different inmate experiences as there are federal prisons.

I sent a photo calendar (I think it was Shutterfly) & they returned it since it didn't come directly from them. I know I can order another one ($$$) but I'm wondering if I can just send one month at a time to him? Anyone sent any before?

Sending a calendar page, or more, with a letter shouldn't be an issue. I regularly received all sorts of "attachments", including copies of internet news articles.

It will still be up to whoever is working in the mailroom that day.

Any updates on what is going on at Canaan? Why are they on lockdown? Anyone who knows? Are you getting e-mails/phonecalls? Thanks.

Default Hi everyone:)

I'm not sure if this is posted correctly as I'm still learning this site. My LO was just transferred to USP Canaan after having spent a week at Oklahoma transfer center. He was at Gilmer, got in trouble ended up in SHU and well you get the jist of it My question is will he stay at Canaan? Will he be.in the SMU due to him having had several fights in Gilmer and everywhere else he's been in Or will they transfer him outta there at some point? Also where exactly is Canaan? What would be closest airport/city? Any and all advice/help is really appreciated. Thank you in advance

Hi! From what my husband has told me, Canaan is a disciplinary facility. I believe there is one other. If he came in from the SHU, he will probably be housed there until he can be classed at Canaan. The final stop would be AdMax in Colorado. That is the AdSeg facility. Canaan is in the top Northeast of Pennsylvania. The closest airport is in Wilkes-Barre/Scranton, however there are cheaper flights into Newark, Philadelphia and others. Hope that helps!

Awe, don't be confused. He can stay there, but he could move too. It's really up to him (his behavior), and if he gets along there. He meets with his team & they can tell him more.

I haven't heard from my LO since last week but that's because he's in the SHU getting ready to leave to go to his new prison. I haven't heard from the inmate that knows him since 3 weeks ago. I did hear that there have been a lot of fights there.

Hello and welcome to the USP Canaan forum! When my LO got to USP Canaan, they put him in general population since he was in the SHU at another prison before he got to USP Canaan but it depends. He may go to the SHU or he may be put in general population but again, it depends on what they say and what they do. I haven't been up there due to school but my LO is about to leave USP Canaan to go to another prison and he's currently in the SHU until they move him. I heard that USP Canaan have a lot of fights there so they go on lockdown so before you go visit, call to be sure that visitation will be going on as scheduled. If you have any questions about USP Canaan, please don't be afraid to ask and we will do our best to help you

Yes, they are on lock down, I received a letter from a friend advising me not to worry, he said he wasn't sure how long they were going to be locked down.

If he wasn't in the SHU getting ready to leave to go to his new prison, I know he would. He's still there for right now but he's going to write me when he gets to the new prison.

I know USP Canaan is still on lockdown for right now but I have a question. Does transfers happen during lockdown? I'm thinking that they don't happen until the lockdown is over so they're still at the prison they're at for now until it happens. Am I right about that?
