Here is the email for visiting... Svspvisiting@cdcr.ca.gov ... They said that the email system was down during transition...

The new Sgt is Perez... she has worked visiting at SVSP for the last 12 years off and on... my experience with her have always been cordial and not overboard.

Also VPASS will be in effect in May, not exactly sure when, but she said that they would be posting flyers soon.

That is what Sgt Perez said... that we can either email or call... she said email wasnt working during the transition... so annoying that they implement rules with NO notice... so CDCR for you... but I emailed yesterday and havent yet received a response and I guess I will start calling at 10 am on Thursday if I dont hear anything...

From what I hear on the VPASS... its quick and easy... this will be a good change for us all.

Yes the days are still Mon, Thur and Fri from 10- 1 pm and i read that they are also on Saturday and Sunday between 9 -11.

I forgot also to include that when you make your online appt, they will call to confirm that you have an appt, so if you do not get a call from them confirming your appointment, you dont have one.

I received my call this morning.

I had no idea that they would e mail me back? I thought they were going to call to confirm my appointment. I learned from PTO that we were able to e mail appointments again. I'm not mad that they did get back to me. I'm so glad they got back to me the same day! Sorry I dont know the answer to how long it takes to get back to us.

Does anyone know if you have to re-submit a visiting form if the one from reception hasn't been approved yet && he got mainlined?

Also, is there any special accommodation for if you are visiting from out of state, made an appointment && they go on lockdown? I thought I read something about if u live out of state && something like that happens, they might make special exceptions?
Thanx

Default Visiting cancelled may 25 and 26

Visiting is cancelled at svsp may 25 and 26. Does anyone know why? All yards are cancelled.
My friend had an ad-seg appt for tomorrow and she got a voice message that visiting was cancelled. Kudos to the staff for the phone call that saved us a ten hour drive.
Hope everyone is safe and well, inmates and staff.

How does everyone like using VPASS to make our appointments? I think its really easy but I have one question? Last Sunday night I was able to make appointments for 5/25 &5/26/2013 and for 6/1/13 & 6/2/2013.

Tonight I was only given the option to make an appointment for 6/8 & 6/9/2013. So I was only able to make 1 weeks appointments not 2 weeks in advance. Does anyone know if we get to make one weekend of appnts. or 2 weekends of appointments in advance?
