I would probably post this in the general federal forum, not the SS section. You'll get more views on it.

I hope you get answers from folks who are familiar with Danbury. Be sure to check the 37 page sticky "women's federal prison camps" here.

Danbury has been converted from a women's camp to a men's camp.

This is incorrect. The low prison was converted to a men's prison, but there has always been a camp for females.

And a new, low FCI for females has been opened.

http://www.newstimes.com/local/artic...y-10897751.php




today From the BoP web site

Inmate Gender: Male and Female Offenders
Population:
1,121 Total Inmates
838 Inmates at the FCI - these are all males
188 Inmates at the Camp - these are all females
95 Inmates at the FSL F - these are all females

FSL F means "federal satellite low female"

Hey Thena....I know your time is getting short, so I just wanted to tell you to keep your chin up.

If you haven't already, make a list of your user names and passwords for websites that you frequent (PTO, Facebook, etc) and put in a safe place. Make a list of names and phone numbers that can be sent to you when you're settled. Pictures!! Take some pictures over the next couple of days...they can be sent to you a few at a time after you're settled as well.

Let us know when you're HOME!!! And have a safe & speedy journey

Also, as we have been experiencing some of these things with my husband who SS on Dec 5, make sure you make copies of everything you can think of that you may need to have sent to you in case you don't send it to yourself. Additionally, if you paid any sort of restitution, you will have to prove that you paid it. Even though my husband's PSR and judgment showed he paid it, they are still making him show proof that he paid it as well, so I just had to send him all the copies. Just another one of the inefficiencies we are learning about in the federal prison system.
