Default Which federal location is your loved one at?

Well...no one has posted yet so I guess I will start! I know there are quite a few loved ones of federal inmates around here...and I'd like to see how many we have and where they are.


My loved one is in USP BEaumont, Texas

I was waiting for someone to post on this site. I see you are in Maryland and he is in Texas.

I am in Texas but my son
is in FCI Waseca, Minnesota.

The BOP doesn't believe in placing them near family.

FCI Beckley in WV--Yeah the judge ordered the Feds to place Billy "as close to home as possible." So far they've done that, until his points drop and they move him 3 hours away. Then my life will be turned upside down again.

I heard about the 500 miles but I think they left out the "times 2 or 3".
Denise, I am glad you have your Billy so close to home.

flygirlaa2,
can you tell me if your loved one had a clean record prior to moving him to fill the new prison....did he request the move...or was just picked? I'm asking this only because we hope that when the USP closer to here opens...he wants to try to get moved there.

That is what it is...a misprint! LOL
I do know that the rule is they must be in one place for 18 months before a transfer request is considered. There was also a rule that if you have less than 10 years, you can request a transfer to a camp nearer home...but less than two weeks before my son qualified, a memo went out that the policy was to be changed to less than 7 years.

Question to all: Is anyone going to try to visit during Thanksgiving or Christmas? My son told me not to waste the money for the trip when I might only get to see him for a few minutes due to the large number of people visiting during the holidays. He has been there since April with no visitors.

Well, we can't see Billy for Thanksgiving because he's out of points. However, the 1st falls on Sunday, and I'm debating on whether to visit that day. Don't know if it will still be so crowded. (my luck, it will be) But for Christmas, I'm sure I'll visit him one day that week since I have the week off work.

I believe that Sabine and Eddie are the farthest apart.

I am so happy for you that will visit for the Holidays.

Yes, that is a long way off. I am not sure when my son's next review is. They told him in so many words they will not consider a transfer until the 18 months are up. I have been writing Representatives, Congressmen, etc to try to get a transfer. So far all I received is a "I'll check into it and get back to you".

Have a wonderful Sunday.
Brenda

Brenda,
Ofcourse as much as they blow smoke up our a**es, (sorry), when he was moved down there, his old case worker and counselor and also the new ones agreeed that it was an unfair move. They raised his point level higher to move him out. So he was told if he stayed shot free from April to November they would put in a transfer request. But it seems at USP Beaumont, if you don't stand your groud....you don't stand a chance! Needless to say..he got into a fight...so no move! But now it sticks again...lets see what May brings! lol

ir Quality Control, lol.
Well, at least we have great support here to make it through.
Have a great Monday...I am off all week!
Take Care,
Brenda

i just visited my pen pal at the FCI i Florence CO last Friday. he is origianlly from WI, wants to transfer closer to home, but probably won't be able to. Why? the prople that testified against him at his trial are all at facilitieis that would qualify for him as closer and the authorities do not wish to 'mix' them together.

he also did tell me that before ANY transfer can happen, that an inmate MUST have 18 months without any 'violations' not just 18 months at the given facility.

i don't know if this helps clarify some of the talk here, but this is what i was told.

Later,

Jerry

just a quick note here.
http://www.prisontalk.com/forums/sho...&threadid=5890

i posted a rather lengthy post about my experience going to, from and during the vistit at FCI in Florence. i know that this may be old hat to some, but i am thinking that perhaps it might be new info to some here. anyway, the link should take you to the correct forum/discussion for you to read.

Enjoy!

Jerry

Jerry,
I am going to read your post because at one time my son's case manager said the nearest he will get back to home will probably be FCI Florence. Thanks for the input.

kint,
You are also in my prayers. We just keep up the courage to push forward. Until I found this site I never discussed my son with anyone because they did not want to hear...I guess this way they can forget it happened. Enough of that>>>are you going to be off Thanksgiving Day? I got absolutely nothing done today. Oops, my daughter just came in so I will talk later. Have a good day at work tomorrow.
Brenda

Hi to all,
Just a quick note concerning FedCure and National Cure.

www.fedcure.org

I am joining for my son and myself. They are involved with BOP issues. It is $3 for an inmate and $20 for an individual. After I receive my membership verification, I am going to see if they can help in the "distance from loved ones" problem. Although it may not be as important, I feel it ranks high in maintaining rehabilitation for inmates. There is also a list of congressmen who support the organization. I thought some of you who have loved ones in the Federal System might be interested.
Brenda

My husband is at FCI in Florence, Colorado. I live in Michigan and I go visit every 4-6 weeks. I just moved here about three months ago for a job opportunity. It used to be 1,000 miles, now it is 1600, but by air it isn't much difference. They are building a new prison in Herlong, California, about 45 miles from my hometown of Reno, Nevada. Perhaps he can get moved there to be closer to his daughter and elderly parents when it is complete. His place isn't too bad at all, but it is still prison and the guards seem to like to let you know that all the time. At least there is a beautiful view of the mountain ranges from the visiting room!
