Default Who to call about placement if no letter received???

Hi all...
I'm supposed to self-surrender on January 19th. I found my regester number at BOP.gov but can't get anybody to answer the phone there to tell me WHERE I'm being placed. Is there anyone else to call to find out?
Thanks,
Michael

Try the U.S. Marshals Service in the location where you were convicted.

I just heard from a poster that self surrendered on the 16th(patsfan).....Once he made the grueling trip to the facility....Upon receiving they inform him there has been a mistake..His co~defendant is there!!!!!
Soooo, he is in the SHU until they transfer him....
Just another BOP screw up that could have been avoided!

some time ago I read somewhere on this PTO site what the first 3-digits mean to a inmate number for example my hubby start with 129**-040 and his bunkie starts with 133**-171 or is it the last 3 digits does any one know what they mean?

Omg my bf was told to report last wendsday to the local FBI office after pleading guilty to a charge weeks before but they didn't give any info he hadn't been sentenced yet though. He never returned home and I can't find out any info he isn't in the Bop system.

Idk. Only because his crime wasn't of the sort that calls for witness protection. He was charged with hacking a website/Intentionally damaging a protected computer system.

He must have had an attorney - check with him/her.

The last three represent the location of the court they were convicted. Example 083 is VA; 060- Ohio, Inmates from the same states have the same last 3 digits


Some one else might have better info

I hope they place him close to you. At this point, it's just "wait and see." At least now he's on his final sentence. Wherever he lands, encourage him to participate in job and programs and work toward retaining his federal good time credits and a halfway house placement, which will shorten his time a bit. Keep us posted on where he lands! Z.

i agree with you!!! my family lived in MN and my brother was sent to Arkansas. Now he is in NJ. half of my family is now in Florida and there is place close by but we can't get my brother moved down here. I think the BOP tries to make it difficult. In my opinion, prisoners need family to keep them sane in that place. They need family to keep their faith that when they get out we are here for them. when the bop sends them so far away from loved ones i think they make it harder on the family and prisoner. its crap!

Sorry to hear that but it's not uncommon. You can write to complain but that's not going to change his designation. Basically, he will need, at each unit team meeting, to request a transfer closer to home. Usually, after 18 months of clear conduct, the inmate can be transferred. Or if his security level changes, he might be transferred closer. The decision is up to the BOP and often depends, initially, on the security level and where beds are available, among other factors. Z.

I have been checking the BOP Inmate Locator regularly since me son was sentenced on March 26 of this year. About a week ago he finally showed up on it, but just his name and number. Now his release date has been added and location shows as "In Transit". Does this mean he will be moved soon? He is currently in the GEO Federal Detentsion center here in San Antonio.
Thanks

Yes, that is likely what it means Be patient - it may take some time for him to get to his designated prison.

What are the chances of getting a transfer once you are designated? My fiance was sent to Pensacola-we live in Texas. They told him when he got there that it would be 18 months before he could move. He has heard different stories since then so he asked me to see what I could find out.

A minimum of 18 months of good behavior is pretty much the BOP's standard practice before approving a transfer. That doesn't mean a transfer will be approved when the 18 months is up. But after being there a year, he should begin asking for the transfer at each unit team meeting.

Does anyone have an outline of what the transfer process is like for the inmate?

If they're being moved on a bus, for example, and the trip is a long one, do they get food or anywhere to sleep? Or does the bus just keep driving non-stop until they reach the destination? How do prisoners gets moved for longer distances? By airplane?

My husband won't be moved for a while yet (he's still awaiting sentencing) but when I read about the long waits for transfers, I wonder what it's like for the inmates.

When I was in I was moved by both bus and Con-Air. They always fed us, usually a bag lunch of some sort. Many times it depends upon the distance as to whether there is a stop along the way.

I was in Butner FPC in NC and had to be resentenced back in PA so I was flown. When I transferred camps in NC though, it was by bus. I hope that this helps. Good Luck!

My husband went by van and they gave them a sack lunch. I talked to a friend, who flew by Con-Air and he said they got a baloney sandwich and kool-aid.

Default Designation process

I am amazed at all I read on this site. With all the prisons the feds have they manage to put my son on the other side of the country. This is after a decrease in security status. At times I just want to scream knowing my tax dollars pay for this! If everyone only knew what a waste mandatory sentences are to our country. I just get so angry and depressed at the same time. 14 more years to go, and quite honestly he could enter society with no problem now. They say they want families together. Tell me another lie.
