Post Son in Camp Hill, will he stay there or transfer to different prison?

hi everyone i'm new to this my son is currently in camp hill in pa . I set up a jpay account and sent money along with a few emails but haven't received any emails back. also mailed him a letter but the last letter I received from him he had asked if I set a jpay account up. He is in L block so I assumed he would get his emails and letters. I was also wondering if he will stay there or will he be transferred to a different facility? any info would be greatly appreciated so lost

Welcome to Prison Talk and to the Parents forum. I gave you your own introductory thread.

There is much information about the PA processing experience for new inmates, and their families, in the PA Prison forums.
http://www.prisontalk.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=164

another helpful resource is the PA Prison Society in Philadelphia.

Your son is in the Diagnostic & Classification Center (CDCC) side of SCI Camp Hill. He will be there for a while until they decide where to send him. A few inmates are kept at Camp Hill permanently, but you should expect he will be classified to a different facility. The DOC will try to place him in the same region of PA that he came from, although this is not guaranteed.

Hello! This post was very informative, for me as well. My boyfriend is also in Camp Hill and from the looks of it on the DOC website it says beside his name that will be his permanent location. Does that actually mean that is where he will be for the remainder of his time OR will he actually get to be close to home here in Erie? Which would actually be Albion (which I heard was over populated) Thanks!

Very few male inmates are classified to stay at Camp Hill. All male inmates pass through the DCC part -- wearing blue uniforms -- on their way to their home prisons. While in blues, the Inmate Locator will show Camp Hill as their "permanent location" (simply because they have no other location yet.)

As much as possible, the DOC is now trying to place inmates in the region from which they came. So a male from Erie should end up in the Western region.

Thank you! My boyfriend has also said the same in the last two letters he's sent. I was so worried because I do miss him so and I want to be able to at least visit him again!
