Well I've been wondering, what colors are accepted? Because I've seen some get in with beige pants one day and then another day they were turned away. So can anyone clarify what Colors you can wear for visiting? And can tops have characters on it?

I was told that color depends on where you visit. Also the characters. I was told about Mule Creek the top can't have a bulldog on it.

I was told the colors can't match the colors of the prison staff so as not to confuse staff and visitors in the event of a lockdown or an escape attempt which would make it harder for the guys in the towers to distinguish between the two and it's probably safe not to wear any characters. See the guidelines thread for the complete rundown

It does depend on the facility, but in very broad strokes: No Khaki, no Camoflage, no Blue, no blaze orange, no white shirts.

Black, pink and yellow are nearly always safe, skirts or shorts should cover your knee when seated (Yes, I know the rule SAYS "2 inches", but in practice, your knees should not show) nothing too tight, low cut, strapless or spagetti strap, nothing transparent enough for the outline of undergarments to show through (Wearing flesh toned underthings or matching your bra to the colour of your shirt helps prevent eagle eyed COs from complaining about that).... So far, I dress as if I'm about to go to lunch in a nice restaurant with someone's mom, and I've had no trouble at all.

Why can't I access the link that "williams baby" posted? When visitation is on Saturdays and Sundays, can you sign up for a visit on each day to visit the same inmate or? Do you know if they ever get internet access, etc.? My best friend should be transferred to one of the women's Chowchilla prisons within the week.

Rachel, do you have Adobe Reader on your computer? You have to have this program to be able to read the Title 15.

Inmates do not have internet access. And as for the visiting. Whey you say "sign up" do you mean behind glass visiting? You can usually only sign up for one day because they fill up fast. If it is regular visiting you do not need to sign up. You just show up and they let you in (if you were already approved). As long as they are not full by the time you show up, you will be allowed to see the inmate both on Saturday and Sunday.

Laura, William'sBaby

Thanks, Laura! As far as behind the glass visiting (since I've gathered that's the only option at first with a "reception" inmate) is there any way to "call" and make an appointment? I'm assuming you have to physically be there? Although from what I've gathered, I guess you have to be "approved" regardless so maybe you CAN call and make an appointment? I've just gotten used to "county" and they make you come in, wait in line, give your ID, get your background run, and then approve you for THAT visit. You have to do this EVERY time...so is CDC behind glass visiting the same or??
(I DO have ADOBE....I get a message saying I'm not "allowed to view" it or something like that.)

Yes, you must go through the approval process before you can visit, whether it's to be a contact visit or a non contact visit. The routine for non-contact visits/phone visits at most facilities is this: You call the facility and either make the appointment or else you leave a message with your name and phone number, the inmate name and CDC number, the date on which you wish to visit and they call you back to schedule the appointment.
How laid back they are about folks just "showing up" depends a lot on how busy the visiting is at that facility....High Desert, for example, rarely gets "full up" for visits, so it's not quite such a gamble if you did not have a chance to make an appointment, but San Quentin can't be quite so accommodating because their appointment slots tend to really fill up.

Hairdezigner, which facillity will you be visiting? Each facility has slightly different rules so it is almost impossible to offer an answer to a dress code question without knowing where you'll be going.

Default can't access the file, either

I have Adobe installed on my laptop and I can't access the file, either. When I click on the link, I get taken to a page here at prisontalk telling me that I do not have sufficient priviledges to be able to view the page I'm requesting . . .

The guidelines are included in nearly every one of the Prison Guides and everyone is encouraged to get familiar with the guide for "their" facility.

I'm an ex-felon, I been off parole since 1996. Now, my sister has a 25 to life sentence. I filled out a visiting form and was denied because they said I needed a "discharge card from parole". What steps do I need to take in order to get this done? Please, I need help..........Regards..............

Hi There. I'm sorry to hear about your sister.

As for discharge card, here is the link of what it looks like. I'm not sure myself which steps you need to take. I would ASSUME you can call your former parole office?? and maybe ask for this form? I sure hope someone comes around to help out. Best of luck to you and your sister!!!

LINK TO WHAT THE FORM LOOKS LIKE:
http://www.cdcr.ca.gov/Regulations/A...63Rev10-06.pdf

ON THE SECOND PAGE OF THIS FORM, IT HAS THE REGIONAL OFFICE NUMBERS.
