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.

I hear that...I am in Texas and my guy was here until March of last year...out in Beaumont. BOP decided they were going to 'clean up' in Beaumont and they shipped him off to California (Atwater). Now he is 1700-1800 miles from home and I can't afford to get out there. Thanks to the Lord, my guy understands and we talk as often as possible and write a million letters...but every once in a while he lets the lonely show and tells me how much he wishes I was there...

By the strength of the Lord we can do all things...let us continue to lift up our loved ones!

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.

My husband is also in USP Lompoc. I'm very fortunate at this moment that my job has expanded to Lompoc and since I am a trainer I have been sent here to train the new people. For the next 6wks, I will be able to visit every weekend.

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

My son is in Pollock Louisiana FCI.He was sent there over 18 months ago from Herlong California. They told me he would do about 18 months there and they would consider sending him to Oregon where we are. Instead, they have now took him from USP Pollock and put him in FCI Pollock.They said, he now has to spend at least 18 months in FCi, and then they would consider Oregon. He works for UNICOR, but they don't tell him anything about why he is not being sent closer to home. I am 73 and disabled and I will probably never see gim again as it is hard for me to travel.

Default prison transfers

I came across this website designationmatters.org. They were able to help me get my cousin transferred closer to home. Maybe they can help you. Good luck!

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
