--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Quarterly Packages:

The California Inmate Quarterly Package system allows you to send much-desired items to your incarcerated loved one. Each institution sets it’s own rules as to what items are allowed and prohibited and items vary by privilege groups. As a result, vendors therefore provide services to a limited amount of Facilities, Camps, CCF’s or the LA County Jail System. All Quarterly Packages are limited to a maximum weight of 30 Lbs. Nor can they exceed dimensions of 24” x 24” x 24”. All vendors list those institutions for which they provide goods and services and what privilege groups.

Special Packages:

Special Packages allow for the purchase of Electronics, Accessories, Musical Instruments, Under Garments and Clothing, Correspondence Courses, Legal Material and Faith Based Items. That would otherwise crowd a quarterly package beyond its allowed weight or dimensions. There is no limit to the amount of special packages allowed in a calendar year.

***For more information on quarterly packages and special purchases, you can contact the Receiving and Releasing Department at LAC. Just call the main telephone number and press 0 to speak with an operator. You can then ask to be transferred to the R&R Department.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

1st Quarter = January 1st - March 31st

2nd Quarter = April 1st - June 30th

3rd Quarter = July 1st - September 30th

4th Quarter = October 1st - December 31st

Default LAC Visiting Information

Before you can visit an inmate, you will need to be approved. Your inmate must send you a visiting form (CDC 106). This form MUST be signed by your inmate before he sends it you you. Once you receive your visiting questionnaire, fill it out TRUTHFULLY and don't leave any questions blank. Then, once you are finished, send your completed questionnaire to:

Attn: Visiting Sergeant
California State Prison, Los Angeles County
44750 60th Street West
Lancaster, CA 93536-7620


The average wait for a response is 6-8 weeks, from the time your application is received by the visiting staff. In some cases, it takes longer than 8 weeks. I suggest calling the visiting department if your wait is longer than 8 weeks, and find out if your application has been received. They will NOT tell you if you have been approved or disapproved over the phone. It is the responsibility of the inmate to relay that information to you. If you are APPROVED, the inmate will be notified. If you are DISAPPROVED, the inmate will be notified AND you will be mailed a written response with details of the denial.

Reasons for DISAPPROVAL include (but are not limited to):

Lying on your application
Being a Convicted Felon (you must have prior written approval from the warden before stepping on prison grounds)
Leaving Questions Blank
Having UNPAID tickets (of ANY kind)
Having Outstanding Warrants
Being on Active Parole/Probation (you will need prior approval from the Warden)

Default LAC Family Visits Information

Some prisons are different, but here is some information that pertains to most California Prisons:

The visitor(s) shall adhere to all institutional procedures and departmental regulations while on institutions grounds. Participation in the Family Visiting Program is restricted to immediate family members, unless a legal foster relationship exists. Immediate family members are defined as legal spouse of the inmate and the inmate's legal stepchildren.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

From our PTO member Cysreese:

My husband sends me the food list just in case I want to add or change something and so that I can send all paperwork together.

He sends the Exemption Of Family Visit/Temporary Community Leave Funds from Restitution Fines/Orders. It has the amount of money you will send for the family visit, put an x where is states "these funds are to pay for food during a Family visit (FV) At the bottom you will sign and date it.

Family visit menu order form for the food. Then there is a white slip that has your husband's/son's name and CDC number and all those that will be visiting. It has the dates of the family visit. It also has on the paper two boxes for you to check. The first one says you will arrive as schedule between whatever times is on the paper and the second box says you will not arrive and to please cancel the visit.

He also sends a pink form which is his trust account withdrawal order form with his info and he signs and dates it. When I am done looking over everything I send it back to the address provided on the paper with all visitors names on it.

White form- Names with visitors on it and if you will be attending the FV.
Pink form-Trust fund paper
Yellow paper- Exemption Of Family Visit/Temporary Community Leave Funds from Restitution Fines/Orders.
White paper- Food menu
