Question MCI Cedar Junction Walpole, MA Questions

Hey everyone. My name is Mersades. My guy was just sent to Walpole on Jan. 25th, 2011. He hasn't been there long so I really don't know anything. I know the calls come through Global Tel-Link but that's about it. I have a few questions that I'm really hoping someone can answer.

1.) Do I have to make an appointment to see him? If so, how does that work?

2.) Can I send him books through Barnes & Noble? I could when he was in county.

3.) What is the address I use to send letters? I know I need his W#.

4.) If I can send him books, would I need his W# and the same address I use for letters?

5.) What's the dress code like for visits? Are jeans okay? I know I can't show too much skin.

6.) What's the biggest envelope size I can send? Also, what CAN'T I send? (i.e. ribbons, string, stickers, etc.)

7.) Can pictures be taken when I visit him? Also, do I bring the camera or is it provided?


Those are the questions I have for now. I'm sure I'll have a load more. I was going to call Walpole and ask them all of these but you all seem to be MUCH more helpful. Thanks!!

1.) Do I have to make an appointment to see him? If so, how does that work?

Yes you have to call and make an appointment to see him.


2.) Can I send him books through Barnes & Noble? I could when he was in county.

No books, not that I remember
3.) What is the address I use to send letters? I know I need his W#.

MCI Ceder Junction @ Walpole
Yes need his W# and block would help
4.) If I can send him books, would I need his W# and the same address I use for letters?

5.) What's the dress code like for visits? Are jeans okay? I know I can't show too much skin.
Jeans are ok, not too much skin. Female gaurds do most of the checking and they can be strict. The male gaurds don't say so much for the obvious reasons. My wife was denied once for a shirt too tight
6.) What's the biggest envelope size I can send? Also, what CAN'T I send? (i.e. ribbons, string, stickers, etc.)
I think 8x10? No stickers or anything like that
7.) Can pictures be taken when I visit him? Also, do I bring the camera or is it provided?

No pictures at visit or provided. The visits are behind the glass through a pay phone type setup

I was at Walpole over a year ago, but things are pretty much the same. Stay by him if you can Good luck

Thank you sooo much. That really helped. I'm staying by him. I'm not going anywhere.
