NON-DESIGNATED YARDS

We've had several inquiries regarding non-designated yards.  Hopefully the following articles from the Prison Law Office will help answer some of your questions.  Also watch the video of Scott Kernan, CDCR Secretary, explaining what the transition will entail.

FAMILY VISITS DURING THE WEEK

For visitors and inmates that have Family Visits, if you are having trouble getting a weekend visit, try booking your visit during the week.

There seems to be more openings during the week than on the weekends.  Family Visits during the week is for three days and run from Tuesday-Thursday.

FOOD SALES
"IN LIEU OF FORMS"

At this time, VSP will no longer be accepting In Lieu of Forms.  This information has been provided to the MAC reps for posting for the general population, so inmates should be aware that they must be present in order to pick up any items, from now on, that they have ordered during a food sale fundraiser.

 

Inmates who have scheduled visits may elect to leave their visit early in order to come pick up their food sale items. However, if they elect not to do so or are unable to do so, they will forfeit any items ordered. So it may be best in such cases, if an inmate knows he will have a visit scheduled during an upcoming food sale fundraiser event, to not order items from that sale. Unfortunately it is not possible to predict what time an inmate should leave his visit/cut it short as each food is different in terms of length of time. Some end as early as 11:00 a.m. while others may last until nearly 4:00 p.m. Therefore, again, in such cases the inmate may elect to not order for that particular sale. There are a lot of opportunities for an inmate to donate funds to a food sale throughout the year. The dates are posted for the year typically by July of that fiscal year.
