***You can only order "clean" music for an inmate at CSP-Solano. They do not allow inmates to have any CDs with "Explicit" lyrics.


:) 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.


1st Quarter = January 1st - March 31st

2nd Quarter = April 1st - June 30th

3rd Quarter = July 1st - September 30th

4th Quarter = October 1st - December 31st


:) Release (Parole/Dress-Out) Clothing

Inmates scheduled for parole or awaiting discharge may receive

a release clothing package via U.S. Postal Service or common
carrier no earlier than 30 days prior to their scheduled parole or
discharge date. Inmate release clothing packages, limited to one
set of clothing, shall be retained in a secure location by the department
until their release.

05-14-2006, 01:21 PM
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
P.O. Box 4000
Vacaville, CA 95696-4000

The average wait for a response is 4-8 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)

************************************************** *****************************************

**Friday visiting suspended indefinitely 7/17/09**
You must ask the inmate if he is eligible. ***SPECIAL NOTE*** If you arrive at the prison and check-in ANY TIME after 3:30pm, you will have to wait until 5pm (sometimes later) for count to clear, before you will be allowed to see your inmate. Once you are in the door you cannot leave, so please be aware of this. If you want to visit on Fridays, I suggest you get there before 3pm.

For additional information on visiting days or hours, please contact the CSP-Solano Visiting Department at (707) 451-0182, ext. 3266.


:idea: From my own experience....

Institution Name: CSP-Solano - 2100 Peabody Road, Vacaville, CA 95687

Institution Yard: 1-4

Yard Level: 2/3

Appointment Required: Only for Non-Contact visits

Must Line up to Obtain a Number: YES, only if you have a contact visit.

Parking Lot Line Up:

Contact or Non-Contact: Both

Visiting Days and Hours: Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and designated Holidays

Length of Visit Allowed: 8am to 3:15pm on Saturday/Sunday, 1pm to 8pm on Friday

* Special Notes FOR CONTACT VISITS: :new: (as of APRIL 2008) At 7am we are allowed to drive onto the prison grounds (12pm on Friday afternoons). A CO will be standing at the front gate handing out passes (they FINALLY started doing things this way again! It's so much easier this way). Anyway, get your visitor's pass and fill it out. Then you must wait for your number to be called. They start calling numbers at 8am on Sat/Sun, and 1pm on Friday (sometimes a few minutes later) near the "Visiting Information Office". You will see all the other visitors waiting in this area. Then when they call your number, go into the Visiting Information office and check in. Get in line and when it's your turn, give the officer your ID and completed visitor's pass. After being processed, you will either be instructed to get into another line in that room (to go through the medal detector and into the first visiting room), or to go back outside and wait for the shuttle that takes visitors to the other side of the prison. It all depends which yard your inmate is on, but they will tell you were to go. There are two visiting rooms. Inmates housed on Yards 1&2 use the front visiting room. Inmates housed on Yards 3&4 use the visiting room on the back side of the prison. If your inmate is on Yard 3 or 4, you will have to ride the shuttle to get to that side of the prison. See below for details.

**If you are instructed to take the shuttle, you will wait outside and the shuttle will arrive. The officer will call your name and you will get on the bus. You will then be taken to the other side of the prison and get off. The officer will again call your name and give you back your visitor's pass and ID. You will go through a small room where you must take off your shoes and all metal items, and go through the medal detector. Then you will go sign in and go through several gates until you enter the visiting waiting room. Give the officer behind the glass your visitor's pass and ID and sit down in the waiting area. After your inmate is called, you will be given back your visitor's pass (they keep your ID), and then you will be let into the visiting room to wait for your loved one (sometimes they are already out there, sometimes you have to wait a few minutes). At the end of your visit, you go back up to the window and get your ID back. Follow all the other visitors, and you will go back through all the same gates and rooms, you must sign out and depending on how crowded it is, you'll have to pick up a bus pass. Go wait outside and the shuttle will come back to pick you up and take you back to the parking lot. Be aware that if you wait until the very end of visiting to leave, you may have to wait quite a long time before it will be your turn to ride the shuttle back to the parking lot. On crowded days, I've had to wait up to 40 minutes for my bus pass number to be called. But they try to get you back over there as quickly as possible. :thumbsup:

FOR NON-CONTACT VISITS ONLY: You DO NOT have to show up early and get a number if you have a non-contact visit. Don't bother waiting in the car line, etc., because it is not necessary. Just show up to the facility no less than 15 minutes before you scheduled visit. Go up to the Visiting Information Office and talk with one of the officers at the front desk. They will give you a special pass with NON CONTACT stamped at the bottom. Fill out all of the info and get back in line. They will check you in, you will go through the medal detector, and then you will be allowed to walk over to the non-contact visiting area. You will go into the same building as the visitors would come to see inmates on Yard 1&2. Give your pass and ID to the officer in the "bubble" and they will call you back up to the window when it is time for you to see your inmate. Sometimes the non-contact visits do not start on time, but don't worry, you will still get your full hour visit. You will walk back to your own personal booth. You will be on one side, the inmate on the other. It is very private, which is nice compared to non-contact visits at county jails. After your visit is over, go back to the "bubble" and get your pass and ID. Head back to the Visiting Information Office and sign out. Enjoy your visit!

** You can purchase photo ducets from the visiting room. The officer in the "bubble" will sell you ducets for $2.00 a piece. There is no limit to the number of ducets you can buy, but remember you can only bring $50 with you (and $20 extra per child). So save some money for food. :p


:help: Friendship House :help:

If you have any electronic keys or alarm/remote control door lock devices, you CANNOT bring them into the facility. You can go to the Friendship House (trailor on the left side of the visiting parking lot, look for the signs) and leave your keys/devices with the attendant there. She will check them in for you and when visiting is over you can go back to the friendship house and pick them up.
If you are not wearing the proper attire, you may visit the Friendship House and borrow clothes. They have both male and female attire, for adults and children. You can stop by and pick out an outfit. Just fill out a form, and once visiting is over you go back to the F.H. and change back into your original clothes.
If you are from out of town and have a suitcase, purse, etc., you can also leave those items at the F.H. and they will keep them safe for you until your visit is over.

Here is a summary of how F.V.s work at CSP-SOLANO. This info comes from our PTO member Face2Face (THANK YOU SO MUCH! :thumbsup:):

They will give your husband some papers to sign and then he will mail them to you....(a total of four pages) three will go back to the family visit coordinator and the orange one will go to the prison attention: CASHIER with the money for your food...they have to be returned 15 days prior to the visit date....

My visits have always been weekend ones so I arrive on Friday morning at 10AM and sit out front at the guard shack and wait for the coordinator to come...he will come in a white van and take your belongings and check your id and original marriage license (you have to bring the original for every fv) and then you go park your car in visiting section and walk up to the visiting check in...go through the medal detector like always and then he walks you down towards were the visiting is, in the big room. There are 4 or 5 (i think 4) apartments and they take you directly to the one you will be staying in...your husband will already be in there waiting for his lovely wife....:p

Then it's all you guys until Sunday morning at 9AM...there will be a form in there already to order your food for next time and the coordinator will call about 8AM to schedule your next family visit....during the night beginning at about 10PM they will start calling the phone what seems like to me every 2hrs until five in the morning....he will have to get up answer the phone and then walk to the door show his face and say his name and id #...

You can go outside in front of your housing area, but there is nothing out there I guess if you want to sit outside you can bring some chairs from within out...we have never sat outside...the apartments have two bedrooms a living room a kitchen and bathroom...there is a tv in the living room which is were the phone is....(what we do is put the mattress from the bedroom in the living room and chill in there) it is much nicer that way...there is a refrigerator, microwave, complete stove, dishes and utensils. You have to bring your own dish rags and dish soap. Also they dont give wash clothes so bring your own, but they do have towels. You can bring your own sheets and pillows if you like also and a can bring movies but make sure there not rated for your belongs i bring almost everything I need...i havent had any trouble so far...and lastly, the coordinator is Mr. Tigert and he is super super cool.
