I need any and all info on Richmond County CI. We are thinking of requesting a transfer to this county camp so that my boyfriend can be closer to myself and his family. Is this a good idea? What is visitation like? How are the inmates treated? Does it have AC?

Also, I'm looking for info on 1/2 way houses.

The only info I have is what I found on the DOC website.

Another thing...I used to have a phone number that family could call to request a transfer and I don't know what I did with it. If anyone has it please pass it along.

Thanks Guys!

FYI

My husband told me today, that his counselor said it takes up to 6 months for a transfer. If he does not have that long to go, it might not be worth the trouble.

Hello, my husband has been at R.C.C.I since April and as far as prisons go it is O.K. We are an interracial couple & get along well with most of the staff, but have had problems with a few, but that's just ignorance in life in general. As far as how they are treated, that depends on the staff also & there are a few with superiority complexes & took this job because they're parents didn't hug them enough or they got picked on in school & wanted some get back in life. They also only get 2 meals on the weekends, which I think is a ploy to fund their vending machine capital, I know they get at least $10 a week from me! There is no AC in the dorms & it is a work camp, so they go to work every day from about 8-4, mostly maintaining vacant lots around the Augusta area. Visitation is held Sat., Sun., & holidays from 9-1. It is held in a gym & you can hug & kiss your significant when you get there and when you leave, but no touching in between & they have cameras watching you. Hope this helps & good luck!

THis camp would be good if there was AC.....it is ridiculously hot during visitation so I could imagine wut it is like in the dorms....at least they leave m-f and get fresh air but it is hard work....
