Has any one ever went to visit a loved one at WaySide-or-North County Correctional Facility? If so any information about the place is appreciated. I've already visited the web site on lasd.org but it didnt tell me much about the visiting guidelines-and since PTO always seems to answer my ?'s I though I'd ask my fellow PTO'ers. My man will be thier for about another 2 months and I really want to be here for him as much as I could-so I am really hoping I can go and visit him this weekend- but I'm not sure if I need a visiting form completed prior to my visit? :confused: ????
PLEASE HELP!!!! :thumbsup:

From what I remember Wayside, or Pitchess Detention Center a visting form is not needed. I got there at about 7:30 am you have to stand in line fill out the form with his information on it then you wait in line get searched then take a bus up to the detention center they will tell you what bus to get on and so fourth then you go in a room they check your ID ahain and tell you what phone to sit at, (non contact) then you can be there for I think its an hour but that will be his visit for the entire weekend!

I think thats it! Good Luck!

Thankyou austins girl - I really want to see my man. Saturday will be a week since I've seen him and now that I can I want to go and visit him as much as possible~~>(cause once he catches the train he will be far far away) :(
Ive heard a couple differant visiting stories from people who have gone to visit someone up there-but yours seems like the best one so far...how long ago has it been since you went to see someone over thier?

I use to go there every weekend to visit my friend. He's there now. But i really dont talk to him. Visiting there is not bad. You get two half hour visits or 1 1 hour visit per weekend. The bad part is the no contact. The lines usually get long arounf 10 so try to be there early. Youll fill out a form and then like austingirl said you get on a bus for like a 10 drive up the hill. There you go and wait for them to tell you where to go. Its not bad.

I Heard There Was A Form That Must Be Filled Out Prior To The Visit That Had To Be Signed By The Prisoner...is That True?

10-14-2004, 01:13 PM
No. I never had to do that. The only form they have you fill out is when you get there. you have to have there name and booking #. Anyone can just show up for visits.

No the form that has to be signed by the inmate and approved is for State Prisons not county jails. Wayside is a county jail so you don't have to go through an approval process.

I went there every weekend before my man got transferred to a state. Get there early because the lines do get long!

Have a good visit!

oh yea you either get 2- 1/2 hour visits (1 sat and 1 sun) or you can have 1- 1 hour visit sat OR sun

If you are you don't need a visiting form just your driver license no dress code and you visit for 1hr one day or you can break it to 2 30minutes on saturday and sunday, you visit behind the glass it okay I guess it's alot better than LA County Jail...

Not for me personally, but I have seen women and overheard them talking from standing in line and I know they come from like the Los Angeles area, I tried myself to route a trip, but it is hard as heck! :hmm:

I see you live in that area, do you know of what buses come from like the Santa Clarita Station that go that way and also go back down to Los Angeles?

Any info would help! Thanks!

You take the Metrolink Antelope Valley train and get off at the Newhall station. You'll see a lot of girls waiting for the Santa Clarita bus line #1 heading towards Six Flags. The bus stop is right in front of the train station (you don't even have to cross the street) and you could get on the bus for free with your train ticket. You get off somewhere along Hasley Canyon Rd and just follow the girls to the Sherrif's bus which takes you to the Facility.

I just followed the girls my first time. My friend got the instructions from the inmate reception center. They gave her a copy of the directions. I would call and ask them to get a copy. (213)473-6100 Good luck!

well i my brother is in wayside and no you do not have to fill out a visiting form,just take your I.D,but be there early,way before 8am,because there is a long line and long wait...and you might not be able to see him....

KUBANALUVSDOOMS
04-30-2007, 09:31 PM
No, you will not need to fill out a visiting form. Make sure you take a valid California picture I.D. My man was in wayside for about 5 months... When he was in there was when all the latino on blacks riots started to the point where they had to segregate...and started the 30min. visits due to the amount of latino inmates getting visits. Its not so...bad! I would say get there by 6a.m, the line is huge. When I would visit I would try to get there in time for the first bus. Good luck. Hope this helps...


As for Mens Central Jail, what a hassle it is just to get a 15min. visit. Thank goodness my man was only there for 2weeks tops. My boy was just in there about 2 months ago for violation to his probation and was released early, from my understanding, over-crowding.
I do believe county is more violent than prison.
Since my man has been in prison, its been harder on me, due to denial of visits. Although, it has helped my man besides the loneliness to become more mature to his situation and on having a new perspective on life.

This is my month. =]].
After 1 year, his last year...I`m sure of it! He will never and I will repeat NEVER have to see those 4 walls again. This is one hardship that has changed the both of us for the better.

you should get there early... doors open at 8am but you should be there no later than 7 because the lines get extremely long! the process takes up atleast half your day! its one exit after magic mtn pkwy. youll see a sign that says pitchess detention center and you follow the signs. its much faster if you dont take a purse and just take in whats neccessary maybe a pen and just your keys unless you have kids ofcourse. They used to give an hour visiting but now they only give 30 min. visiting is on sat. and sun. 8am - 2pm. i have 2 friends in wayside. one is east facility and the other in supermaxx (nccf).

mine was at east and it gets crowded. i think saturday is less crowded than sundays. and depending if he is general population or with the surenos. i've waited about 45 minutes before they actually brought them out. other times i waited about 15 minutes. the windows are small and have wire between them.

My husband is there. East facility. I usually wait 45 montues before going to the visiting room. Once there, it takes about 10 mintues for them to come out. I dont know why, but lately they only let me see him 30 minutes, not an hour :(

My husband waited there too for his parole hearing....I suggest you just go visit, he'll get his hearing 14 days after his been there

Mine is in Pitches. He likes it better there than super max. I think he is south. It is small and is a tester program for guys over 40. NO POLITIC. It is absolutely not allowed. I police will remove you in 20 min. Very nice as far as jails go. You can go up every Saturday and Sunday and every major holiday. It is COLD up there and windy… take a big coat and scarf.

East Max visiting is a pain no matter when you go, but earlier is definately better.

The LASD Inmate Info line is answered by inmates, so you never know if you're gonna get someone w/ a bad attitude or someone who's in a good mood...plus the information that they have is limited.

The LASD doesn't provide the reason for arrest anymore (they used to) all they tell you is if it's a misdemeanor or a felony. I don't know the extent of the info that the imnates are privied to, but I wouldn't think it's any more than what you can get online.

05-31-2008, 12:31 PM
There's also another off ramp you can take to wayside too I think it's called haleys. I haven't been there in a awhile since my man was sent to salinas. When you exit off that exit then you make a left turn and at the next light make another left turn and then next light make a right and you are there. Some people say visiting on saturdays is better because it's less people but there are times where it's crowed as well. Just keep your figure crossed.

Check out lasd.org
It gives you information of where your loved one is and what the visiting regulations are as well as mail too. It gives you all his case info and where he is placed, just click the inmate information tab on the left side.

I have driven up there the past 3 weekends... I have always gotten their eairly but I notice when I get out, usually around 11... there is NO LINE!! Its just up to you what time you want to be out of there. I have gotten their at 8am and been in a line from the begining of the parking lot and I am still out of their by 11am. It doesnt take that long, at least with my experience last month. First time ever visiting somone in jail and I can honestly say I have had no issues at Pitchess Detention center. You cant bring your cell phone and no bottle openers on your keys. They also search your purse,if you bring one, and you cant have anything with a mirror, eyelash curler or anything glass (fountation) I always bring a purse and just keep a book my wallet and a pen...Security is never an issue with me.

With my experience the line moves pretty good.. like I stated I am always out of there by 11 reguardless of what time I get their. I only go on saturdays because sundays is his time with the family :)

Hes at the East facility, I have never waited more than 15 min from the time I check in at East facility to see him. I am always in the line against the wall, not the line on the benches, seems like that line takes longer. I just check in and they given a number to a window and magically he appears!! Where is your loved one at?? I have only been to the east facility.

They have vending machines inside the bus loading area, so bring some change I always get thirsty :)

I dont know if any of this helps, seems like you got some other great replys. Any questions I can answer let me know!!!

Oh if you decided to exit on Magic Mt Pkwy Pitchess detention turn off with be on your left, if you coming from the north bound 5, Signs are posted but I missed it at first... there is a big picture of a sherrif star on the turn off to pitchess detention.. Hope all this helps!!! STAY STRONG!

Hi,
I'm new to this forum.
My son is in PDC East.
We were hoping for him to be release today, but he was sentenced to 5 more months.

My question is...
There is a sign on the door at the visitor center about a T.A.L.K. program?
Something to do with children visiting their fathers.
Does anyone know about this? I did not have a pen to get the phone number.

My son has a 2 year old boy whos mother passed away in February.
I would like them to see each other than at the window. (The little guy
would not be up for the normal ordeal we adults go through).
I don't won't him to forget his dad.

Thanx

Hi, I'm sorry I don't know about the talk program, but I just wanted to say that I've taken my 2year old to see my boyfriend when he was at wayside & he did ok. I usually brought some paper & crayons for him to color, and some toys & snacks. He'd get on the phone & talk his head off. He loved going. He'd get a little bored sometimes, but all in all, he was pretty good.

waysidelakes
06-13-2008, 12:28 AM
Thanks for the reply.

But I don't think regular visiting would work for the little guy.
He doesn't speak yet and may be autistic... very hard to control
with a short attention span.

I'll get the number when I go up there Saturday, but most likely
the program is no longer available (the info is on the same sign
that lists the cashiers hours... which is gone also).

We stopped downtown to put money on his book last weekend
but my wife said there was a hundered people in line.
She ended up going on Monday morning.

They make everything hard on the families. Only one way/place to
give money. One place to park for $7.
It really sucks.

One hour a weekend. They used to allow you to take both 30 minute visits in one day for an hour visit but that's not the case anymore! I know....sucks!! At least since he got 80% he may qualify for half time with the bridging program if he is eligible. Good luck sweetie! :)

Thanks again for the info. :)
The womens jail is close to my route home from work.
I might give that a try.

I wrote the the number for the T.A.L.K. program, but it is only at the South Facility on Saturdays. The number is 661-295-8050. Maybe that could be of help to someone.

Yesterday was very emotional for us all. It was the first visit since his courtdate.
November seems so far away.
We got there at 7:00 am and saw him at 9:12. It was the fastest time yet.
Just got to get there early.

I chose the name 'waysidelakes' because my son and I would go fishing in the area
at either Castaic Lake or Piru. So ironic.

We got him a calling card and are waiting for his call today.
But we won't be celebrating Fathers Day this year.

Also a quick question...
I've been reading about the virtual phone numbers for inmates to use and pre-paid collect calling cards. Do anyone know which service works or works best for wayside?
The collect calls we get are through AT&T and they don't come thru.

FYI - If you do go to Lynwood - they charge $3.00 to park, even if you are only there for a minute - but it's better than going downtown to Men's Central, there it's $7.00.

You can always try parking across the street near the bailbonds (not in the parking lot) but on the street directly across from Tower 2. It's 1 hour parking...free! That's where I used to park. It's best to go on non visiting days or after visiting hours. Best of luck! = )

I went to Lynwood this evening... way too easy!

Getting there after their normal business hours I didn't have to pay for parking.
I walked right to up the cashier window, (no waiting), took care of business,
and walked back to my car, all in about 5 minutes!
Nice!

The cashier was even friendly! (The cashiers downtown seemed to hired
based on rudeness.)

You take the Metrolink Antelope Valley train and get off at the Newhall station. You'll see a lot of girls waiting for the Santa Clarita bus line #1 heading towards Six Flags. The bus stop is right in front of the train station (you don't even have to cross the street) and you could get on the bus for free with your train ticket. You get off somewhere along Hasley Canyon Rd and just follow the girls to the Sherrif's bus which takes you to the Facility.

I just followed the girls my first time. My friend got the instructions from the inmate reception center. They gave her a copy of the directions. I would call and ask them to get a copy. (213)473-6100 Good luck!


can i still use this way to get up there?

I doesn't much surprise me that they wouldn't discuss medical issues with you...there is a huge Federal penalty for doing that, now. On the other hand, your brother's health is way too important to sit back and let them do nothing.

First, call the jail Watch Commander. If that doesn't work, call anyone else who will listen, including the news. Don't stop trying, your brother's health is too important.

Awhile ago, I posted this contact info for people to call in outrageous situations:

Call the public contact desk at Sheriff's Headquarters at: (323) 267-4800 and demand to file a complaint. (phone number from sheriff's web site)

Or, try calling the head guy in charge of the jails:
Chief Alexander R. Yim, Correctional Services Division, (213) 893-5018
(number from from: //lacounty.info/omd/q3_2007/cms1_068870.pdf)

There is another way too. you take the blue line to 7th & metro center and then get on the red line to north hollywood. from the north hollywood station you take the 224 to the sylmar metrolink station. Then you get on the Santa clarita transit #8 to McBean transit center. From there you take the #1 to hasley canyon road. I know this way works.... I do it every weekend.

Since the doctors in the jail "approved" him for the shoes, they are supposed to let you (or anyone) bring the shoes. Unfortunately, I can’t remember the exact brand and the person who would know works the morning shift. His name is Deputy John Mcnicholas (he is the medical liaison) and he should be able to assist you – (main number: 213-974-4921 or 974-4916). He is there during morning shift (appx 6am-2pm, M-F). The medical services might be helpful as well - 213-893-5445 (9am-5pm M-F). I am not sure how much they cost. If your brother is indigent, inmate services will sometimes be able to assist getting the shoes. Lt. Ibelle is the person to contact for that. If you continue to have problems, or they won't listen, you can call me. My name is Mary - 213-977-9500 x 281.

I hadn't heard of the used book angle, but the sheriff's policy is that books must come from " a publisher or book store." Used books are a great idea to save money. I've used abebooks.com to buy books for myself in the past. I don't see why they wouldn't send books to the jail.

South Bay
06-25-2009, 10:40 AM
The policy of which Grayworldangel speaks indeed provides that:

"Hardbound books, magazines, and paperbacks may be received by inmates if sent directly from the publisher or a recognized major distributor. These items will be inspected by mail room personnel."

This is the policy currently in effect for the Men’s Central Jail (and Pitchess Detention Facility – South). In a recent conversation I had with Lt. Robbie Ibelle (who is in charge of Inmate Services for the entire LA County jail system), he told me that some of the separate facilities have slightly different rules on books (such as no hardbound books allowed in some facilities [Twin Towers]).

The policy restricting books, magazines, and newspapers to only those received from publishers and distributors is called the “publisher’s only” rule, and in some correctional systems is strictly enforced to include only publishers and/or major book chains (such as Amazon, Borders, and Barnes & Noble), and is sometimes restricted to online book purchases (so for instance, although books would be allowed to ordered from Borders, they would be allowed only from their online sales, and not from one of their bookstores).

The reason behind these policies is to prevent contraband (drugs, cash, etc.) from being sent into the jails (and more specifically, to keep the flow of mail going by not requiring mailroom personnel to have to thoroughly inspect each and every magazine, book or newspaper received). By limiting the sender to publishers and/or recognized vendors, a balance is struck in that the prisoners receive the reading material, and the mailroom personnel do not have to spend an inordinate amount of time inspecting any one item.

Some correctional systems have eliminated the allowance of reading materials sent from bookstores, because crafty friends and family of prisoners have been known to purchase the items at the bookstore, then quickly place the contraband into one of the just purchased items (or before purchase), and then have the bookstore send the package directly from their place of business, thus complying with the more liberal version of the “publisher’s only” rules.

To determine the exact rule in effect in a specific jail in LA County, contact Lt. Ibelle,* who in turn will put you in touch with the Captain, Lieutenant, or other official at the facility in question for further info about their specific rule on the receipt of books, magazines, and/or newspapers.

I recently spoke with a Sgt. Rodriguez at Pitchess South, who (after much effort, including having to find the policy then in effect and call me back) confirmed that their facility allows hardbound books to be received. The practice at South also provides that the book package comes in unopened from the mailroom, and that the prisoner is called out on a pass to receive it. It’s then first opened and inspected in front of the prisoner (like incoming legal mail is processed), and the books are given to the prisoner (with the packaging being retained for disposal by Sheriff’s personnel). Other non-downtown facilities should work the same way (e.g., NCCF, Century, Mira Loma, etc.). (The books I sent to South came directly from a local bookstore, with a Barnes & Noble shipping label affixed.)

Bottom line is that it shouldn’t matter that the books are in used condition, only that they have proper labeling indicating their origin is from a publisher or bookstore.

With respect to the “recognized major distributor” requirement, I believe that when arranging for the books to be sent, just make sure the sender has proper labeling indicating that they are a commercial vendor and hope for the best (if the vender is, for instance. “Harry’s Used Books” located in say, Poughkeepsie, NY). If possible, use the larger book companies, and also have the books sent so that some form of tracking is involved (such as employed by UPS), so that you can at least be assured as to the day the book package is received at the jail (and don’t be surprised if it takes up to a week for the books to actually reach the prisoner after arrival at the jail). (In my experience, books that arrived at the Sheriff’s PO Box address downtown on a Thursday, were distributed to the prisoner the following Monday at Pitchess South.

When dealing with LA County (as with any correctional facility), sometimes the right and the left hands are working against each other, so some facilities may have no problem whatsoever with books sent from a small unknown vender, while other facilities may disallow the book package alltogether. It's sort of like shooting craps (or playing the lottery), so in the end, sometimes all you can do is hope that the odds are in your favor on that particular day. (But as more and more packages are received from venders such as usedbooks.com, then they become more and more recognized.)

If a street address is required by the shipper, you may use the Men’s Central Jail address of:

Prisoner name & number
441 Bauchet Street
Los Angeles, CA 90012

(I believe that mail/books may also be sent directly to each facility’s address, but may delay delivery as perhaps all mail may then be routed back to the main mailroom on Bauchet Street—only to then be sent back to the facility after confirmation as to the prisoner’s location. Anyone with further info as to how the processing of mail actually occurs now is the time to chirp in with your knowledge.)

If possible, try to have only softbound books sent because some of the other facilities (Twin Towers) do not allow prisoners to possess hardbound books; thus even those inmates who are temporarily transferred to Twin Towers for medical reasons, will have the hardbound books taken away (perhaps put with the prisoner’s stored personal property or, more likely, just tossed out).

*Lt. Ibelle may be contacted at:

Phone number: 213-893-5111 (or 213-893-5882)
Email address: ribelle@lasd.org (ribelle@lasd.org)

Good Luck, at please let us others know whether any used books you may order for a prisoner in the LA County jail system arrive safely and are actually delivered to the prisoner without hassle.

Are you looking for an actual form CDC-602, or a county jail complaint form? If it's the CDC form, it's here http://www.prisonlaw.com/pdfs/appeal.pdf . If by "602" you want a county complaint form, you can ask for one of those at any of the jails.

grayworldangel,

Thanks for the above post and the link to the COMPLETE version of Title 15, as I didn't know it was available online. Someone (or a computer) spent a lot of effort to scan an entire 559-page hard copy version into computer format.

(For you county jail observers, please note that Division 1 of the Title 15 version referenced above by grayworldangel contains the regulations applicable to CA county jails. They are found in Subchapter 4, sections 1000 - 1282, and are entitled "Minimum Standards for Local Detention Facilities.")

The CDCR edition of Title 15 (Division 3), the version required to be furnished to every prisoner at the time of entry into the prison system, is available online from the CDCR at this link: http://www.cdcr.ca.gov/Regulations/Adult_Operations/docs/Title15-2008.pdf (http://www.cdcr.ca.gov/Regulations/Adult_Operations/docs/Title15-2008.pdf).

Please note the CDCR also has older versions of Title 15 still available online (and a Google search of “CDCR Title 15” brings up the 2006 version), so always be careful to download (or consult) only the latest edition.

multifarious,

Are you sure about the phones? I've looked at the phone contract, and it looks like only half the phones *might* be recorded. I'd be really impressed if GTL has technology to record all 4,000 telephones all the time.

The phone contract is at:
http://file.lacounty.gov/bc/q4_2005/cms1_037051.pdf

The section I found about recording says:

2.12 Call Recording Requirements
Contractor’s automated operator inmate telephone system shall provide capability to record inmate telephone calls at Sheriff’s Department custodial and detention facilities, and at Probation Department detention and camp facilities, shown in Exhibit 1 (County Custodial, Detention and Camp Facilities) of this Statement of Work. The Contractor’s automated operator inmate telephone system shall provide capability to record any inmate telephone calls except for courthouse lock-ups and patrol stations.

The telephone system must be capable of recording at least 50% of all inmate telephone calls. Calls must be recorded in their entirety, up to the 120 minute time limit for inmate calls. Recordings must be selectable by telephone instrument, group of instruments, facility, or called number. Extension of the requirement to record inmate calls from courthouse lock-ups, and patrol stations is not planned at this time.

It depends on the sheriffs doing visitng, but I have gone with my mother-in-law, my step-son, and my son. So there was two adults and two kids.

Thank u for the info..i was also wondering where is the visitatin center for south facility since the address is different from north and east facility,or is it all in one area. :(

It's all in one area to begin with. Once you get your pass it will have a big number on it that corresponds to the four lines for the buses (1-4). Just get in the line with the number on your pass and the bus will take you where you need to go.

I am so new to this my husband is located at the pitchess detention center also known as "wayside" south facility i checked their web and it doesn't mention anything about south, only north and east. I read on one of the post that they are allowed 3 adult visitors will my 2 year old son count as one adult because two of my brother in laws wants to come visit also. Any information on this will help thank you.

I and others pondered about this same issue back in May 2009 in this post, which has much information about Pitchess South: http://mail.prisontalk.com/forums/showthread.php?p=4653906#post4653906 (http://mail.prisontalk.com/forums/showthread.php?p=4653906#post4653906).

It turns out that the Sheriff’s web page about South is not linked to their main web pages, and it was found only through further investigation by PTO member Jonsgurl (http://mail.prisontalk.com/forums/member.php?u=185652), who posted about it here: http://mail.prisontalk.com/forums/showthread.php?p=4655961#post4655961 (http://mail.prisontalk.com/forums/showthread.php?p=4655961#post4655961).

If you go to Pitchess Detention Center on Old Castaic Road (the address is on the website, it's near Magic Mountain), you will stand in a line with everyone, after you pass through security, you take your visitor slip to the window, at the window they will give you a piece of paper which will tell you your bus number. It's all the same place, it's the buses on the inside that take you to the different facilities (North, South, East, NCCF).

Your visitor slip will also have his module number, each facility has more than one module, if you can't figure it out the Sheriffs will help you.

I hope this helps.

You're right, there's not any visiting information on the South facility web page; although there is a link to general visiting info: http://www.lasd.org/lasd_services/custody-services/custody.html (http://www.lasd.org/lasd_services/custody-services/custody.html).

You may want to call South Facility and ask about the visiting rules, their number is:

When you first get there you wait in a line that looks like an amusement park line. Then you go through the metal detectors (no phones, no mirrors, no cigarettes, no lighters, etc.) once you go through the metal detectors you turn in your pass to the window (there are a bunch of little booths). They will then give you your pass back as well as another pass. Then you walk through to the area where you wait for the bus (in lines that correspond to the number on your pass).

south is supposed to be the "easiest" dorms have big windows. u go out to yard about 3-4 times a week. but its still an la county jail. deputies tend to be more disrespectful because many inmates in south are already sentenced for less than a year; therefore the deputies know inmates wont retaliate much. but jail politics are in full effect nonetheless.

I don't know whether a call to the Sheriff's Department letting them know a prisoner is ready to "catch the chain" will make any difference, as the Sheriff's Dept should be quite aware of those prisoners who have been sentenced and are waiting to be transported to state prison.

As it turns out, it's not even the fault of the Sheriff's Dept that sentenced prisoners are stacked up in county jails for months. Under Penal Code section 4016.5, after the county sheriffs’ notify the CDCR that sentenced prisoners are ready for delivery (by the sheriff) to state prison, the CDCR must reimburse counties for any delays in accepting the prisoners. The statute provides in part that:

“A city or county shall be reimbursed by the Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation for costs incurred resulting from the detention of a state prisoner, a person sentenced or referred to the state prison, or a parolee and from parole revocation proceedings when the detention meets any of the following conditions:

(d) The detention results from a new commitment, or a referral pursuant to Section 1203.03, once the abstract of judgment has been completed, the department’s intake control unit has been notified by the county that the prisoner is ready to be transported pursuant to Section 1216, and the department is unable to accept delivery of the prisoner. The reimbursement shall be provided for each day starting on the day following the fifth working day after the date of notification by the county, if the prisoner remains ready to be delivered and the department is unable to receive the prisoner. If a county delivers or attempts to deliver a person to the department without the prior notification required by this paragraph, the date of the delivery or attempted delivery shall be recognized as the notification date pursuant to this paragraph.”

http://law.onecle.com/california/penal/4016.5.html (http://law.onecle.com/california/penal/4016.5.html)

So it stands to reason that the sheriffs’ departments are well aware of prison commitments, as the only way they are reimbursed by the CDCR for holding sentenced prisoners in their county jails is by officially notifying the CDCR of the commitment. After that, it’s all just a waiting game.

If you do call them, please let us know the results.

My husband was sentenced to State on 10-19, was SP4 a week after that, and was sent to Reception a week after that. He was gone in 2 weeks....LA County is generally rushing them through now, because once they are CDCR committed, the County doesn't get kickbacks....so they don't want them there.
If they have been sitting there awhile, perhaps CDCR doesn't have a bed. With the pressure on CDCR to reduce overcrowding, and the lawsuit in supreme court, they are scrambling in State to accomodate everyone. Have faith, and trust me...be careful what you wish for.
I wanted my man to go upstate already to get this time going, but now that he's gone and I have no visits or calls, I'm wishing I would've had a few more weeks :(

I have taken the bus to Wayside from long beach. It is a mission, but it is possible. to do it, you take the blue line to the 7th metro station. then take the red line to the north hollywood station. from there you take the 224 (towards olive view) to truman and hubbard. You then walk north on hubbard 1/4 of a block to the sylmar metrolink station. from there you take the santa clarita 8 to mcbean transit center. from there you take the santa clarita 2 to castaic. I don't know the exact street you get off on, but if you ask the bus driver they will tell you. Then you have a 20-30 minute walk to the jail.

also, they will definitely move inmates around literally for no reason at all. i'm not being sarcastic. i know last time we were thinking my husband would likely be released in the next few days and then they moved him from mcj to pitchess south. i was freaking out trying to figure out what it "meant". don't think it meant anything at all. they just move them around sometimes. he was there 3 days before they put him back on the bus to irc for release (i know that part isn't the case for yours but it shows how random it can be)

Questions, please help!

My son was at Wayside for the past 8 months, he was sentenced on Tuesday. They transfered him to Twin Towers last night and he said they already gave him his "bus pass." He also said that one of the cops told him he might be on the bus to reception on Sunday.

His status is still SP (no number after the code).

Is it possible they will move him that quickly (by Sunday)?

humboldtsweetie
12-18-2009, 01:30 PM
it could happen. if he has been given a bus pass then he will probably be moved soon. although he might first be moved to a reception prison (in northern california, usually they go to san quentin first for about 2 weeks, then to another facility). although my husband actually got his pass and went on like the 2nd or 3rd bus out. we were hanging in there waiting for a good few weeks before he left
as far as pictures go, my baby took everything with him, didn't have to leave anything behind.

He could be sent to any of the reception centers (delano, wasco, chino, or lancaster) There's no way to tell until he goes. Once he's there he will need to send you a SIGNED visiting form and then you will have to fill it out and send it back to the prison. You cannot visit until you have been approved, and a lot of the time they make it out of reception before their visiting applications get approved.

It just depends on where he goes. Some people have been approved in 30 days and some as long as six months. If you are approved in reception before he is sent to mainline your approval should follow him wherever he goes. If not you will have to reapply once he is mainlined. You will only have to update your visiting form every two years after your fist approval. Hope this helps! ;)

mhmm positive! he had gone to san quentin first for a few weeks, then once they sent him back to folsom he was on fish row for only about another couple weeks. i think it usually takes 2-4 weeks btu i guess he just got lucky. could be because he had been there before and was only transfered back to county for like a month or so.

Hello Guestme84,

The limitations are in there every facility is diffrent but if you look under Discipline assement ( For Example MCJ) It speaks of the offense and the amount of days of good time credit lossed for that offense. The same for another example the Century Dentention Facilty if you look under the discipline review log it talks about the violation and then the amount days lost etc. It's a lot of imformation but you'll find it there. I hope this helps.

Parent Education (TALK): In an
effort to establish and/or rebuild
mother/child relationships with fami-
lies, parenting classes are available to
all female inmates. TALK, (Teaching
and Loving Kids), a higher level of
the parenting program, is a contact
visitation between the inmate/mom
and her child. The TALK program
began at Twin Towers in August
1998. Each Saturday, adult guardians
bring the inmate/mom's children to
Twin Towers for a two-hour contact
visit. At the close of each TALK
class, children return to the guardians,
and then the inmate/mom's parenting
skills and behaviors during the visit
are discussed. This year, 95 women
participated and 191 children visited
their moms.

As you know any books/magazines are to be sent via vendor/publisher. Please refer to the LA County website under inmate information. This gives all the specifics as to what inmates can/cannot receive as well as shipping information.

Hope this helps!

You would put his name and CDC number in the name box
Address box you would put his PO Box and housing info

I don't know about Borders, but I've sent things putting the booking number in "Address Line 1" box, and the street address in "Address Line 2" box. Use the NCCF street address on The Old Road, not the Terminal Annex baloney--that way the address fits in standard on-line address pages.

I would call the business number and then the chaplain if they don't help you at the business number. I know at CRDF to give glasses to an inmate all you have to do is take them to visiting and fill out a paper and give it to the visiting staff. I don't know how it works elsewhere though.

A prisoner escaped from LA County about ten years ago using the picture of actor Eddie Murphy, so now jail officials worry that another prisoner could use his or her own picture to pull of a similar escape.

The prisoner was representing himself (pro per), so he also had access to plastic court transcript covers and had crafted his ID using a portion of the clear plastic. The pro per prisoners no longer have access to the plastic covers, and I believe the sandwiches provided to all prisoners no longer come in plastic baggies.

Here's an article about the incident: http://abcnews.go.com/US/story?id=92882&page=1 (http://abcnews.go.com/US/story?id=92882&page=1). He was caught soon thereafter.

Just because you failed to appear does not automatically mean that there's a warrant out on the case. In recent years, the Legislature and courts have adopted a civil process to address traffic violations for which a defendant fails to appear.

Instead of automatically issuing a warrant to later ensure a defendant's eventual appearance in court, the courts oftentimes divert the case into civil assessment proceedings, wherein a defendant has to pay an additional $300 on top of the original fine, and the money is collected by collection agencies (and his or her driver's license is suspended until payment of the fine).

Penal Code section 1214.1(c) provides that:

"If a civil assessment is imposed under this section, no bench warrant or warrant of arrest shall be issued with respect to the failure to appear at the proceeding for which the assessment is imposed or the failure to pay the fine or installment of bail. An outstanding, unserved bench warrant or warrant of arrest for a failure to appear or for a failure to pay a fine or installment of bail shall be recalled prior to the subsequent imposition of a civil assessment."

http://law.onecle.com/california/penal/1214.1.html (http://law.onecle.com/california/penal/1214.1.html)

For all you know, the court has recalled the warrant and issued the civil assessment. To find out what has happened, call or go to the court and check with the clerk (or just ask to view the file and check for yourself).

The policy of which Grayworldangel speaks indeed provides that:

"Hardbound books, magazines, and paperbacks may be received by inmates if sent directly from the publisher or a recognized major distributor. These items will be inspected by mail room personnel."

This is the policy currently in effect for the Men’s Central Jail (and Pitchess Detention Facility – South). In a recent conversation I had with Lt. Robbie Ibelle (who is in charge of Inmate Services for the entire LA County jail system), he told me that some of the separate facilities have slightly different rules on books (such as no hardbound books allowed in some facilities [Twin Towers]).

The policy restricting books, magazines, and newspapers to only those received from publishers and distributors is called the “publisher’s only” rule, and in some correctional systems is strictly enforced to include only publishers and/or major book chains (such as Amazon, Borders, and Barnes & Noble), and is sometimes restricted to online book purchases (so for instance, although books would be allowed to ordered from Borders, they would be allowed only from their online sales, and not from one of their bookstores).

The reason behind these policies is to prevent contraband (drugs, cash, etc.) from being sent into the jails (and more specifically, to keep the flow of mail going by not requiring mailroom personnel to have to thoroughly inspect each and every magazine, book or newspaper received). By limiting the sender to publishers and/or recognized vendors, a balance is struck in that the prisoners receive the reading material, and the mailroom personnel do not have to spend an inordinate amount of time inspecting any one item.

Some correctional systems have eliminated the allowance of reading materials sent from bookstores, because crafty friends and family of prisoners have been known to purchase the items at the bookstore, then quickly place the contraband into one of the just purchased items (or before purchase), and then have the bookstore send the package directly from their place of business, thus complying with the more liberal version of the “publisher’s only” rules.

To determine the exact rule in effect in a specific jail in LA County, contact Lt. Ibelle,* who in turn will put you in touch with the Captain, Lieutenant, or other official at the facility in question for further info about their specific rule on the receipt of books, magazines, and/or newspapers.

I recently spoke with a Sgt. Rodriguez at Pitchess South, who (after much effort, including having to find the policy then in effect and call me back) confirmed that their facility allows hardbound books to be received. The practice at South also provides that the book package comes in unopened from the mailroom, and that the prisoner is called out on a pass to receive it. It’s then first opened and inspected in front of the prisoner (like incoming legal mail is processed), and the books are given to the prisoner (with the packaging being retained for disposal by Sheriff’s personnel). Other non-downtown facilities should work the same way (e.g., NCCF, Century, Mira Loma, etc.). (The books I sent to South came directly from a local bookstore, with a Barnes & Noble shipping label affixed.)

Bottom line is that it shouldn’t matter that the books are in used condition, only that they have proper labeling indicating their origin is from a publisher or bookstore.

With respect to the “recognized major distributor” requirement, I believe that when arranging for the books to be sent, just make sure the sender has proper labeling indicating that they are a commercial vendor and hope for the best (if the vender is, for instance. “Harry’s Used Books” located in say, Poughkeepsie, NY). If possible, use the larger book companies, and also have the books sent so that some form of tracking is involved (such as employed by UPS), so that you can at least be assured as to the day the book package is received at the jail (and don’t be surprised if it takes up to a week for the books to actually reach the prisoner after arrival at the jail). (In my experience, books that arrived at the Sheriff’s PO Box address downtown on a Thursday, were distributed to the prisoner the following Monday at Pitchess South.

When dealing with LA County (as with any correctional facility), sometimes the right and the left hands are working against each other, so some facilities may have no problem whatsoever with books sent from a small unknown vender, while other facilities may disallow the book package alltogether. It's sort of like shooting craps (or playing the lottery), so in the end, sometimes all you can do is hope that the odds are in your favor on that particular day. (But as more and more packages are received from venders such as usedbooks.com, then they become more and more recognized.)

If a street address is required by the shipper, you may use the Men’s Central Jail address of:

Prisoner name & number
441 Bauchet Street
Los Angeles, CA 90012

(I believe that mail/books may also be sent directly to each facility’s address, but may delay delivery as perhaps all mail may then be routed back to the main mailroom on Bauchet Street—only to then be sent back to the facility after confirmation as to the prisoner’s location. Anyone with further info as to how the processing of mail actually occurs now is the time to chirp in with your knowledge.)

If possible, try to have only softbound books sent because some of the other facilities (Twin Towers) do not allow prisoners to possess hardbound books; thus even those inmates who are temporarily transferred to Twin Towers for medical reasons, will have the hardbound books taken away (perhaps put with the prisoner’s stored personal property or, more likely, just tossed out).

Phone number: 213-893-5111 (or 213-893-5882)
Email address: ribelle@lasd.org (ribelle@lasd.org)

When my Husband was in Twin Towers I would hang on to my things until they called my group..I would sit outside and read..The lockers are located inside..When turning in your pass ask them if they can give you an idea what time youll be called..MCJ moved a lot faster then TT..I never got there real early on the weekends but always before the break..I wouldnt be called until after they came back.. I usually waited about 4 hours..Some floors fill up faster then others..I liked going during the week after work the best..Yes everthing gets locked in the locker..I would bring my purse and something to read..

thanks for everyone's patience with all my questions. if you sit outside and read - is there a risk you won't know when they call you? it sounds like i'll have a chance right before i get to see him to put things in the locker? i'm thinking like at pitchess that if you wait 2 hours in the line and then have stuff with you when you get up there that you can't bring in...you just wasted the whole 2 hours if you're by yourself and don't have someone to bring it to the car. i guess this is different.

he's a trusty so he can have visits everyday. problem is i guess visits stop at 6:00 durint the week and i work until that time so i can't get there in time. i wish i could! so i'll be stuck with weekends. i guess tomorrow i'll get there at 6:00 AM and see how that goes. it seems like TT visits are likely worse than MCJ or Pitchess in terms of how long i'll be there waiting. oh well! at least i get to see him.

So I'm a newbie. I just found this site by googling "wayside" and I have some questions. My man was picked up on a warrant for driving with a suspended license. I didn't know that he was at LBPD until they were ready to transfer him to County. The day after he was picked up, i left work early to get to county to try and see him and pick up his property. OMG! What a headache! I get there and they tell me that he is at Central and that I have to wait in the visitors line. I wait the 2 hours just to get up front and have the Sheriff tell me that I need the booking number which I left in the locker as I did NOT know that I needed it. I guess i thought they would just look it up for me. Grrr...he told me to go get it and I had to practically beg him to let me come back to the front of the line! Geez! So finally I return with the booking number for him to tell me that he is still in IRC so I cannot see him! :angry: I left. I decided that I would try back the next morning (Saturday). Trust me...I used all my internet resources to get as much information as possible as who to call, where to go etc. Anyway, I get there, wait in the long @$$ line in the cold for the Sheriff to tell me that he has been moved to Wayside! He proceeded to give me a map that I could not understand! :( After that long story and if anyone is still reading here are my questions:

1) How do I go about letting the system know that my man is certified 51/50 and needs his meds? (i read about the mental thingy on the lasd website but i'm still asking)

2) Should I just wait to hear from him to go visit just in case I have to deal with a whole lot more "red tape"? I hate the thought of not going as I would have to wait a whole other week to visit.

3) With his charge, does anyone have any idea how much time they will give him?

4) I left him $30 on his books. Is that enough? I'm hoping he will be smart and buy a phone card so he can call me. He likes to eat junk food so hopefully he's not just thinking about food!

5) I need his property because he has all of his paperwork I need as far as his medical condition goes. Can I get that on my visit?

Thank you for taking the time to read this and any assistance or advice will be greatly appreciated! I really miss my guy! He probably doesn't think that I miss him because I'm so hard on him but I do! Thanks again and God Bless you all!

yes phone calls are allowed from NCCF. there may different reasons for him not calling. they might not get phone time all the time. sometimes the deputies turn the phones off for no reason. hang in there, he'll call.

How long has your boyfriend been there?

A friend of mine there ha been in the hole for 2-3 weeks now because there was a riot between the inmates and the COs, but other than the letters I received from him, I haven't heard anything about it any where else.

My baby has been trying to get some Cheese Whiz for weeks now and he never gets it. Now this may sound petty, but he is a vegetarian (over 15 years) so he doesn't eat much in there as it is and has had to start eating meat to compensate his diet. Damn it just give the man his CHEESE :angry:!

Sorry had to vent. Going back to my corner now :(.

So I'm a newbie. I just found this site by googling "wayside" and I have some questions. My man was picked up on a warrant for driving with a suspended license. I didn't know that he was at LBPD until they were ready to transfer him to County. The day after he was picked up, i left work early to get to county to try and see him and pick up his property. OMG! What a headache! I get there and they tell me that he is at Central and that I have to wait in the visitors line. I wait the 2 hours just to get up front and have the Sheriff tell me that I need the booking number which I left in the locker as I did NOT know that I needed it. I guess i thought they would just look it up for me. Grrr...he told me to go get it and I had to practically beg him to let me come back to the front of the line! Geez! So finally I return with the booking number for him to tell me that he is still in IRC so I cannot see him! :angry: I left. I decided that I would try back the next morning (Saturday).

I can answer some of your questions. Thise phone cards are $10 bucks and I think it will probably get you about a 25 minute call. Let him have his food, they don't get much to eat on their meals. Call GTL or go to the website and set up your cell to take collect calls you will have to use your credit or debit card to put 25 or 50 dollars on your phone. You have to let him know there is money on his books because they won't tell him. I think you can only pick up property at the IRC, you can check the website for that information. I would think you need to call someone and avvise them of his condition. My baby i much happier (happier?) at PDC than at Twin Towers he says it is far cleaner and its a better atmosphere.

Google wayout2wayside. Also you can take metrolink to get there, there will be some walking involved once you get there but at least you get there.

So I am new to this page. My boyfriend was in LA coutny and is now being trasfered to wayside. How does that place run? is it the same or worse than in the towers?. how is wayside? in terms of danger?. Sorry for these questions just really concerned.

Mine says PDC is better, cleaner and better atmosphere. He also says the guards there are pretty cool and evryone has been nice when I visited. He started out at Supermax which he said was a bit scary but then he was moved to East which appears to be pretty laid back.

My son would use cheez-its, smash them up, add a little water and make a "cheese paste." -- Maybe that will help him get through until he can get his cheese whiz??
