One timea CO did show up at my JOB ( I had changed my license addy to the job) looking for me from me signing in.
In CA the passes we fill out have the address part blacked out so we don't have to fill out that part anymore. I heard someone once say the passes were just thrown in the trash so that is why we aren't to put our addresses on them anymore in case anyone picks them up

I had no idea so many men in prison do this until coming to this site! I thought my guy was just paranoid, but now I see that the tearing up and flushing is quite common!

It's not necessarily YOUR man's fault. Things can get pretty chaotic, especially in large dorm settings where you may have 40-50 guys hanging out. Some people just don't respect other people's privacy. There is intimidation and such. Frankly, it's usually not worth a full-fledged fight over the stuff.

There's a lot of stuff I learned during my own experience that I would have never guessed and loved ones can't be expected to know. Some of the realities are not pleasant.

I advise ladies NOT to send sexy photos or anything you consider remotely private, cause there just isn't any privacy.

As for visits, if you provide a photo ID, that is really all they should be able to require. Passports work great, because they don't have addresses, just names and photos. You can also get a regular state ID from the driver's license office and request it not have an address. You can also use some form of work ID, student ID, etc. There is really NO NEED for prison staff to have access to your home address. Anyone telling you otherwise is full of crock. If any of the above forms of ID are refused, I would take it up with the warden or assistant warden and explain your privacy concerns.

Parole is a different story. If your loved one submits a plan to parole to your residence, the parole department WILL NEED to verify that address.

none of it bothers me. who cares, so what. it's prison, we know that. the staff checks out my photos, then they go to him. I send him photos of other girls on the internet to pass around... mine he keeps. in 10 years only one guy wrote unsolicited but he was nice and was really looking for someone to correspond in Spanish. address, know mine, come on over -- I've got it covered. none of it bothers me. so what.

Wonderful Advice! When my hubby was in everytime he switched prisons I would start getting mail from people I didn't know. I guess they thought they could write after he left the prison? It was weird. Now I always use a PO BOX and I know that whatever I send is not for his eyes only.
