Default Transfers to reception first?

When getting transferred from one facility to another, do they go straight there or to the reception center first?

They go to reception centers while being transferred to another facility, and in the process their pins for the phone are shut off for 24hrs

It may depend on how long he is in reception until he is transferred to his next facility, and it could take up to a week after he gets there, depending on what orientation they put him through. Hang tough

My son was in Chipley for 3 months before going to another reception center for a week and then on to his main. It was worse than snail mail.

I don't know why some PINS get turned off and some do not. Marty got to reception yesterday and started calling at 5:06 pm...

You don't always go to a reception center if you're transferred. A lot depends on where you're transferring and the reason. I was transferred directly between three camps in Region I without ever seeing a reception center. If you're transferring to a different region, then you'll go to a reception center first. Or if you're going to work release, same thing. But camp-to-camp transfers within the same region will not go to a reception center.

They do shut off the PIN for the phone, but it's usually back on shortly after you arrive at the new institution. One time I was transferred my phone was back on by 8pm that night. Another transfer it didn't come back on until the next day. The longest I waited was when I was transferred from an Annex to a Work Camp at the same institution. That took 3 days to reactivate.

Maybe it has to do with the security level, too, because Marty went to three different ones in region three in the last six months and he's went through SF reception every time

Or maybe they're just getting hip to the game of saving gasoline I don't know...
