Default Phoenix to Camp Hill?

I don't know a lot about the state system, I have a friend who has a little over 3 years left and just got moved from a county jail to Phoenix. I got a letter and he said he was being transferred to Camp Hill probably within 7-12 days. I'm confused, I thought they did classification at both prisons, why would he need to be moved from one to the other?

All male prisoners are classified at SCI Camp Hill. PHX is merely the intake point for the Eastern Region (and GRN is the intake point for the western region.)

Once he completes the classification process, the Classification Unit will determine which prison to send him to and put him in the line to get there. It can take a few weeks or a couple months, and he probably won't know anything until the day before he leaves.

Welcome to Prison Talk. I don't know the answer to your question, but here is what PA DOC says about receiving calls from prisoners.

Unfortunately, Camp Hill is dreadful - one of the most poorly run in the state. Having said that, he would've been in 10 day intake when he first got there, so hopefully you've heard from him. (I know your post is a month old.) It's been our experience that the kiosks are frequently out of order (my bf is in Chester right now), but hopefully you've heard from your person. Sadly, I have a lot of experience dealing with the PA prison system, so ask me any questions you like!
