I just got a letter from my son dated 6/11/13 He stated He just got letters from me dated 5/29/13-5/30/13

He is in Adseg so I don't know if that matters.

I believe it's one tablet (lined paper), 2 books of stamps, and 20 envelopes. Someone please correct me if I'm wrong.

That's okay Chica, now you know. 10 per envelope only. I always let him know in my letter how many pics I'm sending and than I # each pic on the back like. (2 of 10)

BTW...It will be a minute before any of his mail catches up.

No, I haven't heard anything. My last letter was either last Mon/Tues, which is really weird for him. I am really missing him though. Trust me, I will let you know the minute I hear from him.

Default Mailroom throwing away photos

My son got transferred to pvsp in nov 2012. At first the pics i sent were edited by the mailroom an given to him..just once though. Now I spend alot of money getting and sending him pictures and he never receives them. The mailroom is supposed to give him two forms to sign and then he pays their way back to sender or they will throw them away. I get one of those copies with the returned photos
It is the policy of all CA state prison mailrooms to do this. He has not received any pic I sent him since dec 2012 and they have no explanation they have just disappeared
I know the staff has changed over from women to men but they still are accountable to cA policies.
What are my options?

Has anyone's guy mention that mail is running much quicker right now? Did people complain lol because my guy said he's receiving mail between 5-8 days. It was normally taking a month for him to receive a card with no pictures just writing so it's bittersweet for me I guess my question is during certain times or is this just luck of draw kinda thing?

My baby hasn't said anything about getting mine any faster. I finally received all the mail that I knew I should have been receiving during the LD. I received 10 letters today, actually 12 counting the one for my mom and one for my nephew. Dated back from 6-6 to 6-23.

I'm sorry you and your son are having issues with the mail. The mail at PV, is up and down. It's obvious there not following procedures. I would do the mailroom and ask for the Sup. and also call/email the Ombudsman. Explain the situation I hope it works out.

The number to the mailroom is (559) 935-4900 ext. 5823

Ombudman's Sonya Valle (916) 327-8446
Sonya.Valle@CDCR.gov

I am having the same problem my son is in ad-Seg too and it is taking 3 weeks to a letter from him. It takes even longer for him to receive mine. My son told me to write the Ombudsman and let them know because by law they are to get their mail within 12 days of post dated marked on the envelope. So that is what I am going to do, and you should too.

Mail is slow Chica it's up to 15 days for them to get incoming mail. It's really a hit or miss.

I mailed out a parcel today and a "just because" card separately. The last card I mailed out was his Fathers Day card and it took 16 days. Lets see how long, it takes this time.
