Question What can I send to inmate in the SHU @ Canaan?

Does anyone know what we're allowed to send to prisoners in the SHU @ Canaan?

When my fiance was in the SHU at Canaan, I sent letters, cards, books and pictures which I think it was 5 pictures per envelope.

You can send him books that are shipped by either the publisher, or from a bookstore as long as they arrive in the US Mail. Some SHUs had a book cart, but some others didn't. Having nothing to do except to stare at the walls of the cell makes SHU time seem like it will never end.

They did just start the white envelope rule. I had mail returned last week. So make sure all of your mail is in white envelopes.

Hi, my son is presently at Canaan en route to Loretto. I have not heard from him so I checked the BOP site which had the info. I would like to send him letters and books but I don't know whether he's in the maximum security penitentiary or minimum security camp. He will be in the minimum security at Loretto but not the camp. Do you know where they would place him at Canaan? Hope it's the camp but it just occurred to me it may be the SHU. Thanks so much.

Being "in transit" he can be in the SHU, or unable to use the phones while he is there. Each temporary stop has their own rules.

Well, I was at Loretto for 4+ years, and I transitioned thru Canaan as well. What they did then (2013) was to put us in a separated unit from the rest of the prison for protection' sake. I was fortunate to only have spent 3-1/2 days at Canaan, and that was ENOUGH.


If you have specific questions about Loretto FCI, I can answer them here or by private email if you request. I got out in 2017, so I might be able to ease your mind with some answers.
