Passion, I'm sorry I misunderstood your question. I thought you were referring to a visitor. If the CO has probable cause than they answer is yes they are randomly tested. They also test them after a family visit randomly.

I need some help here. My fiance is locked up on an aggravated residential burglary charge. Also criminal mischief first degree. He went before the board yesterday. The guy who did his interview told him he was going to try and get him home but honestly it didn't look good. Here we are thinking he is about to get out. His T.E. date is june of 2013 & he just completed a drug program and the certificates should greatly help his chances. I need to know if there is a way for me to find out if he was approved. I called the parole board today but just got a recording to leave a message. Also I'm wondering if the victim protested him getting parole does that for sure mean he will be denied? I'm new to all this and need some answers so really anyone who can help me with any info at all would be appreciated. I feel very helpless and sad.

PVSP, nor any facility has a chit-chat thread. They (PTO) eliminated it in Jan '13. Certain things are put in the mix here and there in the threads we have now. You can find the chit chat forum under:
California Bull Session lounge.

If you have ANY questions ask away there are many helpful ladies here or you can PM me...I will try to answer your questions

Good Morning Ladies! I had posted a few months back about Pleasant but now we are finally here Although I am feeling kind of nervous since every move means new prison and the way they function is different. However, I am glad to be gone from the other place. I was reading in past post that they have patios? In the summer are women allowed to wear blouses that are loose and with no sleeves? Also,the friends outside trailer until what time is it open? Any information that you guys feel I might need would be gladly appreciated. I just have so many questions but dont want to sound annoying lol Alright then Chicas! I look forward in hearing about PVSP. Thank You in Advance.

to PV, we have all been down the same path, newbies. It comes with the territory lol...Its okay the CO's dont bite .
Yes we have patios they are open all the time . You can wear a lose blouse as long as your bra strap does not show and the strap is 2 inches in width if sleeveless. The friends outside is opened I believe till 3:15. All the ladies on here are great . We all help one another out. So ask away, and take a look at our prior threads.

Okay, so I am coming from Oakland and my GPS says 2hrs and 58 mins! I guess that GPS is not accurate then lol. I was hoping he would get closer but that's asking for to much right? ha White is one of those colors you have to kind of gamble. Are there any women CO's I should be warned about. I know they have those in every prison. There were 5 at the prison my guy was at. Boy were they trippin' on every little thing. They would even tell the female visitors to lean to make sure nothing would be seen if they bent down. I'm excited because he's semi-close.Works with me ha Another question while he is in orientation can I send him a paper package and do I send it addressed to him or differently? Photo Ducats are bought after you pass the metal detector correct? Is the metal detector very sensitive that it might sound off with a bra that has 2 hooks? I saw these ideal bra's that have plastic under (to give a little lift lol) but then I saw the tag and they were nursing bra's! LMAO Also in the visiting room are inmates allowed to stand with the visitors at the microwaves and go with their visitors to the vending machines but no touching money right? Are they very strict when you kiss them at the beginning and at the very end do you have to say goodbye at the table or can they walk with you to the back to say their good-bye's. The drive is such a lonely one. The 5 is so dead and people speed through that like it aint nobody's business, coming from up North. Even the slow lane lol
