Question Babysdad introduced me to this site

Hello, my babyís dad is in Pleasant valley prison and his letter mentioned this website to keep up w what goes on. After many months I was able to receive a call from him! (He mentioned lockdown was lifted in the letter) but I missed it and he never called again. Do they limit your calls like that? Iím new to this all over again. Thanks

Hi Lesluurr, welcome to PTO.
Glad he gave you the info to find us.
Do you know if hes still in reception or has he mainlined?
If he's still in reception I think they are only allowed very limited number of calls.
(Believe its one per month)
If he's been mainlined he could call more, but possibly due to a lockdown they may not have access to the phones. (which are always collect btw)
Best way to communicate is going to be thru letters. So I'd write if the phone calls are going to be an issue. Letters DO take a lot longer than *normal* letters you would post to someone on the outside, so be prepared for delays in communication.


Hope that helps a bit.

PVSP has 4 yards like many prisons - A, B, C, and D. The C yard has had ongoing gang problems and been on modified program for a long time. They have to keep certain groups separated and that means they don't get as much yard time. That is unlikely to change anytime soon. If he is on C yard, he can still likely call every second day or so.

If he is on any other yard, there is no reason why he would not be able to attempt a call every day unless there was some short term lockdown.
