I have a friend at Rockville for the same type of thing. Will your daughter be serving her entire time there or is she just there for the intake process? I think everyone goes there for evaluation and then gets assigned a "home prison" after a few weeks. From what I know, a lot of non-violent felons get moved to someplace like Madison which is a lower security level.

I don't know a huge amount about life in Rockville I'm afraid and most of what I do know comes under the "cons" category rather than "pros". They have JPay terminals there though which can be quite handy for keeping in touch, you may want to get an account setup if you don't already have one and you will be able to send emails. Make sure your daughter puts you on her visitors list! You have to be on the inamtes list in order to put money on their books, they just cracked down HARD on this rule at RCF and (according to my friend) around 70% of the women there were blocked from receiving money via JPay.

I've not had any mail rejected by RCF but I never put stickers, glitter etc. on the envelopes. I frequently include pictures though and they seem fine with all that.

Every couple of weeks the women who have no write ups get to get some better food if they have the money on their books to do so. This is a definite highlight n my friends routine!

I was asking all these types of questions in here a few months ago and a few very helpful folks posted more detailed replies, so just look for any threads with Rockville in the title.

Good luck to you both
