Default BVCF (Buena Vista Correctional Facility) Tips and Things to Know

Hi all, I'm new to PTO. I am communicating with a person at Buena Vista CF and wondered if anyone here has experience in dealing with this facility in particular and some tips/best practices, as far as sending letters, calling (best services), video chat, do they have a pet adoption program, etc. I've done some research on what's acceptable to send via mail and know about the recent changes at BV (and CO in general) about greetings cards & photos. I just printed photos on my printer instead. But their website isn't terribly informative and keeps the info pretty basic.

Hi and welcome. BVCF is sometimes frustrating to deal with. Their mail room can be fine or not so fine- depends on the day.Letters are fine and I think pictures are okay for now. If you have any issues don't hesitate to call the mail room and ask questions.

I definitely called the mailroom and spoke to a pretty nice officer, actually. She said that their 'standard operating process' is to add a business day for reviewing/sorting mail, but that the offenders will get their mail pretty close to standard mail schedule. Which has not proven to be true, unfortunately. Ugh, it's just such a pain in the ass.
