He should be able to receive and send mail immediately, so get a card or letter in the mail

You can send money via jpay, MoneyGram, money order (to jpay)...see Georgia's DOC for more info:

I hope that info helps I'm not familiar with Georgia, but often, while in reception, it takes a while before they can call (for a number of reasons). He'll also have to create and submit a phone list before calling.

When my son was in Jackson for classification it took a bit to hear from him & for money to get on his account so I sent a money order to the DOC & it gets there rather quickly. Do you have it set up through Jpay to put money on his account? Also, do you have an account set up with Securus for phone calls? They recently change to that service. You can call the GA DOC for info. The ladies I have spoken to there have been great. They were the ones who told me to mail the money for his account until he was set up on his end. Their # is 404-656-4661. Make sure you are on his "approved" list. They can also tell you how to write him if you don't already have that info.

He will not be able to have visits while in diagnostics unless he stays there for more than 60 days. You will have to be approved on his visitation and financial list before you can visit or send money. And your phone number will have to be on an approved phone list before he can call. This will take some time. If this is your first time dealing with this, it will help develop patience.

You can write the inmate at:
Georgia Diagnostic And Classification State Prison
P.O. Box 3877
2978 Hwy 36, West
Jackson, GA 30233

By completing a "Significant Other Form" means an inmate has requested that you be approved for visitation privileges with him/her at an institution.

Significant Other is a member of an inmate's extended family, a friend, or some other person having a meaningful relationship with the inmate.

The Significant Other must complete and submit the "Significant Other Application for Visitation Privilege". The Superintendent/designee will review and approve/disapprove the applications.

The term Significant Other does NOT imply automatic approval for visitation from romantic involvement.

Please contact Securus Technologies: 1-800-844-6591 or www.securustech.net to set up phone service. The caller will have to be on the inmate's approved visitation list.

Contact Jpay: 1-800-574-5729 to put money on an inmate's account. The caller will have to be on the inmate's approved financial list.

If you have any other questions please contact the facility at 770) 504-2000, or Ombudsman at 478-992-5358- Ombudsman@gdc.ga.gov.
Thanks,
