Default Can anyone help explain the process to me? Georgia Prisons

So my ol man is in Jackson diagnostics, how long before he can call me? Can he write me? Will he get the letters I've sent already? He's been there 4 days and I haven't talked to him in over a week I know that's nothing but I miss him.....

I moved your post to Georgia where hopefully you can get some better info more specific to your situation.
Looks like this link may be of some help

My son was at Jackson for almost 2 months. The 1st 2 weeks is when they do all the testing & classification stuff. We didn't hear from our son very often there. He was allowed to call after he finished the evaluation process. He did write us & we wrote him a couple of letters. Where did you send the letters you wrote? if it was to Jackson, they'll get to him. If it was somewhere else, they'll forward them but it takes a while. I know it's hard but understand that they are processing him & that takes time.

This brought tears to my eyes im sorry its hard without him. Just the fact that you cared to reply means a lot to me so thank you!!! I sent them to a po box in Jackson Ga. I don't know when to expect a letter back though he had fifty dollars on his books the day before they took him to jackson so I assume hell be able to use it to get envelopes.

I'm glad some of the info helped. I do know it takes a bit for their funds to move when they go. I think it was a couple of weeks. You could call the DOC & ask them. The ladies I talked to there have always been so nice & helpful. Their # is 404-656-4661. Ms Mary & Ms Freida are the ones that usually answer when I call & they can give you some info & direct you where to find out more.

If you go to the NIA advocacy group site, they have info on the next DOC Family Day being held in Valdosta. It's an event where loved ones can go to meet DOC people & others to get answers to questions. It might be worth the trip. Here's a link to the info- https://joinnia.com/event/georgia-de...ns-family-day/

Good luck & I hope you hear from him soon.
