Welcome to Kern!! Your honeys orientation is usually 10-14+ days from arrival, but it just really depends. He might be lucky and go through it faster or not so lucky and it be longer. Good Luck

If you will be getting contact visits, you should start setting up your VPass account. Because KVSP contact visitors are though VPass and you're able to book your appointment up to two weeks in advance. Good luck and hope you get your visits soon. Here is the VPass link:

He will either be going to C or D yard. Visiting is by appointment unless you walk in at 10:30 I think is the time.

D YARD BUILDING 7-8 IS THU (validated inmates that are the process of debriefing). They only get contact visits once a month (3rd weekend of the month). All other weekends is behind the glass visits.

C YARD is all SNY

Hi ladies, Im new to KVSP!!

From what I've read I see my husband is in Facility D- THU
What exactly does this mean? And is this where he'll stay after orientation or just right now that he's arrived?

How long before he can get visits? and is the dress code here pretty strict?

Thanks for your response

Hi, if your husband is in Dyard THU he is either in building D7 or D8, THU is transitional housing unit, he has to be in this program before he gets to go into a SNY yard. He most likely debriefed before coming into THU. The program is suppose be for 18 months but i know many of them have been there longer already including my guy.
They get contact visits every 3rd weekend of the month and non-contact all other weekends.
