Blouses or T's 2 inches from Neck. No blue jeans or form fitting pants like stretch pants or tights. Take extra clothes to be safe.
Pictures: as long as the camera is available and your Man has photo duckets they purchase at store you can take photos.
Money: limit $50 per adult and $20 for each child only $1 bills and dollar coins allowed oh and quarters
Hotels: there is one about 5 min before you get to the prison exit in Soledad it's called Soledad 8 motel. Super clean and decent I've had good experiences just book in advance cause sometimes they sell out.

Thank you Dizzyp I appreciate the info. I will be new to this prison and I rather know before hand how things are at Salinas. I haven't had contact visits in a while so I'm a little nervous 😯 once I make the appt and I get there,where do I go from there?

Question Does anyone have a love one in salinas valley state prison?

My boyfriend was transferred to Salinas State Prison after been in Soledad Training and Wasco. I don't know why he is been move so much in less than a month. Is Salinas any different than other prisons. I watch documentaries about this prison but I bet is nothing compare to real life. My boyfriend wont tell me anything he just says "Im alright". He has 1 yr to go and I pray he makes it out with no problems.

Another question, I know inmates need to b part of a gang but how to know what gang to choose. My boyfriend is from Ventura County. I know my boyfriend has chose a gang but he wont tell me that either. I don't know if its politics or what!

My boyfriend was also in Wasco Reception for 4 months then taken to Soledad Training Facility for about a week and now in Salinas Valley State Prison doing 1 yr.

Hoping and praying that its 1yr because u never know what could happen.

Default Salinas valley state prison classification

I JUST FOUND OUT THAT SALINAS VALLEY STATE PRISON TAKES LEVEL 1 & 4 INMATES. MY BOYFRIEND WAS IN SOLEDAD CORRECTIONAL TRAINING FACILITY WHICH IS A LEVEL 1 & 3 FACILITY. DOES THIS MEAN MY BOYFRIEND IS NOW A LEVEL 4 INMATE OR SOLEDAD TRAINING WAS PACKED AND HE WAS MOVE TO SALINAS AS A LEVEL 1 INMATE?

Can anyone give me any information on the Hospital at, Salinas Valley" CTC". My man has stage#4 Cancer and has been there for about 3 weeks now? I would appreciate anything. How it is? is it a hospital setting? does the inmate get visits? Can they make phone calls if they can speak? please I need to know what to expect. I've been calling daily but seem to get the run around.
thanks again,
Lyffe

Lyffe, my good friend, now that you know all the answers to your questions, why don't you post them? Maybe the next lady won't have to go thru all the BS you had to go thru to get the answers. And maybe we can liven up this forum. Love you and your man.

Hi this is my 1st time on this site. My husband told me that I can ask if someone has decided not to be able to keep their visit for April 22nd that they can transfer it to me? Is that possible? Vpass is ALWAYS full. Also not sure if I'm on the right page.

I think VPass scheduling for this prison opens on Sunday nights at 7:00 pm for scheduling approximately 2 weeks in advance. If you are more than 2 or 3 minutes after that time, all slots will be gone. If you want a slot be sure to be sitting on your computer logged on and ready to immediately secure a slot at 7:00 pm every Sunday.

You can post on here and see if anyone has a slot they are going to cancel. If you know someone is going to cancel at say 9 am you can log on and secure that slot when it becomes available
