Default Question about the draft

If you call the prison will they tell you if your loved one is on the draft?

They should be able to tell you whether he is there or not. If you want to know when he's arriving at a new facility, you want to contact Classification and Movement

My bf went on the draft thurs afternoon. Right before our visit. We were lucky they even let me in to see him, but because I was already there and processed they let him come down. Once they are on the draft they are locked in. I called this morning and they told me he was in transit but couldn't tell me where until he arrived. She told me to call back Monday. LOL, Yeah like i'm gonna wait til Monday to see where he is! We are hoping for Groveland because its closer to home and visits are saturdays and sundays. Good luck with your loved one.

How long before he was put in draft? My husband has been in since April 19th I know from reading the site that it can be any where from 2 weeks to at times 2 months in some circumstances. Just wanted to know your experience. Was he in reception for a while?

He was in reception for 3 Weeks before they put him on the draft. He was transferred exactly 3 Weeks and 1 day from the day he arrived in Elmira. I am patiently-lol- waiting to see where he is being transferred to. I hate not knowing where he is.

since he was moved on a Thursday--it may be until next week before he arrives at his final prison. They only move them a few hours at a time. So he may spend the weekend somewhere that is not necessarily his final prison.

If you call classification and movement 518 457 6022, they will tell you when to call back. The time they give you means he will be at his final destination then--that is the only time they can tell you where he is.

yes you must have an account at myvconnect.com to get calls from a NYS Prison. And you must have a landline to set up that account with vconnect.

When they are moved on a friday, he may end up in a temp prison for the weekend. If that happens, he will be able to call you. I was also able to visit at Ulster. He was being moved from Hale Creek to Hudson.

it really depends on their access to a phone. He may be able to call while in transit, he may not. If he i at his new home facility, he needs to get the lay of the land. Sometmes, they are in a temporary place and cannot get to where the phones are right away. When he can call, he will call.

The DOC web site always lags. It will not change tll he is at his final facility--it will not reflect interm stops.

It's does take a while. My husband has called only 2 times in the past 2 weeks n it's short calls. He said is a rat race to the phones. And it's when he is allowed. Listen to momma Ann she is right. You have to give it time. Easier said than done but it's the only good recommendation. Start writing a letter to keep you busy so that as soon as he reaches his facility u can mail it out. That's what I do when I'm anxious. Hope it helps

Well speak does things as though they were. Don't speak negative. Trust that things will work out for the best. Sometimes the far away facilities are a lot calmer etc. Who knows. Hope everything works out. Stay positive at least here u have support.
