Default Question for Fort Dodge Correctional Facility people...

Hey PT, I know some of you didn't like what I had to say about the level system in FDCF. But it does not effect me so I am on to another question.

My man is in the Hole for tryin to help a friend out and keep him out of trouble. His is under investagation and can not contact me. He has not got in trouble there and he has been there a year.

Can anyone tell me does he get one phone call before he goes in? Can he write me? How long will he be in there? I am lost without him to talk to...

Hope some of you can help me
Thanks
Miss

I can't tell you for sure, but I doubt he'd be able to call. He should be able to write you still though. The length depends on what he did.

Dont know about FD but in Newton my guy could still call from the hole, one call a week is all though and if the call didnt go through, too bad, one call was it.

Sorry, I meant he probably won't be able to call before going in. I think the once a week thing is pretty common.

My advice to you would be to call Fort Dodge directly. They should be able to answer your questions. The number is 515-574-4700. I hope you are able to speak with him sometime. The only thing I can tell you is to wait it out and let him know you were thinking of him the whole time, send him letters and cards to let him know. It will make his time go by faster.

Thanks everyone I have not been on here in a min. so I can now tell you all how it works...

Once he gets to he hole he has to put a kite in to call and he has to be in there 48 hours before he can call. Then it is once a week but if they get someone cool in there they may let them call everyother day...

It is crazy why he is in there... and he may be going to Anamosa, does anyone know about there?

my man said he will be out dec. 15 if he doesn't get in trouble. Is it pretty easy to get in trouble there, or should he have no problem getting through?

He started on July 31 and he had already been in Fort Dodge for a few weeks, he was waiting for this class to start.

I called his counselor today and I just got approved to visit him. Now I have to save up gas money and find the time so I can go visit him all day. Hopefully it will be soon. He keeps asking me when I will come visit him and it's killing me that I can't come as soon as I would like.

You will have to call the main number 515-574-4700 and select the option to speak with the operator. Give the operator his inmate number and ask who his counselor is and his extension. When they transfer you leave a message and ask the counselor if you are approved. The counselor is the only person authorized to give out that information.

Thanks sounds good. Have you gone and visited him yet. I just talked to my man, and he says I'll be able to visit him next weekend.

No I was hoping for this past weekend but with gas prices and my weekend schedule it doesn't look like I will be able to get out there for a month or so. I already told him I may or may not be able to get out there only because I didn't want to get his hopes up. But I am trying to get out there to see him.

Default tv in fort dodge

Does anybody know what regulations are, about the tv's in Fort Dodge? I mean, I heard that u can now send a used tv, that was bought from another inmate who's been released, but how do you go about delivering it? First off, is it true that they don't have to buy them new in there anymore? Can I send one? or can I deliver one? and how does this work? Does anybody know?

I would call and talk to the R&D officer at FDCF. Whenever I had a question, I would call up there and request to speak to them. Sometimes the person answering could answer but most of the time they referred me. The R&D officer is the one who would dispense the tv when it came in anyway. the # at FDCF is 515-5744700.
