Go to that CDC website and check. Once it shows that he is in Centinela, you have to wait for him to get classified and then you can surprise him!!

Sometimes the mailroom staff can be very rude & unhelpful... I usually speak with the records dept to get housing info. There are different PO Box #'s for each yard, but the zip is 92251 & of course the city is Imperial. Idk exactly how long the orientation is, but I know that is usually 'at least' 4 wks.

Just send it to:

Inmate name and cdc #
P.O Box 731
Imperial, Ca 92251

My husband was at Centinela for many years and I sent stuff to him at that address plenty of times....especially when the mail room was slow to send mail to him at the P.O Box # for C-Yard

Hey ladies, I was wondering if anyone has ever tried to send a customized photo book? I've read somewhere from a google search that most have been successful at sending them, but when I searched this online it came up for different prisons not for Centinela. I'm guessing the paperback style obviously lol. I would love to send him a photo book. Thanks in advance. :-)

Good question!! Hmmm I am always sending my baby photo cards, calendar borders and all kinds of photo stuff but I never thought about a customized photo book! I think calling mail room would be the best thing to do to make sure!

Default Mail does take forever

My love is on D yard too, I guess because of the budget cut this year mail is taking even longer. Last year it would take about a week for him to recieve my cards. (I mail him cards, postcards, not a whole lot of reading material so I can imagine how much longer it probably takes with my 10page letters lol) but yes before it only took about a week. Now its taking more than 2 weeks for him to get my mail. Not cool, but what can we do
