Has anyone gone through
"JUST RIGHT PACKAGES" ? For quarterly packages?
Thanks

Congrats on the transfer . Anything on his books should follow him and jpay is the fastest. If he's there within a few days rather than a few weeks, you might want to send a stationary package such as paper, envelopes, stamps, and cards because they can be traded immediately. Sometimes canteen can take awhile, especially if he happens to be in the middle of the lockdown. Good luck.

Hi y'all!

My mom wants to send him a magazine subscription and she was thinking National Geographic. I told her that it frequently has nudity in it so I would pop on here and see if anyone knows if it falls on the banned list because of that.

Anyone know if it will get in? Or maybe they flip through and glance the pics first? Sounds like a hassle to me. :/

I have been orrdering packages from access for years now and I just recently stopped receiving confirmation emails. It would follow the order receipt email with a confirmation number and a shipping confirmation. Has anyone stopped receiving them also? Access said they might be going to my junk folder but I dont think so since im receiving the first receipt email. I just like to know when the package ships and it frustrates me that I cant call the automated system to check the status since I never get the email with confirmation number.

What generally happens to magazines (or mail in general) that are delivered after an inmate is transferred? He has a magazine subscription and we're going to try to get the company to re-route, but if that doesn't happen...do they forward mail to their new facility at all?

Thanks!

That was my first guess, too. And if takes too long and crosses into another quarter, it will count as that quarter's package. I'd find out what happened to it before ordering anything else. My husband worked in R&R on his yard so I'll ask him and see if he knows what they do with packages in this case. I'll post when I hear from him.

Finally got a chance to ask about this. He said that protocol is to return the package to the vendor if the inmate is no longer at the facility. However, it depends on who's working R&R-- some of them will fwd the package if they know he just transferred and there's a pallet already going to that facility.

I know that's not all that helpful, but it seems safe to assume it probably went back to the vendor. :/

Default Package

When a package arrives do the inmate goes to the mail room to pick it up or how does that work. I know itís a dumb question to ask. I called the warehouse and they said the package was delivered on the 19 of March but I know they was on lock down I think. Is there a way where I can call the mail room to see if he got it or no.

All prisons use similar procedure I think. After arriving the package goes to storage in a property room. The inmate will be notified it is there and allowed to go pick it up. That should happen within a week of it arriving, but there could be backlogs and delays. For example, if there has been a lockdown packages aren't delivered. When lockdown ends there are a larger number of packages waiting which slows things down more.

Call the prison. They usually have automated answering. You want RNR or Property Room (prisons use both terms). Someone should be able to tell you if the package is there.

KVSP is notoriously slow for package delivery. If it just got there on the 19th, it can take 2-3 weeks more to get to him. I once had a book sit in RNR for two months before he saw it.

First off, Quarterly Packages and Special Purchase Packages do not go through the Mailroom. They are received in the Central Warehouse and are stacked there until they have a full pallet to take to the property officers in Receiving & Release (R&R). That process can take anywhere from a few days to a few weeks, accounting for most of the delay. To find out if a Package has been received and/or delivered, call the warehouse at extension 4920 or the property officers at x-5042.

I called the warehouse where I ordered the package. Is there a different number I should called. I know he would get it.
