Default Hamilton CI question- about writing supplies

Do prisons supply paper and pen for correspondence? I'm wondering what they must purchase and what might be supplied. My ex or I should say...friend, told me that he has to trade his food for paper. According to him he has no one sending him money and wants me to send some. I don't quite trust him, but want to help if he truly needs help.

They dont supply them with paper and pens. My son is there and has to buy his. I believe if you fill out a paper they will give you a stamp and sheet of paper and envelope . But you gotta jump hoops to get it. And its once a month.

Hi Deb and Welcome to PTO and our Florida Forum!

Unfortunately, the FLDOC does not supply inmates with much. Basically they are provided with food, a place to sleep, and their uniform They must purchase their own pens, paper, stamps, etc. I hope this helps. If you have anymore questions, feel free to PM me!

This is where my fiance is. He has been there a week. I can't tell you anything about it, I can't tell you anything about FDOC. I am from CT and really only know how it works here. I am hoping to get some information about it to. Thanks NIKI

My finacee is in Hamilton and I know they can buy paper and pens..they are not supplied with anything. I heave heard they do trade their food for items and also they trade their stamps for things they need. I send my finacee postage stamps and a few dollars each month to buy the few things he needs such as toothpaste, deodorant. You can send the inmate envelopes and paper. Only 5 envelopes per letter and 10 sheets of paper per letter. One book of stamps per envelope and just state in the letter what is enclosed. Good luck Marsea

Default hamilton main unit

Hello Deb,
I'm new to this site, but I thought I would answer ur question anyways. My fiance is at hamilton as well and has been there for almost 5 years. No, the prison does not supply them w/writing supplies, unlike county jails. Hoever, they can purchase almost anything from the canteen. They can also order things from a catalog, but that costs a lot more money. For example, better shoes and some clothes like sweaters. If you're scared to send money, only send a small amount, like $10, he can't do much w/that. Nice to be a part of this group and I hope to meet more people who have dealings w/Hamilton. Take care

John and I had our first visit this weekend. I was nervous on saturday but as soon as he came in the room everything was fine the wire was the only thing that bothered me, that and the guards.
Check out our visit photos (click my profile, then homepage then click John and Shana visit photo link from main page )

The staff was really picky, we got yelled at a couple of times, its a very intimidating place but I was so overjoyed to be with John that nothing else mattered.
The only glitch we had was Johns box of property that was supposed to be waiting for me to pick up never made it out (even though several other inmates boxes did) so thats a bummer, we will have to mail it.

It wasnt too hard to find .. its up the street from a cemetary, which disgusted and upset me. The annex is pretty large, and there is a ton of razor wire and fences. The visiting room is nice, like a giant cafeteria, the only downfall is that the tables are simple long cafeteria style tables, on sunday when it was pretty full, there wasnt much of a private feeling but we dealt with it. The outdoor "park" is simply a fenced off area surrounded by more wire, with a few benches to sit on.

Hello
I would like to know how do you receive the property box?
Does your loved one have to request you receive it the day before the visit or can you do it fron visitation.
Thanks

he will have to turn it into property several days before the visit ... property will then fill out a form and leave it in the control room and it will be given to you (you have to tell them you are picking it up) on your way out after the visit.
make sure he turns it in early because if the property room is really busy that week sometimes they "forget" to put the package in the control room and since they dont work weekends you have to leave minus the package.

I was at the Hamilton Annex for over 3 years, it isnt a bad place as long as you keep your nose clean, the education program is really good, if your loved ones are at the annex please talk them into seeking some education.
good luck to all!

Deb,
If you are having problems believing him and want to know how much money he has in his account, all you ahve to do is call the inmate trust bank, you tell them you'd like to check on an inmates balance, give them his DC number and they ask for his name, an whala...there you go.
The number is 1-866-209-7250. Hope this helps you!!!
