Can I ask a vpass question here too?

We don't yet use vpass but I visit every weekend. When we are able to finally set up our accounts does this vpass thing make it so if I can only visit on sat, I can still visit that day?

I visit each weekend but normally only on sat. Except for a few times when y son has an activity then I go Sundays. Will this new system make that harder?

Also it says you can make your appt 2 weeks in advance but can we still visit during the time before the first vpass appt kicks in?

If I don't have an appt but will be visiting anyway will I not get in? Thanks.

Yes you can make an appointment only for Saturday. Depending on your prison it might allow you to do this two weeks in advance.

If you don't have an appointment I believe most of the prisons allow walk in after 11am. Which is first come first serve.

So then are appts accepted like from 8-11 when you try to make one? This sounds very tricky if your used to coming each week. I wish we could set up out account now so wed can be ready.

I'm new to this posting thing so hope this works correctly.
You should be able to sign up now. We had vpass before being transfered and my account is still good. I will have to update my facility once its available where we are currently at. The system is really easy to use. Each facility is different, how many day or weeks in advance you can schedule an appointment and walk in times. Your facility will provide a facility message that will state all of his once up and running. It's simple, quick and easy to use. It had some small issues at first but I haven't heard to many problems with it now. Hope this helps.

I entered my husband info and entered a prison that was up and running. So when he went to his new spot I was registered and changed the prison.

The system dfoesn't catch on that the particular inmate is not at that prison.

I wondered about that I was worried I'd get stuck at that prison and not be able to change to correct location.

I also noticed that when you make an appt it lets you select whichever location they offer it at.
