Default Why are letters taking so long from Georgia Diagnostic??

I have sent my LO three letters in the past week to GDCP. I have only received one letter and that was the initial letter since he was transferred there about 2 weeks ago. He told a mutual friend that he has been sending me letters and wondering why I haven't responded. Is anyone else had this problem? What can I do? I live in GA as well so it shouldn't take that long, right? Do they read the letters before it is sent out or something? I am new to this and very frustrated!

As far as I know, they don't read outgoing mail. In fact the letters I get from my son have a stamp across the seal saying it hasn't been read or opened. That is weird that it takes so long. My son isn't at Jackson anymore & his letter gets to me in about 4 days but I live in another state. You could try calling Jackson & asking about the mail.

Welcome to Prison Talk! Sorry you are experiencing delays with the mail. If the problem continues, I would do as suggested above and try to check with the mailroom...but I'm hoping it's just a temporary glitch and your letters will start going back and forth without delays. Good luck!

I haven't received but one letter my husband's been there almost a month! I don't know if they read them or not but he says they do I'm guessing they also don't make it priority! I was so worried they should get one free call to let us know they are OK!!!!! But that's just my opinion
