Hello, hoping to get a few answers, I have a friend who was just moved from Pelican Bay THU to this facility. Im confused with the process, he is housed currently in D7, this is considered a THU unit. My question is are visits only the 3rd weekend of the month, and if so is the process for visiting the same as all other blocks?? any help would be appreciated.

Non contact visits are 1 hour behind glass. Contact visits are from 8am-2:30pm. The length of your visit will depend on what time you arrive, processing and how crowded it is on that particular day. Hope this helps!! Take care!

Hello everyone, I have a questions about the types of ID kvsp is now accepting. I had asked a sergeant a while back and he informed me that only US gov't issued id's would be accepted, but that the only other form of ID they would take is the Mexican passport. He said they would take it for 2 months but after that would have to provide a US gov't issued ID. I recently was told that they are now accepting the "matricula consular" (Mexican counsel ID) but the "high security" version. Does anyone know if this is in fact true? Any information would be much appreciated.

WOW!! I sure hope not! that would be just the craziest thing. Do you know why they're all on lockdown now? I know the blacks, others, and southerners had been on lockdown since last year for a stabbing I believe. But why all of "A" yard now?

that best for her to wear is pants that are NON jean pants, NO stretch pants/leggings, no skirts/dress, no camo, no baggy pants, jerseys...when it comes to shirts, no tummy, no boobie, no tank top, no logos that will affend people...you cant wear flip flops that are rubber...when it comes to hair no bobby pins, if you hve your hair up in clips they will ask you to take it down....you hve to go in very plain...its better to not wear jewlery, no belts if you dnt hve to. If your 14yr old has peircings that has to come out also if you do you hve to remove them. you just dnt want to draw any attention to yourselves. Less is more in prison

Our daughter is 15 and she usually wears gray or black jeans or black sweats. Nothing too tight and she usually wears regular scoop neck or crew fitted tees or course again not too tight. Bring a few extra changes of clothes just un case. You should also bring her ID (school or CA ID) they don't always ask for it but it's better to be safe than sorry. The gym on D yard has visiting the 1st, 2nd, and 4th weeknds of the month. Hope this helps good luck!
