Make certain you get writing materials sent to your LO ASAP and put money on his books if possible. Hang in there--I found the stint in Reception to be the most difficult time. Things will get better once he is transferred.

Anyone know how long it will be before transfer once the security squad comes and interviews? My man thinks it means his counselor has his file and read his history... ?

What do you mean the security squad? Did he get in trouble? Ive seen reception run anywhere from 3 weeks to 11 months, and now by reading other's it can run up to almost 2 years. It's one big waiting period.

Hello everyone

My LO is just getting to Wasco. I read all the stuff posted about reception time periods. Sounds to me like that part just depends. Can anyone tell me when he can have a visit?

Wow 2 hrs ! Our reception was 1 hr behind glass. So much better than 30 mins we got at county jail though.

My honey is in San Quentin right now for processing. He is writing me with lots of positive notes about the possiblity of fire camp. Have you known inmates go straight from San Quentin to Susanville for Fire Camp? Or do they usually have to prove themselves elsewhere to earn it? One thing that might be leading him to be so positive is prop 57. Who knows!!
