You should talk to your hubby. He has to send the paperwork to u. I think he has to get approval from the captain or the sargent or warden but he sends the papers to u then u send them back to the prison attn fam visits or ofcr lafuer. She calls u then u get a date. A lot of girls on here don like ofcr. Lafeur but my sister has visits about once a mnth. She likes her and has no probs. Im getting married nxt year so I am going on fam visits to. Dont read the neg stuff on here bcuz u will get discouraged and I thnk sum are racist cuz shes blk I think. Fill out ur paperwork right and u will be ok. My sister gets her visits quick bcuz she does her paperwork right. U can call the visit department too and get info. Good luck

P.s. the mail system there sux so ur hubby may have too get the paperwork mailed 2x. Just fill it out right. Once u get ur first visit u get one evry month or month and a half. My sister tells me everythng so I will pass it to u. Call the visit dept and ask the sargent.

On regards of racistism? My husband is blk so are my kids....its not called negativity either.... its more unprofessional ways that the officers deal with us on the phone whn we call to ask questions. As I can see u haven't even dealt with Officer Laflore at all. So u cant speak for other ppl, until u have been there nd done that. After my ppr wrk got lost with her name on it.... I made a complaint.... why? Cause its not fair that my ppr wrk is no where to be found wit a trackn# nd signatured. The way Officer Priolo was at the time of calling her askn numerous of Questions not one time she gave an attitude. I called her more thn 5 time in 2 days nd was so professional throws mes the whole 9yrds. But wit the new fv coordinator.... attitudes, etc, so UNPROFESSIONAL..... in my own experience.... just wntd to clarify there's no racistism over here... my own husband nd kids are BLACK jus like her!!!

I too can say that it has nothing to do with prejudice...
This process is inconvenient for everyone involved and we all would rather our husbands be home and that we didn't have to ask permission to have a visit with them. But their not and unfortunatly we are here all trying to work together the officers, the inmates and the families.
It's always a refresher when as wive's we encounter officers like Priolo who are kind, more than helpful and who treat us like human beings...
It's not that we want to

Oops,
I don't think that we want to pull anything over on anyone, we are all just trying to get through the best we can.
As for Officer LaFluer... I understand that she's just trying to do her job, it's not an easy position and not one that can be taken lightly. I actually just got off the phone with her regarding my next family visit and she was helpful and cordial. I'm hoping that we can get passed things that have happened when she first took over the position and we can treat each other the way we each deserve to be treated.
I too have had 2 visiting packets that were lost recently and one packet that was lost back in February... As frustratin as it is, I know that LaFluer does not handle the mail in anyway... The mail room at this time is in bad shape and in need of many extra hands.

Ok this thread is for questions/answers regarding family visits.
I also want to caution you guys about using employee's names online.Especially if its negative. Heck if you want something from someone you sure as heck wouldnt get any assistance from someone you just talked crap about, right?
CO's do post from time to time and probably do read as well.
just saying

Usually she gives u a call once she receives ur packet. Well at least that's what she did with me after my packet got lost here nd there. Nd yes ur food package gotta be there first before she gives u a date. The wait time is not that long... after she received my packet on a Thursday I got that call on da following Monday wit my date.... I got back frm my fam visits today nd da whole process was fast itself...... good luck grl......

hopefully. i called her this morning to see if she got my paperwork, (has my food package) since its been a while since I sent it. said no she didnt that she would call me when she did. but unlike priolo, she didnt even take a moment to look. priolo would have told me to hold so she can look. wow, i already miss her . i dont know what to do, my hubby is upset and i feel useless. i even sent it express mail with signature confirmation in a big manilla envelope. what do i do? should i have my hunny request another set of paperwork? may God hear my prayers and we get one soon ...
