Hello, does anyone know if they are still accepting new inmates in good health? My LO has been endorsed to PVSP to be closer to home, now he is 12 hours away! He's hearing from the CO's at Donovan that PVSP is being shut down, but all I can find is about the inmates in poor health. Hoping you may have heard something about what's going on from the source! So confused and kinda bummed, thought we would be able to take his kids to see him for Christmas this year. Thanks.

As sad as this may sound PV, is not closing they should but there not from what I'm hearing and reading. LO's are being endorsed and buses keep rolling in. I'm sure they are checking now who is "high risk", and when the time comes to transfer them to the new Stockton Medical facility (if eligible), when it opens. Fact is, there's no room to send 8000+ this includes Avenal, they are in the mix as well. My baby, is thankfully healthy, he suffers from asthma and is treated, but he doesn't fall into any "high risk" category. PV, currently provides masks for everyone who wants one. The counselors are checking "C" files to make sure they are not transpaking high risk inmates to PV. If your brother has been endorsed to PV, that should tell ya something . Buses are rolling into PV weekly. My Baby's ex cellie is transpaking to PV.

thank you, it's good to know they're still transfering! There are so many rumors floating around through the system that it's crazy. We want him to be closer, he wants to see his kids. As much as I would love for the additional stresses to be set on our Governor and all the other people responsible for making our system as horrendous as it is right now I'm glad the rumor isn't true! It's going to make my life a bit easier.

So this rumor about PVSP and Avenal being demolished is all lies. My friend's guy at SCC also heard that PVSP an Avenal were being shut due to the high level of expenses in death of inmates and CO's. In my head I'm like Okay so are these inmates being released or stacked up in another prisons gym. They also got rumors going on that instead of 85% is turning to 65% and then get released but now at this point I believe nothing until I see that it's being done. All it does is give false hopes to people.

On another note I wanted to share with all you nice ladies that I had an amazing visit and wished I didn't have to leave but as always I know soon we will be re-united. I def like the program but wished the vending machines had more to offer. Overall the processing was quick and easy. I felt like a silly kid with butterflies when I saw my baby come out.

That's great, yea processing is good, what yard do you visit? the vending machine in B has only one working hopefully they get it working soon selections can always be better but it works for us. Yup, it's always hard to leave.

YES! I was so excited yet sad to leave him there :'( I ended up not wearing the vest in that color because the lady in friends outside trailer said it wouldn't pass but I think I will attempt that the second visit I just was to nervous to get myself together lol So second visit I should be confident and not nervous. I almost felt like I didnt make it to the yard lol

I seriously use to sit in visit for about a solid 10-20 minutes in processing with a heat that was just crazy but here I got in and I saw the CO lady does she have semi-redish hair in the little booth, was very kind to me and I made sure to cover my tushy I kept pulling my shirt down lol I visit A yard and I mean they didnt have film I guess for the camera so no pictures. Although I must say it's nice to not have to hit my knees against the table like the old place I think I got so many bruises lol Now I can rest my hands on a regular table. I mean we will learn to work with it to in the end it's all we've got really I 'm just thankful that I can see him more if I want due to him being semi-close

The female CO we all mention is latina, she wears her dk hair in a clip and stands in the booth handing out passes or photo ducats. Lol, on the tables.

Yes, PV has 5 yards all together. A,B,C,D and E.
Correct me if I'm wrong on this ladies:
A yard is an SNY yard,
B yard General Population,
C yard General population,
D yard SNY yard,
E yard General population for level 1 (Minimum security)

I believe ad seg does not have a yard. At times which is very minimal they do allow them to exercise a bit in a confined little space, like a cell. I'm not sure where its located I think near E Yard. As far as levels goes I'm not sure, sorry.

Thank you Dboysgirl and JaysBea ! for sharing. You ladies rock.

Okay for all you "A" yard chicas on the forum...What level is it? 3 or 4 or both????, you are all so quiet . This is informative for the newbies and for us new folks that have only been at PV, for a few months.
