Thats is a tough one.
I wouldnt call and tell someone he's *not ok* unless you are concerned he might harm himself or someone else.
Then I might.
While my hub was in county I was REALLY tempted to call on him because he told me he didnt want to live. I was able to visit him later and he'd calmed down. Just glad that happened because I wouldnt have wanted him strapped to a chair in a shirt with sleeves that tie in the back unless he needed it. Bad.

Sorry if I misread what you were asking.

Does anybody know how to sign up for advance payment calls? GTL has no service at CMF I guess? I couldn't see CMF on their list. Help will be appreciated.

There is a change machine in processing and lockers for those who get dropped off. Usually if you have your car purse and phones are left in the car. But I don't chance it I bring my change cause its easier for me

Question New to CMF

My husband just was transferred here. I think this will be his endorsed facility. Per the CDCR inmate locator,he got here Tuesday. How long before he can call? What is the visitation like?

He should be able to call now. When my husband transferred there he was able to call right away. But that was 2yrs ago. Visiting is very laid back. The most relaxed facility we have been at. They're not to strict with the dress code. Visiting is from 8-3. Vpass comes available Sunday at 7. There always appts available

No call yet. Starting to worry. Was able to find out his housing Friday from a very kind female answering the phone. She told me his housing and who his counselor is. Left a message with his counselor on voicemail. Awaiting a call back. His housing is 'J'. Any info on that area?

Default Visitation list.

Does anyone know how many people are allowed to be on an inmates approved visitation list? Also,if an inmate can have 5 visitors at a visit, does that include children?

I was informed that the ban from Amazon was lifted. But according to the mail room they're still not accepting amazon packages

Lady I am always looking over the feed for CMF and I am part of Ifc but I think you got it wrong what we DO. We handle visiting issues I don't run the prison and yep they are backwards in how they do things. My advice to you would be call the Ombudsmans office cause that is an issue beyond me.

Hey Everyone!!

I wanted to share my happiness here with you all :-)
Finally I was able to see and visit my love! I'm so happy!
I want to share some information from my experience.
Approval process for me took 2 months. I got approved while he was located in some other facility.
I scheduled the visit on VPASS system.
I went to the facility using uber ride :-)
I took a long button down shirt with me in case they would refuse my attire. (They did not)
You should get tokens for photos before you pass the security. ( I had to walk back cause i didn't know this, thankfully I asked)
From entering to reaching to visiting room took me about 20 minutes.
My LO didn't arrive, I asked CO's two times if they can call again. I waited for him like 30 minutes :-( so it was a waste of time.
He Finally Came! we hugged and kissed each other. I think I can say we were lucky cause our hugs and kisses might took literally 1 minute.
It was like a dream come true for me because I haven't seen him since september 2015 and meeting took place on september 2017.
He will be released on 2021 by Grace of God.

I would happily answer any questions and help if I can

Hi. I was wondering if anyone can help me. I'm under the impression that this facility is for those who are sick or need some type of mental health assistance. Then I read about the firehouse. My LO is supposed to be transfered here in June, he isn't sick or in any need of mental health assistance, he's supposed to be going back to fire camp. If anyone can explain any of these it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

While I dont know for sure maybe they want him to work in the firehouse?
Or maybe an evaluation for fire camp?
Just guessing here.
