Hi my fiancé was at Delano they said he went to ironwood Friday. I'm sure he's there because that is we're he put in for when he was at tehachapi(3weeksago) but I can't anyone to answer at this prison. Does anyone know how to get someone on the phone? And also how long before he gets to use the phone there?

Hello, I'm new to this whole thing and I had a couple questions. Please forgive me if this is in the wrong thread. My first question is, does anyone know if they're on lockdown? I haven't received any calls since Sunday which is odd. Secondly, can they get mail while on lockdown? I sent one June 30th but as of July 6th it wasn't received and now I'm worried he wont get it at all if they're on lockdown. Thanks for taking the time to read this... I appreciate any insight you might have. :-)

Default Son Just transfererred to Ironwood

hello my son was just transferred to ironwood after 3 months at reception in delano. I have a few questions and was hoping someone could answer them

First. How do they make calls , is it by collect call, calling card from commissary or some other way?

Second he was classified as level one at delano and they told him he would go to e yard there or corcran level 1, I noticed there are level 3 sny yards there and a level 1..he has 74 days left on his sentence, just want to know if he most likely would go to level 1 there?

Thanks any info is really helpful

It could still be a while till he calls. It depends on the procedure for signing up for phone calls at the prison. And how often they are allowed to call.

Offender connect is for all CDCr facilities. You don't need to sign up with anyone else.

Once they are mainlined, they are on what is called "fish row" for about two weeks. This is where they are processed into the prison and eventually housed in a cell or dorm. They can't make phone calls during this time. Hope that helps!

it helps alot thanks for your time and information. I did have one other question.

He was at delano where he was classified as level 1 and counselors recommended few other level 1 prisons but he ended up at ironwood.

Ironwood ive notice has few level 3 yards and a level 1, I was wondering if they ever put level 1 inmates in higher yeards because of space issues, or would he most likely be placed in the level 1 yard there?

Thanks again for your answers
