Post Write a letter to Daniel Heyns for longer visits at Marquette Branch Prison

My husband has been at MBP for 8 months. We have a 3 year old son who idolizes his Dad. We drive 7 hours one way for a 3 hour visit. Our visit is often 10-20 minutes shorter than it is supposed to be because people show up late for visits and the guys can't come in until all the visitors are in the visiting room. The guys have to come in through the front door, the same door you use. You do not get the time back at the end of the visit. Level V get 4 hour visits, level 1 only get 3 hours. This is ridiculous! I spoke to Doug Tjapkes from Humanity for Prisoners and he instructed to me write a letter to Daniel Heyns, the Michigan Department of Corrections Director. I encourage all of you to do so as well. I am going to start a petition ASAP and I would like everyone to sign it. You must be a registered voter to sign it. Registering is easy. You can get a form from DHS, the Secretary or State, the post office, or any branch of your local government. Please help us get longer visits with our loved ones!

Hello and welcome to PTO! Yeah, visits are a mess at many prisons and I'm sorry yours are cut short Can you get extended visits due to the distance you drive?

I've moved your thread to the Michigan sub-forum for that facility. When you've created your petition, please create a new thread in the Petition forum and post the link, or pm the link to me or any Moderator and we'll add the link to your post

I will definitely sign it when you create the petition. I have a cousin there and I would hate to think his mother and aunt would go through such issues. Most of these visitation conditions are crazy.

I only have 3 signatures on the petition. Please go to Forums, 911, prison petitions and click on Longer Visits at Marquette Branch Prison. The link is included on this page. Thank you so much! We just had our 3rd visit of the year (he has been gone since January) and we lost 27 minutes of one visit due to visitors arriving late so we ended up visiting a 3rd time and driving home afterward. Scary driving at night with a 3 year old, in the UP, in the rain with no cell coverage. Any help would be appreciated by my husband, my son and myself more than we could ever say.
