Default Family member passing notification

Does anyone know how to get into contact with someone who's in reception to let them know or pass along that a family member has passed? Besides mail.

If there is a chaplain's office that often is the quickest way and is by far the best way to assure yourself the news will be delivered with some compassion. Call the center and ask for the chaplain.

Depending on the relation to the inmate, they may allow them a special call to hear the news. When my husband's brother passed, they allowed him a call inside the yard captain's office to hear the news from a family member. Cdub is correct that the chaplain is usually the most efficient route. Be aware, though, that they are not always Mon-Fri 9-5 positions so it may take a bit to get in touch with them.

Contact the main number for CIM (909) 537-1821.
You can then chose either "1" for department menu, and then "1" for inmates services or dial "0" for operator assistance.

I'm not familiar with Chino, but some facilities are a challenge to get to a live person. I've found in the past that choosing any department with a live person and then telling them that you're sorry, but you don't know the extension for the person you're looking for will usually be your most direct route.

I'm sorry this for the passing. It's difficult news to deliver.

My man's mother dies while he has been in prison. His brother rang the Chaplain's office and the Chaplain told him then he was allowed a 'special' call to his family

Same thing happened when my hubs mom passed away.
Only difference is, I had to provide the name of the funeral home handling the body.
Hub was then allowed to speak with his father for 15 min, with no charges or usual interruptions from the recording.

But the Chaplain handled it. (this was at CCI)

Thank you I got ahold of the warden office and they are supposed to have him call his dad. They wanted to know relation to person who passed away and funeral home they are at to confirm.
