I would like to know how find out an inmates address. I have his cdcr # but that’s all I have. I don’t know where to mail the letter to. Can anyone help? I’ve tried calling north kern but I can’t get through. It’s automated and I keep pressing the extension but it just takes me back to the beginning of the recording.

Dear Warden,‎ I am writing to you concerning my son “Mohamed”, who is housed in your ‎facility. I am a Saudi National who got married to an American lady “Ginger”. I had ‎taken Mohamed away from his mother when he was 8 years old. When he couldn’t ‎assimilate to Saudi people, who were prejudice against him due to his American ‎blood, he was returned to USA to his Mom after 8 years.

hello! I am going to visit someone tomorrow at north kern, and the drive is about 4 hours. I was told I do not need to make an appointment since he is still in reception and the visit is through glass. However, when reading online about the visits on the website it keeps referring to making an appointment. I do not want to drive all the way out there for nothing, Do you know if it is necessary to make an appointment?

Dear Miss Pennywel, NKSP Warden: On August 30, 2013, an Inmate was sent to NKSP for Reception and Processing. On Sept. 14, and 15, 2013, I (Bruce M. Ireland) tried to visit Inmate Michael L. Turner, with an approved V-PASS! When I arrived on both dates, I was refused Visitation! The only thing told to me, was that I neede a consent form. I replied to the Visiting Fuard at the desk…that I applied on-line! Again, I was remissed. I wrote to the Inmate for a Consent Form (106)! Yet, the inmate has ADHD, and, is not understanding of the… Read more »

I want to know who can we write to about getting visits, every time we try to use the vpass, it says all hours and days are full, and when we call, they are rude, and their are no openings, who can we write about this problem to, these inmate are entitled to visits, and we are unable to make a appointment. Please help!!

Prison Path,
That is exactly the problem!! We shouldn’t have to worry about “blowback” to our loved ones, what is wrong with this system. I fear for my son’s safety.

Hello, my fiancé just got transferred to Delano. When I found out I went online and got his information to write to him. I sent it to P.O Box 567, I included his CDCR#. BUT I recently got a letter from him 2 days ago, and noticed he sent it from a different P.O Box #. My question is: Will he still get the letters I sent him to P.O Box 567?

I am wondering about some things I want to send to my son, such as pens, pencils, tracing paper and colored pencils. Is there a link to a complete list? The one I saw, does not include these items on the can or cannot send list. PS- He is still in reception.

Please note that we added information above re: telephone calls to an inmate. You can also send mail to your family member, but you need the inmate’s ID no. for the address and the institution’s address.

Hi, I am wondering if visitation is allowed with an inmate who arrived at the prison, only for holding purposes? By holding purposes I am referring to him being released into a program and since he was housed near Arizona for the duration of his sentence, he had to be bussed home (5 hours away), and is now encountering what they call a layover with the busses before they transport them over to the program. So, while they are waiting to be bussed out, are they allowed to recieve visitors? I did fill out paper work for the first CDRC… Read more »

My boyfriend just arrived to north kern on 11/21/18 he got sentenced to 2 years
He called me yesterday but I had to add funds and the call dropped. How can I know if he’s still in reception? And online it doesn’t state his parole date online will that show up anytime soon?
Also on the court order it says his time will be in Chino men’s prison but since he got transferred to kern will he be serving his time there? ….. it’s a 4 hour drive for me please tell me it’s temporary
