would like to know if i have been approved for visiting?

Hi the father of my daughter is in that prison, I would like to know if when visiting him, is it over a glass window or face to face ? My 1 year old hasn’t seen her dad for quite some time already and I know she misses him.. And because we don’t live close by, I’m just woundering how are the visits like. I will be going there in a few weeks and that’s my only concern. Thank you

Thank You for your time.

I’ve received a couple of phone calls from Angela S…..z she says shes from Wasco State prison leaves her number and ext. and ask me to call her back. She’s the CMPR’s secretary. First- What does CMPR stand for. why would she be calling me and wanting me to call her back? I don’t know who she’s calling about either. I know 3 or 4 men locked up at Wasco right now. Anyone else getting/gotten calls if so What did she want.
Thnx!!!!!

I was approved to visit inmate out of wasco state prison, does that carry over to where the inmate was transferred. he is at corcran prison

sandra fellers

well I’m trying to understand how this works. the person answering these question should have the specific answers. what’s the point. You are just delegating everyone to go to websites. I’ve already read how it works but it does not say anything about
being approved at reception center and the approved person is me. wasco is the main reception center. does the approval follow to where inmate is placed please yes or no

Byron and I sent in our applications about 2 weeks ago to visit our grandson. We would like to know if we have been accepted. Do you need his name on this format? His mother wants to come with us and has the signed document and not sent it it. We drive from 2 hours out of Wasco and want to know if we three can travel together on July 29, 2017?
Please let us know – we would be so grateful. Byron & Helga Medd.
