I would send a few pictures with a letter. I know books are okay when mailed and would think pictures would be as well. As for a limit, I'm not  sure about that but you could call the mail room.

You should be able to call the main line and ask for someone in the commissary department. I was able to do this when my husband was in county. Not sure if it'll be the same for DOC. Would you happen to know though if your LO was searched when he got to NRC or not. My husband is trying to take a few pictures with him may in case mail is super backed up and my letters don't reach him before he ships out. He was told that they didn't search them up until a few weeks ago they started searching.

IDOC INMATE TRANSFERS / Re: Institutional transfers

Most inmates are told they are placed accordingly..  Even if they put in for a transfer to a specific prison, they can move them to their other choices.. They used to have to put 3 choices down for transfers.

He can get a train ticket and they will take him to the train or you can pick him up whichever works best for y'all but you have to let them know as he's processing out.
