Anyone with aloved one going to bootcamp beware, you may not hear from this person for awhile and when you do hear from them they won't exactly be able to tell you what's going on in there ,as all letters are screened by the facility's staff .if the staff does not like what is written they will not allow the letters to leave.As a former inmate at duquoin Imust say I do not agree with the way inmates are treated because I feel as though the officers like to play games with inmates and take out their personal aggressions on them,especially during intake in which they like to throw them around and hit them while they are shaving.I don't think those methods are the proper way to gain respect,granted we are in there for a reason I just don't believe physical punishment is justifiable in this country.I also believe some of the physical strain was very extreme.An inmate in bootcamp cannot convey what is going on to the outside world so don't be surprised if think their not telling you everything because their not! The most important thing you can do for them is offer encouragement to help them stick to it so they will come home soon.I saw many guys give up and go to prison to serve their full sentences and that upset me.It's tough but it can be done.Be careful what you send to them as far as your letters are concerned.The staff reads those as well if there is anything they don't like such as profanity or sexual content the Inmate may be punished for it.I hope this information is helpful.Post any questions you may have and I will try to respond.

oh my goodness!  Well that is very good information for folks to know.  I agree with you about physical punishment.  There was a story on the tv news about a kid that died in boot camp just last week.

Jgsgirl, at some point the day he is released, he will get a visit from IDOC, to hook him up, they come and they call at ALL hours to check through the monitor, you must have a designated phone line just for it ...  I think he will be given a few hours once released to make it home, some guys when released have to take buses home, which can takes hours.

He will get all the rules and if he is paroling to your home, they will be in touch with you and you will receive rules and have to sign agreements also ..

Du Quoin, Well its a small town known for the state fair, they just opened a new hotel there called Fairgrounds Inn.
They have a Mc Donalds of course, Wal Mart, and several other small eating places. It is about 18 miles for Carbondale Ill. There you can find all most anything. Hope this helps you some. I don't have any info on the boot camp except when I take my dog out walking I will see the inmates working on the fair grouds planting flowers etc.

We have stayed @ the Super 8 in Du Quoin. The 24 hr Walmart is across the street. The hotel is very clean and comparatively priced. I have also stayed in Carbondale which has everything you need and then some (a mall, movie theatre and numerous eateries).

Hi alexis...right now the camps appear to be full...so it's hard to say....some of our members' loved ones have been waiting over five months to get into a bootcamp...it's an awful situation...their time doesn't count whle they are waiting and some have waited longer than the actual sentence they are to serve out in bootcamp...I hate to be the bearer of bad news....if your guy does get moved to a bootcamp right away, please let us know.  Have you read the Ten Steps to Understanding the DOC?  And have you registered for VINE????   It's all in that forum on the home page...

Alexis, I know someone who got to Stateville the beginning of October and he just went into bootcamp within the last week.  Hope this helps...

My boyfriend just got sent to DuQuoin on Monday (December 4), and he was sent to Stateville on October 12.  I'm not trying to be rude, but I think your boyfriend might be there longer than two weeks.  Most guys are there for six to seven weeks before they get sent to camp.  My advice to you is to call Illinois Department of Corrections in Springfield to check on his paper work.  Stateville must okay his paper work, then they send it to IDOC, who must okay it, also.  Once this happens the person can go to boot camp, but this is a long process.  Best of luck!

My question is about visitation at DuQuoin.  I know on the website it says immediate family only.  I called and they confirmed what the website said.  Is this true?  Can anyone give me any advice?

I don't know if they make any exceptions....but boot camp is very strict...that's why it's short and intense....they don't allow anyone outside of the inmate's immediate family.  No friends, girlfriends, etc....You'll be able to write and I'm sure they are permitted phone calls after a certain length  of time....I know it's going to be tough for you to get through this...but writing wil help keep you both close...

Thank-you for the information.  I was afraid this was true, but I will find a way to make it through.  I should have prepared myself better, but I never actually thought this would be the case. 

My boyfriend told me that he could only keep up to ten letters at a time in his foot locker.  Is this true?  He got this info from another inmate at Stateville.  I'm assuming it probably is true, because the inmates usually know what they're talking about.  He told me to mail him letters once a week (I write him everyday), is this a good suggestion?

m1b2y: I was just released from Dixon Springs Boot camp a few months ago.  You can not have any visits for the first 60 days at Boot Camp and then after it can only be from immediate family. No exceptions.  They check id's and if the last names don't match then you need more proof such as birth certificate and such. They are very strict with this and everything else.  Also he can only have 10 letters and 3 pictures at a time.  If he gets caught with more it is considered contraband and he can get in trouble for it.  He can however send a bunch of letters home or just dispose of them after hes done with them.  He is going through a strict schedule and will have very little time to write letters.  The best way is to contact him is to write him.  At Dixon Springs it would take about 8 days total to receive a letter and 2-3 days to send one out.  They read every letter word for word. It can not have any sexual content, gang information, alcohol and drug information or anything negative.  If it does they will just tear up the letter. They also screen the pictures for sexual content and or alcohol/drugs/gangs.  He will get 1 10min phone call a week after he has been in the program for 30days.  He only gets one chance to make that call and it will be on the weekend. If no one is available he will not be given another opportunity or allowed to call someone else.  Another thing is his phone call privileges can be taken away as a form of punishment.  Be glad he is in Boot Camp and not serving his original sentence.  He should be home in no time.

If you need anything else feel free to ask.

Does anyone know when is the first time a boot camper can send a letter out? Is it after 30 days? Also, are they given paper/envelopes or do we need to send that to them?

They are allowed to send one the first day they are at Boot Camp.  When they first arrive they are given all there essentials including a pen, notepad, and hygiene. After that they can purchase pre-stamped envelopes and a notepad from the Inmate Commissary. They are allowed to spend $3 a week to buy deodorant, soap, stamped envelopes.  If he plans on writing a lot you can send him money. That money can ONLY be used for sending out mail and can not be used on any other commissary.  The only things you are allowed to send him is money, and positive letters. No books, no magazines, no pre-stamped envelopes.
