Okay so my bf just got transferred yesterday to Peoria. The drop off stuff is still the same basically. They can have cell phones as long as they can store it outside (most have bikes and if they have friends they can use their bikes and get a waterproof bike bag to keep cell phone out there) they can have 50$ in cash (1ís and 5ís is what my man wanted for vending machine) and two rolls of quarters. 5 pants shirts 10 pairs of socks underwear. Portable DVD player. NOT BLUERAY. Then they can have dvds. Power strip. Not extension cord. 200$ Walmart gift card not a Visa card has to be gift. Now to make things easier SECOND SHIFT IS BETTER!!! I just dropped my mans stuff off with him and they were sooo nice! So any time after 3 but before 6 is perfect. You may get lucky and be able to see your L/O. Now the home passes arenít much different than before. He had to wait 90 days to be able to get one. (Better than our 9 months of waiting lol) but after a week of them being there they can go outside the building. Which is when they can get a job. So if you are setting one up for him then make sure to say he had to wait one week after getting there before he can go. Itís soooooo much different than anything Iíve experienced. If anyone has any other questions let me know and Iíll answer as best as I can since we are still trying to figure things out. Hope this helps

Not really. They donít have to store stuff outside on the bikes anymore. If they have a cell phone then they can get a locker inside. CO Pen is a fking DICK! But most of the others are really cool. As long as they act respectful as in any other prison then the CO are pretty cool. We finally got home passes  Two weeks ago was his first one. It was amazing! And then he just went back yesterday from being on a home pass. You have to have a home phone for them to be able to come to your house. I suggest Vonage. Itís cheap and easy to set up if you have internet. You have to print off a bunch of pages to show your bill. Just make sure it doesnít say anything anywhere about call forwarding or saying that you can take vintage anywhere lol I almost messed up and sent those in. If they donít want to come home on the weekends when they get to level 4 then they can transfer those times into their IRT (inmate rec time). The whole money situation is a pain in the ass. They have now switched the bank to even further away from the center but once they hit level 3 and get the IRT then they can get an extra hour to go cash it. Still a pain in the butt tho if they have to walk. Mostly everything is pretty chill. As long as your LO doesnít mess up and is cool then it will be an easy process. Also MANY people have been getting good time. Like 4 months good time. And immediate release. My mans friends have even gotten in. One guy that was supposed to get out a week before my man is now leaving in about two weeks. He wasnít supposed to leave til August. So as long as they stay cool and donít have any violent crimes in their past or whatever then they can be qualified for it. Counselor Johnson is the best. He is pretty cool. And yeah thatís about it. Any other questions Iíll totally answer them for you.
