Our friend, Lori Alberts, of Link of Love, sent me the information you see below. Delaware is moving hundreds of inmates, about 15 at a time, to PA.
When they get where they are going you should CALL the prison and get the name and email address of the WARDEN of that institution! Then CALL me if your loved one has problems. 302-423-4067
I know a lot of families are concerned that their Loved One might be shipped out of State to PA, so I compiled these papers to get them this information. The important thing is to go on www.vinelink.com and to hit the “Get Notified” button. This way once your Loved One is Moved to Camp Hill, PA you will know and when they get moved to the next prison you will get notified as well.
Camp Hill is only temporary so do not send a lot of money for them to buy items, as they may get thrown away and then you will have to re-purchase the same items. It will be tough on them for a couple of months but the opportunities are better in PA if they are willing to work for them. Depending on where they get moved, it might be a couple of hours drive but in PA they usually allow for longer visits, so with the phone numbers you can call and see what their procedures are.
Also find out their procedures for filing a complaint – your filing a complaint – about that prison.
In case you don’t know it, any prison in America is a place where “anything can happen and usually does”! So save (obtain) the information herein so you are ready for trouble!
Hope this helps.
