  1. I find it odd that this older article states that the FDOC will introduce video visitation the the sprint of 2018 and then this week the FDOC sends out a memo that they plan to cut our contact visitation in half because of contraband and lack of staff starting in , you guessed it, April 7 2018 (spring of 2018)
    We have a petition with over 4,550 signatures and counting at change.org – search Stop FDOC from taking visit time. We also plan to boycott all funds to jpay and the purchase of tablets canteen whatever it takes if they take our visits. You cannot replace getting to hold your loved ones hand or a father holing his baby with a tablet!

    • Just want to say Thank You Jewie for being our voice and taking the initiative to motivate us to stand up and fight for what is right. We are trying to teach our children less video time, more family time and now the DOC is wanting to take that away. Are they truly promoting family time importance as they claim in every letter they write and every post they make…NO they are doing just the opposite. I am offering my time to helping you in any way needed. Again, thank you and God bless you.

    • Yes you may have a good point, BUT,
      Since there was such a outcry of cutting visitation times, they are MOVING loved ones out of range for loved ones to be able to travel to visit!

  2. can someone please tell me when they are going the spring care packages? My son went into Lake Correctional in November, and I want to order him a radio and shoes, etc. The websites still show the Winter packages or only private locations. Am I missing something? Thanks

  5. My fiancé said they have passed out memos in his dorm saying video visitation is now up and running and you can buy the tablets for them, but when I go on Jpay.com and try to sign up for video visitation, it says the inmate you have selected is not eligible for video visitation, and it isn’t just him, it’s everyone I have on my contact list on Jpay, even two people at other financial institutions, anyone know what’s up with that?

    • Not all facilities actually have video visitation. Most that do are county not State. I prefer my in person visit.
