    Post Pictures, Men Vs. women at TDCJ?

    I go see mt GF regularly at Terrace unit (Crain) in Gatesville. Believe it or not but I even went on Mother's day and they weren't taking pictures. I would have only got 2 hours with her if I hadn't went and spoke with the warden Sunday morning after driving 700 miles. It was due too no special visits for that weekend, but it wasn't crowded there at all so they let me see her.I was just wondering if they took pictures at men's unit's on this special day(May 2010)?? I have been to see her 4 times in the past year and they only were taking pictures once during this year, unfortunately not on any of my visits. Are the rest of TDJC unit's this cold hearted?? Just Wondering??

    Photos are only taken on the first full weekend of each month for all TDCJ units. Occasionally some will have an extra weekend for a special charity, but this seems to be increasingly rare.

    Are you sure of this?? Because at Terrace unit they just post it about 3 weeks before they will take them and thats the only notice they give.

    At all the mens units in TDCJ that I have had dealings with, photos are taken on the first full weekend of each month. The women's units do not always follow the same rules - the Warden at each unit can set extra rules for their unit (men's or women's).

    Yup. You just have to organise your trip around the photo weekends like I do.

    Photos are a priviledge for the families and inmates, and are usually taken so that the money can go to charity. COs generally get grumpy when it is there assignment to take them (in our experience) because they would rather not have the hassle.

    Also, check with the unit to see if they will accept coins or notes. Coffield now only accepts notes to pay for the photos, even though you are not supposed to take notes into the facility (if you need change, too bad).

    At the FCI my pal is at, you have to by photo tickets in advance, but they will take photos on every visit. I don't know how many pics our daily limit is yet, but I intend to max it out on my first visit this spring when the roads are a bit better.

    Federal prisons are not like TDCJ prisons.

    Oh I know, I was just showing how different places have different policies... perhaps I should have stayed out of the convo, as it wasn't relevant.
