  7. Admin Thu, Apr 05 2012 12:30 AM

    Top left of this page is the Inmate Search in the orange area. However, often an MCC will not list inmates who have not been sentenced. Your best bet is to call them (619) 232-4311.

  8. angie Sat, Apr 07 2012 3:51 PM

    I have sent a total of 2 visiting forms & my fiance who is an inmate at MCC says counselor hasnt received any of them. I filled out application & signed, does anyone know how long the process is for approval? the 1st application was mailed over a month ago.

  9. Admin Sun, May 06 2012 12:19 AM

    Don't get frustrated. keep sending the forms in until it gets approved. They control the situation and approving visits are low on their priority list.
