    Am trying to help my nephew who will be released from Federal to State in 2012. Does he come here and you determine where he will be sent? Does he apply for residence where he would like to be? He has a long sentence and is Non-violent sex offender. I can not locate any helpful information on your processing center. How do your inmate phone privilages work? What type of mail can they receive? what are they allowed to bring with them when they transfer? Your assistance is apprecaited.

  2. Roberta Anderson Fri, Jan 21 2011 9:46 AM

  5. kyndle Sat, Feb 18 2012 1:05 PM

    Someone I know just got sent to the rdc and from what I'm understanding they cant write or call for 30 days. Is there anyway you can make sure they have the money on their books so they can write or call when they can.....

  6. rebecca collins Thu, Mar 08 2012 2:52 PM

    if they already have a doc number, how long do they have to stay at rdc?

  7. rebecca Thu, Mar 08 2012 2:54 PM

  8. Tonya Mon, Apr 09 2012 9:19 PM

    Inmates are allowed to write,they are given 2 stamps and envelopes when they arrive,no calls or visits,my fiancee has been there since 3/23/2012,

  9. Marria Thu, Apr 19 2012 3:04 PM

    Do you have to be on a list to write the inmate that's at Rdc I know about the phone list but what about when you write them?

  10. Jamie Sat, Apr 28 2012 9:24 AM

    Why are they sent there in the first place? who decides or makes the decision on what inmate gets transferred here? Is it to determine what facility they belong in? What type of "DIAGNOSTICS" is done.I am not quite sure what the sole purpose of this facility is about. Does anyone familiar with the Indiana Court/Jail system have information? Thank-you

  11. Susan Wed, May 09 2012 3:22 PM

    Can you send paper, envelopes and stamps to an inmate in RDC?

  12. Nunya Sun, Jun 24 2012 7:39 PM

    They are sent there to get processed and evaluated so they can put them in the best prison for them. Some prisons are full. It's just a part of the process.

  13. Jenn Marie Sun, Jun 24 2012 10:53 PM

    My boyfriend has already been to prison before and has a DOC # but on his IDOC info online it says he is central office Admin Inbound... does that mean he still has to go to RDC or will they send him straight to a prison?

  14. isa Wed, Jun 27 2012 3:53 PM

    All males that are sentenced to prison, go to RDC first, they are evaluated there and it is decided which prison they will go in.

  15. mary Fri, Jul 27 2012 3:35 PM

    Someone told me we can send paper and stamps and envelopes to an inmate in rdc, is this true?

  16. Mary Fri, Jul 27 2012 3:50 PM

    You do not have to be on a list to write them, after they are sent to where they are going, there is a phone list and a visitor's list. In order to send money to them thru jpay, you have to be on the visitation list.In RDC, you can write to them, but they cannot call you, nor can you visit. They can be at RDC up to 45 days.

  17. Kaycee Wed, Aug 22 2012 7:13 PM

  21. Shaely Fri, Feb 08 2013 12:48 AM

    If I sent a letter to the correctional facility & it was supposed to go to RDC...will they get my letter.? The address was only off by a number and it's on the same road...I put their DOC number on the envelope...I just hope they get the letter....!

  22. Anita Elmore Fri, Mar 15 2013 8:33 PM

    How do I send money to someone at RDC. My boyfriend was just transferred there and sent a letter asking for money. I know he had money on his books before he left I thought that would go with him to use in RDC and Prison.

  23. Rochelle Beamer Mon, Mar 18 2013 8:49 PM

    Jpay is how. Need their doc number. But no clue how long it takes to get to them. Their money from jail takes at least 6 weeks to transfer. They can't call. No visitation. My bro has thirty days left and they took him from Wayne co to rdc with only that left. We have yet to receive a letter. My mom is very concerned by this. Glad to hear someone got one. What was the date on the letter if u don't mind me asking. I read somewhere that rdc only sends out inmate mail on Fridays. But not sure if that's true. Wish there was a website with real info for the rdc.

  24. JOANI Thu, Apr 11 2013 12:23 AM

    MY HUSBAND HAS BEEN IN RDC FOR THREE WEEKS NOW AND SEEMS LIKE FOREVER. WE CAN NOT SEND ANYTHING EXCEPT WRITE TO THEM. HE WENT DOWN WITH MONEY ON HIS BOOKS AND THATS REALLY THE BEST WAY TO START THEM WITH SOME $. I HOPE TO GET A CALL FROM GHIM SOON THIS IS REALLY HARD BEING APART. IF YOU WRITE AND THEY GET MOVED THEY WILL STILL GET THEIR MAIL.

  25. JOANI Thu, Apr 11 2013 12:29 AM

    YOU CAN NOT SEND NOTHING TO THEM ONLY LETTERS WHILE IN RDC. THEY SUPPLY THEM WITH VERY FEW THINGS. MY HUSBAND DID WRITE ME AND SAID ITS NOT A VACATION SPOT. UR IN A TWO MAN CELL 23 HOURS 7X10 TWO BUNKS AND A TOILET. YOU HAVE 15 MINUTES TO EAT AND HAVE TO WATCH A MOVIE BUT THERE GOOD ONES LIKE WITH ADAM SANDLER I THINK HE SAID TWICE A WEEK THEY DO THAT THIS IS IN PLAINFEILD INDIANA. IT REALLY SUCKS TO HEAR BUT THATS WHAT HE WROTE TO ME.

  26. Jody Fri, Apr 26 2013 9:12 PM

    I've been reading these posts and I want everyone who has a loved one in rdc or any correction facility, that my hart goes out to you. My son was recently moved from Grant County jail to rdc. I found this out by a voicemail informing me that I could come and get his belongings. my 22 yr old son lives with me. I have never went this long without talking to him and worry about him 24/7. To all loved ones of inmates...keep your head up!

  27. Brandy Sun, May 05 2013 9:20 PM

Can somebody give me some accurate info on all this?!?!

  36. PrisonWife Thu, Oct 03 2013 2:48 AM

    RDC is a maximum security facility where you are held until sent to prison. I have known people to stay anywhere from 9 days on up, usually no more than 45 but not guaranteed. There are two sides. One side is worse than the other. It is a luck based thing which side you end up on when you enter. While you are there you will receive all your medical testing for diseases and such. Also, they score you on a point system to find out the best prison placement. They do psychiatric evaluations and they will ask for the 3 places that you would LIKE to go, which doesn't mean you will get any of them. Unfortunately, my husband is in there now. This is my second prison sentence with him.

  37. PrisonWife Thu, Oct 03 2013 2:54 AM

    and... you can not send anything to them other than letters. By the way, when you send prison letters and have your children draw or color pictures, it has to be marker or colored pencil. No crayon. They will not be able to call anyone until they get to prison, and then they usually have to wait another week or so, depending on which prison they are at. Each inmate has to make a phone list and a visitation list before they are allowed to do each.

  38. Elizabeth Tue, Oct 22 2013 7:43 PM

    My boyfriend is suppose to be released from a county jail and the guard told him that community corrections would come and get him... He's suppose to be put on house arrest in new to this so any help would be helpful

  39. Michael Thu, Nov 21 2013 3:26 PM

    Bobbie,All of PrisonWife's info is right. NO PHONE-CALLS and NO VISITATION! My son has been at RDC for about 3 1/2wks. Got address from web site, started writing letters right then. haven't had any problems with mail. he said after about ten days the "BLUES", start kicking in. Now I'm trying to find out where they sent him. Got letter on Sat., he said he was going to New Castle, but other web site said Puntumville.
