When a prisoner first comes into prison it may take several days before regular contact can be made with family and friends. The best way for you to contact a prisoner, before a visit or phone call is arranged, is to write him/her a letter.
There are rules and regulations regarding contact with prisoners - including visits, phone calls and mail. There are also rules regarding information which the Tasmania Prison Service can and cannot release about specific prisoners (e.g. release dates, classification information, etc).
