To help you keep in contact with family and friends while you are in prison, please bring their full names, dates of birth, phone numbers and addresses with you, written on a piece of paper.
If you are an adult male and are remanded/sentenced in a Lincoln Court, there is a high probability you will go to HMP Lincoln. The address is HMP Lincoln, Greetwell Road, Lincoln LN2 4BD. The phone number for your friends/family to book a visit is 01522 663172 and they can receive further support from LAT’s FIRST Centre staff (Family Information and Release Support Team) by phoning 01522 663355. Please note that FIRST Centre will only be able to talk about you with family and friends if they have your consent first.
Upon arrival at the prison, you will be entitled to a 2 minute reception phone call. During this call, it is useful to make sure your family/friend has your prison number (you will be issued with this on arrival at the prison) and the visits booking telephone number. On the next working day you will attend a prison induction when you will be able to fill in a form to ask for your family and friends phone numbers to be put onto your phone account. The numbers will usually take 2-3 days to be approved.
Your family and friends can also keep in contact using www.emailaprisoner.com and www.prisonvoicemail.co.uk. You may find it useful to give your family and friends these details before you attend court.
