Visitation Policies:

Inmates are responsible for sending applications for visitation to friends or family. An application must be filled out, and the inmate is responsible for notifying friends or family of approval. All inmates are eligible for visitation, unless that privilege has been suspended. Most general population inmates are allowed to have contact visitation. Inmates who are still in reception or have restrictions are limited to non-contact visits. Death row inmates may also receive contact visits, unless that has been suspended.

Some inmates are allowed to have family visits, which can last 30-40 hours. These visits are limited to one every 3-5 months. Visitation is typically held on Saturdays, Sundays, New Year’s Day, Christmas Day, July 4th, and Thanksgiving Day. Actual visitation times may vary slightly by institution. Some institutions schedule visits by appointment.

All adult visitors must provide a valid government ID. Every adult visitor must fill out a pass each time he/she visits. Visitors must consent to a search or a metal detector scan.
