Visitation Policies:

  1. In order to visit an offender, the visitor must be on the offender’s visitors’ list. The offender has been given information on how to put someone on his/her visitor’s list. If you are uncertain as to whether you are on the offender’s visitors’ list, please contact the offender you wish to visit. Do not call the facility for this information; it cannot be given over the phone.
  2. Visitors enter Department facilities and the visiting areas at their own risk. The Department of Correction will assume no liability for any injuries or damage or loss of property as a result of a person entering a visiting area or any other area within a facility.
  3. All visitors entering a Department of Correction facility shall be minimally subject to a frisk search by staff, which shall include the breast and groin area being physically searched. With the visitor’s consent, this search may be conducted by staff of either gender. Additionally, visitors entering visiting areas shall be subject to additional searches using metal detectors and/or other approved search methods.
  4. Specially-trained search dogs (K-9s) may be used as a part of the search process both prior to a visitor entering the visiting area and in the actual visiting room during visits. Any person refusing to be searched at any time shall not be permitted to enter the facility and the visit may be terminated if the visitor refuses to be searched or contraband/prohibited property is found on the visitor or in the visitor’s property. If a visitor does not wish to be searched either by hand or by using other means, the visitor should not attempt to enter a Department of Correction facility.
  5. Visitors must register with staff prior to entering the visiting area. Visitors will be required to sign the entry log and be approved for the visit before they will be allowed to enter the visiting area.
  6. All visitors who are 16 years old or more shall be required to show picture identification. All visitors must present valid identification each time they visit.
  7. All minors shall present a valid birth certificate each time they visit. The only forms of identification accepted by the DOC are: a valid driver’s license from the state of residence, a valid state photo identification card from the state of residence, a valid photo military identification card (active-duty only), a valid passport and a valid government identification card, including foreign governments
  8. Visitors under the age of 18 years of age must be accompanied by their parent or legal guardian at all times while on facility grounds. Children shall not be left alone at any time while on facility grounds.
  9. Parents or legal guardians shall be responsible for the behavior of their children and a visit may be ended if the children become disruptive. In cases where a parent or legal guardian cannot accompany a minor child, the Warden may approve another responsible adult to accompany the child during a visit.

Deposit/Commissary Accounts:

  1. Trust Fund Account – This is an offender’s commissary account! Put money here for food, hygiene, and property items.
  2. AdvancePay Phone Account – If you want your offender to call only you, you can place money in this account for pre-paid phone minutes. You can also sign up for text alerts to reload this account, so you never miss a call.
  3. PIN Debit Phone Account – This is for your offender to make phone calls to persons on his/her call list.
  4. Debit Link Account – This is for messaging, as well as services that will be coming in the future, such as subscriptions for music, movies, and books. $1.00 will get you 100 link units.
  5. Message Link Account – If you want to send money for messages only, this is the account. You can add a video or photo to your messages – but don’t expect them back, as offenders can’t send photos or videos. $.27 = 1 credit = 1 message or photo. Video = $.81 = 3 credits.
  6. Video Visitation Account – See your loved one’s face! With no travel required. You can even do video visits with your phone now! You’ll still also have to set up your video visitation account, but this is the account for money to fund your video visits. 10 minutes = $3.30; 25 minutes = $8.25.
