Visits with friends and family can be a stabilizing influence while an inmate is incarcerated and afterward. Regular visits assist individuals re-entering the community by helping to preserve healthy relationships. The Department strives to make the visiting privilege comfortable and pleasant, consistent with facility security requirements.
Unforeseen security problems may interfere with visiting, causing delayed, shortened, suspended or cancelled visits. This is unusual, but it does occasionally occur. Please contact the specific facility for further information before planning a visit.
