Visitation Quota

There is no quota but each inmate will receive only 2 free visits per week. These
are controlled by the inmate and they decide who receives them and may be used only for
visits at the facility. All remote (from home or elsewhere) visits are at a charge.

Segregation/Disciplinary Inmates

These visits will be held on Wednesday nights only from 7:30-10 p.m. No appointment is needed
simply show up at the facility and your visits will be handled manually. These visits are first come first serve but also are dictated by classification, etc. Your visit will be handled as quickly as possible with these factors in mind.
