JM: How often could you receive visitors?
Bruce: Work release and work furlough inmates were not allowed to have visitors as we could just see them on our hours we were released.
Jen: You can have 3 visits per week with one person at a time or an adult with a child
Crystal: Since we were on work release we were not allowed to receive visitors. Not sure what the policy was for those in the tents who did not work release.
Allison: Only when people would comr to visit but most the time they come n I eas working
Deanne: Not applicable. I did not receive any visitors because I was able to leave each day, therefore did not have any reason to.
JM: Was the check-in process lengthy for those who came to see you?
Bruce: Nobody ever came to see me as I was not allowed to have any visitors. Work release and work furlough inmates saw their friend and family while there were out during the day
Jen: Every person that came to visit me was highly unhappy at the length of time and process for check in and how rudely they were treated as well.
Crystal: This is not applicable to me because I was on work release and we had a policy of no visitors allowed on the premises of the jail.
Allison: Yes anf misy the time when people came they where told I was at work or they would say the comp was down . B
Deanne: Unknown or not applicable. I did not receive any visitors because I was able to leave each day, therefore did not have any reason fr anyone to come visit.
JM: What was the visiting environment like?
Bruce: There was none. Inmates would get to see their family and friends while there were out during their release hours. Nobody on the work release or work furlough sides were allowed to have any visitors at all so there was not even a visitation area for us to use anywhere.
Jen: A visitor would sit on one side and and they inmate would sit on the other side well being handcuffed to the table with both hands. There was absolutely No contact allowed ever, no hug, no kiss, no touch even between children and inmates, visits were very stressful for all involved
Crystal: This is not applicable to me because I was on work release and we had a policy of no visitors allowed on the premises of the jail. If someone wanted to visit you at the tents they would be outside as well because there are no actual buildings to sit in, only on the male side.
Allison: The visit was just over the phone and a vidii camera recorded you and u would see a tv screen and pick up a phone and u get to talk to your visitor in that phone ans see them in the t v u couldnt even see them in person
Deanne: Unknown or not applicable. I did not receive any visitors because I was able to leave each day, therefore did not have any reason to. I am not sure if Tent City Jail inmates are even able to have visitation, although if they are I would assume they are on a t.v. screen or through a wire fence.
