JM: How often could you receive visitors? Jen: You could receive visitors 1 time a week, and for
1 hour. If there were more then 2 adults at a time
they would have to split up the hour between them. Kelsey: Once a week Cody: In Main Jail it was from 8 AM to 12 PM on Saturday morning only
for one hour. In Pre-Trial you also had only one hour a week, but
could visit anytime during the day and could split your hour up
into two 30 minute sessions.
JM: Was the check-in process lengthy for those who came to see you? Jen: No, the visitors were given an expected time to
visit. The waiting time was usually around 1 hour
to get in to visit. First come first serve list to
get in. There was limited seats to visit. Kelsey: I didn't hear any complaints Cody: No not particularly. Although I was moved from Main Jail to Pre-
Trial on Friday night after I handed in my visiting slip so when my
family showed up Saturday morning they had to leave and then
drive all the way out to the other facility to see me.
JM: What was the visiting environment like? Jen: Behind glass, and on the phone. General population
if they still do it good behavior will get you
personal contact, across from a table, and you can
have children sit on your lap.
Kelsey: In Tulare County late 1990's from #11 it was
behind a glass. Inmates are behind this half
circle shaped with a phone by each inmate.
Sometimes your phone worked and sometimes they don't Cody: Cold and sterile, talking through this weird little device set in the
glass on a cold metal stool. It was relatively private in Pre-Trial
though which I was told its not like in Man Jail. You have your own
little closed cell and so does the other person and they call you
over the intercom when your time is up.
