Visitor Policy

Interview with Jenna, Diane, Norman and Andrea

JM: How often could you receive visitors?
Jenna: two times a week - had to be over 18 - so of course no mothers were able to see their children - but then again what decent parent wants their kids to see them in jail anyway 2 times a week for one hr visits a grand total of 2 hrs per week - regardless of the amount of visitors
Diane: Once or twice a week.
Norman: you could get visitors every weekend from 9am-3pm both Saturdays and sundays limit of 4 people and they had to be pre-approved first
Andrea: you are allowed to see visitors up to twice a week if you are not into any kind of disciplinary or medical issues

JM: Was the check-in process lengthy for those who came to see you?
Jenna: yes - too many visitors & not enough video screens for people to use
Diane: No I don't think so.
Norman: yes it was supposed to start at 9 am but by the time they got thru all the security measures and stuff it was more like 10-1030 am before they got thru the door and i was called for visitation
Andrea: they might have had to wait over an hour if they are caught there during something going on with the jail staff or if its an especially busy visiting day

JM: What was the visiting environment like?
Jenna: bleak - definitely made the person visiting reevaluate the relationship they are in - hahahah was the inmate they were visiting really worth the filth they had to get thru to see you - one of my visitors actually had a gun pulled out on him in the parking lot -
Diane: Gross, room with tv screen and a phone.
Norman: VERY VERY crowded. visitation was held in like a big cafeteria with a bunch of tables and chairs and they just had everyone from every unit that had visitors all together in one big room in which did not have enough chairs or space for everyone so some people would have to stand
Andrea: it is done over the phone on a monitor, you go into a room full of screens & they tell you which one your visitor is on, your visitor is in a room of the common area (public) where they have the reception area to the jail for non-inmates & staff
