Visitor Policy

Interview with Gordy, Jeff and Philip

JM: How often could you receive visitors?
Gordy: on weekends only
Jeff: I believe visitation was Tuesdays Thursdays and Saturdays I'm not quite sure of the hours
Philip: I believe inmates were allowed 2 30 minute visitor sessions each week. Time was usually considerably shorter I counting for nmoving inmates

JM: Was the check-in process lengthy for those who came to see you?
Gordy: yes hours
Jeff: Nobody came to see me in Sarasota County because I was extradited from my home in Long Beach California and I knew nobody in Sarasota
Philip: I was told the process was about as similar to being arrested asbyoy can vet with out actually being arrested. It took nearly an hour to get in and out.

JM: What was the visiting environment like?
Gordy: behind a plane glass window with telephones on both ends so that you can communicate with the person on the other end
Jeff: Again I had no visitors so I never seen the visiting area because nobody came to visit me in Sarasota County because I was extradited from my home in Long Beach California. Other inmates told methat visitation occurred on monitors that it was video screen visitation and you actually never saw the person face to face
Philip: Visiting was done via TV monitor. Visitors were in a secure room at another location in the facility and inmates were in a locked room accompanied by a corrections officer and all conversations were uncomfortably monitored by said officer. The video screen was choppy and often you couldn't see each other.
