Visitor Policy

Interview with Trisha, Jared and Lucia

JM: How often could you receive visitors?
Trisha: This is my 3rd biggest complaint. You can have visitors come 3 times a week but they are all video visits. You have to fight for a camera because there are only 2 cameras for the pod and about 150 guys that want visitation. First come first serve.
Jared: On a screen minister never in person unless at court or inmate worker.they were special and couldn't talk to us no matter what.
Lucia: you could recieve visitors as often as they wanted to. the visits were over a kiosk

JM: Was the check-in process lengthy for those who came to see you?
Trisha: They have to wait and wait and wait. Its not convenient for them at all.
Jared: I don't reaaly know I never asked I just always tried to have a good conversation when my FAM. And friends came to c be in jail.
Lucia: the visitors that i had did not have to go through a process. seeing as there was no physical contact or interaction. only over a kiosk though

JM: What was the visiting environment like?
Trisha: It was over video so it was like skyping. It was more like a phone call than a visit.
Jared: It was terrible. You were in the same room as about fifty guy sand they could all see who you seen and who you seen could see them and I would have preferred to he more private. I didn't like it because a child mokester could see your child when you got visits.
Lucia: there were other inmates walking around behind me when my mother or friends came to visit because the kiosk was in the main area of the pods. in the visiting peoples area there were walls that kept some privacy for them. screens had burry connections. visitors could also visit inmates from home on a skype connection
