Visitor Policy

Interview with Striker

JM: How often could you receive visitors?
Striker: Once a week we were allowed visitors. The day depended on what letter your last name started with. Visitations were usually limited to about 15 minutes or so, but if it wasn't too busy, sometimes a sympathetic guard would let you visit for 30 minutes or more.

JM: Was the check-in process lengthy for those who came to see you?
Striker: Not as far as I know. All that was required was to show a valid ID and have it checked against a list of people you've designated as being allowed to visit you. I believe you could only have a maximum of five people on this list at one time, though you occasionally had the option of changing this.

JM: What was the visiting environment like?
Striker: There were three orange booths, each separated with a thick sheet of bulletproof glass, and each containing a phone set into the wall. If you had more than one person visiting, and you were alone in the visiting area, the booths were small enough and close enough together that you could pick up two phones and hold one up to each ear to simultaneously talk to both visitors at the same time.
