Visitor Policy

Interview with Megan

JM: How often could you receive visitors?
Megan: Weekly. We were allowed visitors (unless an inmate was on lockdown, then this privelege was revoked) every Sunday.

JM: Was the check-in process lengthy for those who came to see you?
Megan: Not as far as I know. None of my visitors ever complained about this. However, policies were not clear (as far as what could be brought in, how it was searched, etc.) and it seemed as though there was preferential treatment in this process.

JM: What was the visiting environment like?
Megan: There were between 10 and 12 stations. Inmate "carrels" were situated in an L shape and visitors were in the middle. The sound was often problematic with the echoes from the visitor areas. There wasn't enough separation or insulation to really be able to hear. The phones didn't always work...they would go in and out. It was also very dirty.
