Visitor Policy

Interview with Pat and Sam

JM: How often could you receive visitors?
Pat: visitors can come twice a week for 15 minute video visits. up to 4 people can come at once.
Sam: You can get visits usually once a week. In some cases, twice a week, but usually just once.

JM: Was the check-in process lengthy for those who came to see you?
Pat: they usually had to come early, wait quite some time, be searched thoroughly and leave most of their belongings in the car and always have ID to match the visiting list i had submitted.
Sam: Very much so. Some visitors usually wait hours before being able to get into the visit hall. Not to mention, the officers usually aren't very kind because most feel that those incarcerated don't deserve visitors.

JM: What was the visiting environment like?
Pat: There is no traditional visiting room as usally seen on tv because middlesex county uses a video monitor system so in every pod there is a big tv screen which had a phone connected and if you have a visit, the office calls your name and directs you to a screen which when you pick up the phone, it connects you to your family sitting in a room with a similar apparatus.
Sam: It's very cramped, usually with tables or chairs set up right next to each other. The officers walk around constantly, and will stop you at if you are touching too much or too close to your visitors. Usually the visits lasted for a half hour, but they sometimes last for an hour if you're lucky.
