Visitor Policy

Interview with Karl, Christine and Drew

JM: How often could you receive visitors?
Karl: I believe it was twice a week. THe visiting is first come first serve. Whatever pods are visiting, they allow the first 200 people that show up to visit.
Christine: I could receive visitors three times a week . One weekday and during the weekend .
Drew: twice a week on saturdays sundays and wednes days only.. . . . . .

JM: Was the check-in process lengthy for those who came to see you?
Karl: Even if you get there early you might not get in for the visit. There is a dress code. But the visits are done through video monitors, so you don't have to be searched or anything before or after a visit.
Christine: Ya . It was bad . Sometimes my family had to wait hours in order to see mbecause there was so many people there .
Drew: Yes my visitors waited 2-3 hours lines where even longer on holidays. . .. . . . . . . . . . . .

JM: What was the visiting environment like?
Karl: The visiting rooms for inmates are in the pods.
Christine: It was just a small room with four monitors and we visited through a monitor . The visits were only fifteen minutes long , which was not worth it because considering my familia had to wait hours just to see me through a screen for fifteen minutes . Something the phone that we talked didn't work or the monitor was blurry .
Drew: Visits where by TV monitor not very good. Just like making a phone call. but you could see your family, when i was their honor pods had window visits but at the time it was under construction so no one had window visits allowed during this time . / /
