Visitor Policy

Interview with Kaylie, Alfredo and Rosa

JM: How often could you receive visitors?
Kaylie: Once a week.
Alfredo: High Point Detention only allows 2 visits a week and it can not be the same person twice. (Lame)
Rosa: 1x a week for 10 minutes and that was all and some times if they were short handed we did not even have it

JM: Was the check-in process lengthy for those who came to see you?
Kaylie: It depended on if they came on crowded day or not. Most often I think it took like around 15 minutes or so.
Alfredo: The check in process wasn't lengthy but I heard from some folks that the guards were really disrespectful (not to my visitors but to some).
Rosa: no chek it ws quick they had to produce a identification card which had to be state issued but if you did not have one than you could not visit

JM: What was the visiting environment like?
Kaylie: It was kinda big room. We had to sit on onde side of the glass window and they would sit on the other and talk through phones.
Alfredo: The visiting environment is nothing more than a glass wall and a telephone. Sometimes you can barely hear because the phones are garbage and the back ground noise from the other tiers drowns out your conversation. They could use a little more privacy because some inmates who don't even have visits can just walk right by your visit and interrupt.
Rosa: you visited over the phone thru a glass partition. it was very crowded and inmates tried to over talk one another and the elevators were always broke so that stopped visittion an they always seem to cut your visits short so they could put as many on the elevator as possible
