Visitor Policy

Interview with Katy, Sarah and Laura

JM: How often could you receive visitors?
Katy: Twice a week.
Sarah: Visitiation was offered twice or three times a week for half an hour. I cannot remember if they were 2 or 3 times.
Laura: twice a week for 30 minutes a peice, it went by really fast, in the hole you only get 1

JM: Was the check-in process lengthy for those who came to see you?
Katy: I had to say who I wanted to visit me. Then I had to get in touch with the person to tell them what time they needed to come. The times change all the time. They had to show ID. You only have 24 hours to get in touch with that person to let them know.
Sarah: The check in time was not. They came to the visitiation area, provided their ID, informed the officer who they were there to see and would wait for the scheduled visit.
Laura: I have no idea, I don't think so. I know you always had to have your picture id but other than that they didn't give them a hard time

JM: What was the visiting environment like?
Katy: You go into a room with tables and glass between you and the visitor. You talk into a phone which didn't always work. If you were in the hole (suicide watch) you went shackled to the visit.
Sarah: The visiting areas consisted of 10 stalls separated by a thin piece of metal. Each stall had a stool, metal, that moved very little as it was bolted. There was a phone that each party had to pick up the phone and the conversation would take place. It was difficult to hear due to how many were there.
Laura: there was 10 seats all in a row, well they were metal stools with a little glass window. and your visitors had one stool too but if more than one person came they had to stand and it echoed really bad on the inmate side. You have to talk over a corded phone too
