Visitor Policy

Interview with Dale

JM: How often could you receive visitors?
Dale: I believe we were granted an hour or so twice per week, so long as an inmate was in good standing.

JM: Was the check-in process lengthy for those who came to see you?
Dale: I can't speak to the experience of my visitors, but I don't remember them complaining of any real hassles. The impression I got is that things moved quickly enough for them.

JM: What was the visiting environment like?
Dale: This much actually was a great deal like what one sees on television; there were a series of cubicle-like partitions with stools on either side of bulletproof glass windows. We spoke through telephones, not all of which functioned properly. The worst part, in my experience, was not being able to hug or hold the hands of my loved ones.
