Visitor Policy

Interview with Mark

JM: How often could you receive visitors?
Mark: you were allowed 2 visits a week,and they are only 15 miutes long over a telephone thru visitor has to sign in on time before the spots are all taken or else you cant receive a visit,its terrible of how the visits are set up,and no one that has ever been incarcerated can visit you,and they have to be put on a list and then they have to be okay'd by the warden.

JM: Was the check-in process lengthy for those who came to see you?
Mark: it could be,some times you guest that would like to visit have to come hours and hours before the actuall visit even takes place.its very short when you get the visit too.if you live 6 hours away,you still only get the 15 minutes for the visit.

JM: What was the visiting environment like?
Mark: its very dark,there is always a lot f noise in the backround,and numerous times ive had my phone totally quit working so there was no way for inmates to continue talking to the person that came to visit them,and its usually always full,so you visit is then a waste and it still counts as your visit.
