Visitor Policy

Interview with Karina and Taylor

JM: How often could you receive visitors?
Karina: You could have visitors every other day. It went by the first letter of your last name. The A-L was Monday, Wedneseday, Friday and M-Z were Tues, Thurs, Sat and alternating. 2 weeks of every month, there were no visitors (during general court sessions).
Taylor: twice a week.

JM: Was the check-in process lengthy for those who came to see you?
Karina: No. You had to fill out a visitation list when you were first locked up. You are supposed to put anybody on that list that you want to come see you. You can't add to it but you can take someone off. The preachers are the only ones who can get in without being on your list.
Taylor: no not really.

JM: What was the visiting environment like?
Karina: The visitor and inmate are separated by a cubby hole with glass. You can't touch your visitor and have to talk via telephone.
Taylor: it was through glass and we had to talk on a phone.
