Visitor Policy

Interview with Mickey, Nate, Anne, Erik and Chris

JM: How often could you receive visitors?
Mickey: 2 days a week I think
Nate: Twice a week.
Anne: Two 30 min visits per week
Erik: Visiting is held a few days a week depending on your pod and classification. Many times this can be further restricted when lockdowns are in effect.
Chris: You were able to have 2 visitors twice per week. x x x x x

JM: Was the check-in process lengthy for those who came to see you?
Mickey: Yes.
Nate: Nobody came to see me.
Anne: Not too bad sometimes up to an hour
Erik: From what I heard it is a little time consuming but rather simple. If you have been in the facility as an inmate in the last 90 days prepare to be turned away.
Chris: The check in process is assanine. You check in initially and then you sit on cold concrete for half an hour and then walk through a metal detector and go sit in another room and wait for half an hour.

JM: What was the visiting environment like?
Mickey: There is a room with about 5 separate plate-glass windows with microphones at each window.
Nate: I don't know.
Anne: Quiet like a medical office
Erik: The visiting rooms are a quick walk up the stairs in most pods. Thick dirty glass seperates you from the visitors and steel mesh impairs the communication so you must talk loud. Definately the bright part of your inmate day, is walking up the stairs to see who hasnt forgot about you.
Chris: The visiting environment is the prisoner and guest separated by a glass partition that you can't hear very well through at all. There are about 6 spots. x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x xx x x
