Visitor Policy

Interview with Roxie and Jaime

JM: How often could you receive visitors?
Roxie: I believe they could come daily, Monday through Sunday, for a one-hour visit through the glass.
Jaime: After 3 days you could have visitors. Visits were twice a week from people on your approved visiting list.

JM: Was the check-in process lengthy for those who came to see you?
Roxie: No, my family did not come that often to the jail. It was just too hard on them. But when they did, I never heard them complain about a wait.
Jaime: Other than waiting in line to check in, the check in process wasnt very long, but everyone had to checked in by a certain time no matter what time they actually got to visit. They only let a certain number of people visit at once so a lot of people had to wait a long time to visit.

JM: What was the visiting environment like?
Roxie: One small narrow room, painted a hideous color. None too clean, but very sterile and cold looking. Approximately 6-8 stools for visiting through the glass. Just like you see on TV, they had the thick glass, and telephones for communicating. The guards would stand to the side or behind you.
Jaime: Rooms divided into 2 narrow parts, visitors on one side, inmates on the other,glass and telephones in between. (you had to talk to each other on phone in order to hear each other)5 inmates per visiting room, camaras in each room. Visits were supposed to be half hour but by the time they got everyone in we were lucky to get 20 minutes.
