Deer Ridge Correctional Institution is not responsible for items lost, stolen or left behind while you are at the institution. It is recommended that visitors limit the amount of personal property they bring into the institution, such as jewelry, watches, clothing, coats, etc. Cell phones and other electronic devices are prohibited in the institution. All non-essential items should be left in your vehicle. Smoking is prohibited on institution property. Leaving children/pets in your vehicle while you visit is prohibited
Due to the location of DRCI and our commitment to enhancing inmate/family communication, visitors will be allowed to visit both visiting sessions per day if they so choose. The inmate must have sufficient visiting points and the visit may be terminated if, at security staff's discretion, the visiting room is overcrowded and/or visitors who did not visit during the earlier session are not getting an opportunity to visit.
** The DRCI Minimum facility does not have the appropriate basic visiting space, therefore, DRCI will no longer accommodate Basic Visits in the visiting Room.**

Deer Ridge Visiting Room Homework Program
Saturdays 1-4 p.m. (Beginning Saturday, September 13)
Children visiting fathers at Deer Ridge are encouraged to bring homework to family visits. Homework (Books, papers, and pocket folders with no metal) will be allowed in for Visiting on Saturdays from 1-4 p.m. starting Saturday, September 13th.
The goals of this Homework Program are as follows:
We hope this will:
- encourage fathers to become academically involved with children.
- accommodate children when they have homework to accomplish over the weekend while still wanting to visit their fathers.
- allow children to bring graded assignments to share with their fathers.
Files of math problems, math games, and math puzzles will also be kept on hand for families to use. An education tutor will be assigned to the visiting room to help with questions from inmate fathers during those specific hours. Tutors will help gather information and help the fathers but will not be tutoring children. Education staff will assist by keeping visiting room homework supplies in a file cabinet on site. Pens and pencils will be kept on site for fathers and children to use. Children can only bring in homework on Saturdays from 1-4 p.m.
Security staff will be checking children’s homework when it comes through visiting. Children will only be allowed to bring in:
- Pocket folders with no metal
When children leave the visiting room, they must leave with homework again. Dads may help them with homework but they cannot send out letters, artwork, or cards. Only homework may leave the visiting room.
