Check in at the visitation entrance with your photo ID. All visitors age 13 or older must show a photo ID.
Do not bring inside anything that’s not allowed! Check the list of what items are allowed inside. Leave everything else at home or in your locked vehicle.
You will have to clear a metal detector. Exceptions can be made for metal implants.
Once you enter the facility, please stay there until your visit is done. If you have to leave, re-entry will not be permitted.
Once you’re inside:
We have snacks and drink vending machines. You may buy items for you and your youth to eat during the visit. The machines accept cash or credit and debit cards. Youth may not handle money or use the vending machines.
Youth can purchase photo tickets at the canteen for staff to take photos of you and your youth during visitation. The photo will then go to the youth.
Do not give anything to your youth except the food or drinks you buy from us. It is a Class C felony to provide contraband items to youth in our facility.
We have some board and card games you can play with your youth, as well as a few toys and games for young children during the visit. The child’s parent or guardian must supervise and be with them at all times.
It’s OK to have brief physical contact with your youth. Please limit it to a short embrace at the beginning and end of the visit. Please don’t contact other youth or their families, other than a casual greeting.
Please act respectfully during your visit! Please follow staff instructions, use appropriate language, and keep your conversations at a normal volume.
