Check in at the main entrance with your photo ID. All visitors must show a photo ID. You will temporarily turn in your vehicle keys. All visitors must sign in and out each visit.
You will have to clear a metal detector. If you are not able to clear these, we will not let you visit. Exceptions can be made for metal implants.
We have lockers where you may store certain items.
If our staff suspect that you are under the influence of drugs or alcohol, they will not let you inside the facility.
Once you are inside the security fence, please stay there until your visit is done.
Once you’re inside:
Do not give anything to your youth except food or drinks. We have a canteen for buying drinks or food for you or your youth to eat during the visit. We only accept cash.
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.
We have games available for you to play with your youth during the visit.
You cannot take photos during the visit. If you would like a photo taken with your youth, you may purchase this service through our canteen.
The canteen also sells hot food during visitation. The canteen closes a half hour before the end of visitation. Hours may vary, depending on staffing. All sales are cash only.
Please act respectfully during your visit! Please follow staff instructions, use appropriate language, and keep your conversations at a normal volume. We work hard to create a positive, family-friendly environment for all youth and visitors.
Staff may deny you entry into Tillamook Youth Correctional Facility or make you leave for reasons related to facility safety or security. If you do not behave appropriately or you try to bring something in that is not allowed, we will ask you to leave and may not allow you to visit again.
