Inmate Visitation

DC Logo  

The Department of Corrections encourages visitation between inmates and their loved ones. We recognize the importance of the continuation of family relationships during incarceration.

Visitor applications will not be distributed at the reception centers. Inmates will be given up to fifteen copies once they reach their permanent location. Inmates are responsible for sending visitor applications to those family and friends they wish to be considered for placement on their visiting list. The completed visitor applications are to be sent to the Classification Department at the institution where the inmate is assigned.

If you have any questions regarding the status of your visitor application or questions about visitation, please contact the institution where the inmate is assigned and speak with their classification officer. Complete address and telephone information for all institutions and facilities is provided in the Statewide Facility Directory.

After mailing your visitor application, please allow at least two weeks before contacting the classification officer at the facility.
