Saturday 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
Sunday 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

Visiting Schedule


The SCP utilizes an “Odd/Even” visiting system. Specifically, inmates whose first 5 digits of their Register Number end in an “Odd” number, will be the only inmates allowed to visit on a specified Saturday and/or Sunday. (Example:Register Number 12345-000, would be allowed to visit on an “Odd” weekend). The following weekend, Saturday and/or Sunday, only inmates whose first five digits of their Register Number end in an “Even” number would be allowed to visit. (Example: Register Number 12340-000, would be allowed to visit on an “Even” weekend). Inmates can obtain a copy of the visitation schedule from a member of their Unit Team.

In addition to the above procedures, consideration will be given for allowing inmates who are related (e.g., brothers, father/sons) to visit simultaneously with one visitor. Prior approval must be obtained from the Unit Manager, Associate Warden of Custody, and the Captain prior to the visit. This will be documented in memorandum form, and a copy will be given to the Visiting Room Officers to be maintained in their area.


General Rules


Social visiting is a privilege, not a right. This privilege maybe suspended or revoked for failure to comply with the rules and regulations of conduct which may not be related to visiting.

Space is limited in the visiting room. Visits are based on a “first come first serve” system.

You are encouraged to have visits in order to maintain family and community ties.
Visiting is conducted on Friday from 5:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m., and weekends/federal holidays from 8:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m.

Visitors will not be processed after 7:30 p.m.on Friday, and after 2:00 p.m. on weekends/federal holidays.

Any exceptions to this schedule must be approved by the Warden. Visitors arriving after 7:30 p.m. on Friday and 2:00 p.m. on weekends/holidays will not be allowed to visit.

You will be allowed a maximum of four (4) adult visitors in the visiting room at a time. There will be no limit on the number of children allowed to visit; however, you will be responsible for the conduct of all your visitors. All adult visitors will be subject to have their photographs taken prior to admittance. Any adult refusing to be photographed will not be permitted to visit.

Those individuals visiting you should be aware of the following:
It is a Federal crime to bring upon the institution grounds any weapons, intoxicants, drugs, or other contraband. Title 18 United States Code 1791 provides a penalty of imprisonment for not more than ten (10) years, a fine of not more than $250,000, or both, to a person who provides or attempts to provide an inmate anything whatsoever without the knowledge and consent of the Warden. All persons entering upon these premises are subject to routine searches of their person, property (including vehicles), and packages. The Warden, upon a reasonable suspicion that a person may be introducing contraband or demonstrating actions that might otherwise endanger institution safety, security, or good order may request the person, as a prerequisite to entry, to submit to a visual search, pat search, urine surveillance test, breathalyser test, or other comparable tests.

A visitor has the option to refuse any of the searches, tests, or entrance procedures, but the visit will not be allowed. This could also result in an indefinite suspension of visiting privileges for this visitor.

Upon admission to the FCI and SCP, each inmate will be given a Visitor Information Sheet to be completed and returned to the Unit Counselor for final approval. The inmate will be required to forward the Visiting Regulations and the Visitor Information Sheet to the proposed visitors. The Visitor Information Sheet with a signed release authorization form must be returned to the Unit Counselor by the proposed visitor prior to any further action concerning the visit. Upon receipt of the completed authorization form, the Unit Counselor will initiate a National Crime Information Center (NCIC) inquiry. Only those visitors documented on the approved visiting list will be authorized to visit. Members of your immediate family (wife, children, parents, brothers, sisters) will ordinarily be placed on the approved visiting list as long as they can be verified in your PSI and upon completion of an NCIC check. However, the inmate will initiate the Visitor Information Form, and the form must be returned to the institution before the NCIC check is initiated. The Visitor Information Form will be mailed to the requested visitor, who must answer the questions and return the form, via the U.S. Postal Service, to the Correctional Counselor. It is requested that you inform your friends and relatives not to come to visit until after the final approval. Once your visiting list is approved, you may not change your list for six months. A common-law spouse will usually be treated as an immediate family member provided the common-law relationship was established in a state which recognizes such a status. For all other relations and friends, a completed Visitor Information Form/Questionnaire and Release Form will be required prior to consideration for approval. Visiting privileges usually will be extended to friends and associates having established a relationship prior to confinement unless such visits could reasonably create a threat to the security and good order of the institution.

Requests for approval for these additional visitors should be made to your Counselor at least three (3) weeks in advance of the intended visit.

An inmate’s unit team at the inmate’s request may submit a special visit request to the Unit Manager and the Associate Warden Programs for approval. Details of the visit should be written in an Inmate Request to Staff Member (Cop-Out) and submitted to your Unit Team Member.

All visits will begin and end in the visiting room. A short embrace will be allowed only upon the visitor’s arrival and departure. Inmates entering the visiting area will be dressed in institution clothing. All inmates will be required to wear their khaki uniform with a belt and shirt tucked into their trousers. Inmates may also wear their institution-issued uniform steel-toed shoes or personal tennis shoes in the visiting room which will be inspected and stamped by the Visiting Room Officer. Clothing must be neat and clean.

Visiting List


Upon admission to the FCI and SCP, each inmate will be given a Visitor Information Sheet to be completed and returned to the Unit Counselor for final approval. The inmate will be required to forward the Visiting Regulations and the Visitor Information Sheet to the proposed visitors. The Visitor Information Sheet with a signed release authorization form must be returned to the Unit Counselor by the proposed visitor prior to any further action concerning the visit. Upon receiptof the completed authorization form, the Unit Counselor will initiate a National Crime Information Center (NCIC) inquiry. NCIC inquiries which result in denial of visitation will be retained in the FOI section of the inmate’s central file with the visitor’s information sheet. Inmates will be able to submit a change/addition to their visiting list once a quarter.

After the appropriate investigation, the Unit Counselor will enter the required information into the Visiting Program. An NCIC check will be completed on all inmate visitors except for law enforcement officials or officers of the Court (Judges, Probation/Parole Officers, District Attorneys, U.S. Attorneys). The Unit Team members will be the only ones authorized to place a visitor on an inmate’s approved visiting list. A hard copy of the visiting list will be placed in the inmate’s central file and at the Front Entrance Officer’s station. The Unit Counselor will notify the inmate of those visitors who have been approved. Should a visitor be disapproved, the unit counselor will notify the affected inmate, and it will be the inmate’s responsibility to notify the visitor of their visiting status. Normally, a maximum of twenty (20) visitors wil lbe authorized on the inmate’s visiting list.

The Unit Counselor will forward the Visitor Information Sheet with a signed release authorization form at government expense for any inmate found to be indigent, according to Program Statement 2000.02, Accounting Management Manual, Visiting Regulations have been incorporated in the Admission and Orientation Handbook. The handbook is provided to all inmates entering the facility.

The Unit Counselor will periodically review the visiting list to ensure its accuracy. The list may be amended by the inmate’s submission of an Inmate Request to Staff Member form to his Unit Team indicating the desired change.


Regular Visitors


Members of the Immediate Family
These include mother, father, step-parents, foster parents, brothers, sisters, spouse, and children. These individuals are to be placed on the visiting list if identified in the inmate’s Pre-sentence Investigation and upon completion of an NCIC check. However, the inmate will initiate the visitor form, and the form must be returned to the institution before the NCIC check is initiated.

The word “spouse” includes a common-law relationship previously established in a state honoring such a relationship. An inmate who has provided the name of a common-law relation must forward verification documentation to his Unit Team for their use. This may include, but is not limited to, joint leases or contracts; joint banking accounts; or, utility bills with both parties named. The inmate’s Unit Team will review the material and place the common-law relation on the visiting list once the relationship is verified.

For inmates who do not have a legal spouse, but there is an individual with whom the inmate has been co-habitating, and there is evidence the relationship was similar to that of a spouse alone, that individual can be approved for visiting. The pre-existing relationship must be documented, which may include names on a lease, birth certificates of children, common address on a driver’s license, etc.; and be subject to the normal screening procedures prior to approval.

Visitors With a Criminal Record
Any visitor with a criminal record requires the Warden’s approval. This approval process can take several weeks, and your Correctional Counselor will advise you if the visitor has been approved. Also, potential visitors who are currently under supervision by any probation department or parole office must first get permission from that department.

An official letter must be mailed to our facility directly from that department. Inmates requesting to visit another inmate who is an immediate family member may do so with the approval of the Associate Warden of Programs. Your request may be denied with any negative documented behavior and/or based on any safety and security concerns of the institution.

Other Visitors
A completed Information Questionnaire and Release Form will be required prior to consideration for approval. Visiting privileges usually will be extended to friends and associates having established a relationship prior to confinement unless such visits could reasonably create a threat to the security and good order of the institution. Any exception to the prior relationship requirement will be approved in writing by the Warden.

Business Visitors
The Case Manager will be responsible for verifying any potential visitor as a former business associate of the inmate, meeting the criteria outlined in BOP policy. The Unit Manager will then approve/disapprove the visit and enter appropriate documentation in the inmate’s central file.

Consular Visitors
When it has been determined that an inmate is a citizen of a foreign country, the Warden must permit the consular representative of that country to visit on matters of legitimate business.

The Warden may not withhold this privilege even though the inmateis in disciplinary status. The requirement for existence of an established relationship prior to confinement does not apply to consular visitors.

Visits from representatives of Community Groups
The Warden may approve as regular visitors, forone or more inmates, representatives from community groups such as civic and religious organizations, or other persons whose interests and qualifications for this kind of service are confirmed by staff.


Special Visits


Inmates must submit a special visit request to their Unit Team at least one day in advance of the visiting date. Visits from persons not on the approved list must be approved by the Unit Manager. Upon approval, the Unit Manager will notify, in writing, the Operations Lieutenant, Receptionist, and the Visiting RoomOfficer of the special visit. The Unit Team will also enter the information into the Visiting Program. This information must be entered prior to allowing the visitors entrance into the institution. If this information is not entered,then Unit Staff will be contacted concerning the visit and will take the appropriate action to either allow the visitor to enter or deny the visit.

IF AN ATTORNEY REPORTS TO THE INSTITUTION FOR AN ATTORNEY/CLIENT VISIT DURING NORMAL VISITING HOURS, THE ATTORNEY MUST BE ON THE INMATE’S APPROVED VISITING LIST, UNLESS A MEMORANDUM HAS BEEN PROVIDED BY THE INMATE’S UNIT TEAM. THIS MEMORANDUM IS TO BE APPROVED BY THE CAPTAIN. IF AN ATTORNEY WISHES TO VISIT AN INMATE DURING NON-VISITING HOURS, THE UNIT TEAM MUST APPROVE AND SUPERVISE THE VISIT.

Clergy Visits
Clergy visits to inmates are approved through the Religious Services Department. Clergy visits will be verified by the Chaplain, and the visits will be approved for certain days during regular hours in the Visiting Room. A Chaplain will issue an authorization memo for each visit. A copy of this memorandum will be provided to the Lieutenants’ Office, Front Entrance, and the Visiting Room Officer. When the Clergy arrives, he/she will be checked in as expeditiously as possible, utilizing the same procedures used for attorneys. The Receptionist will be responsible for entering the visitor’s information into the Visiting Program.

Professional Visits
Representatives of Law Enforcement Agencies, U.S. Parole Offices, Attorneys, Paralegals, Legal Assistants, and Mental Health Professionals performing court-ordered examinations will receive priority when processing. Representatives are to call and schedule their visits by contacting the inmate’s Unit Team. The Unit Team will notify the S.I.S. office by memorandum concerning all pending law enforcement visits. Every effort should be made to schedule the visit during normal visiting hours. Requests should be called in at least twenty-four (24) hours prior to the proposed visit. If approved, Unit Staff will prepare a memorandum authorizing the visit and distribute copies to the Lieutenants’ Office, Front Entrance, and Visiting Room. If the visit is requested during non-visiting hours, the Unit Team will attempt to accommodate the request insofar as time, security, and manpower constraints permit. Ordinarily, a 24-hour advance notice is required. Additionally, the visitation privilege will not supercede institutional security and orderly functioning by unnecessarily interfering with other institutional activities. The Receptionist will be responsible for entering the visitor’s information into the Visiting Program.
