Visits are regularly scheduled from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. on
Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Federal holidays. Special
Housing Unit inmates will visit on Thursday from 8:30 a.m.
to 3:00 p.m. Each inmate at the FCI will receive twelve
(12) visiting points per month.
Proper Dress for Visitors
Inmates are responsible for informing prospective visitors that the way they dress should be within the bounds of good taste and should not possibly offend others who may be present in the Visiting Room. Visitors wearing transparent clothing will not be admitted into the institution. Halter tops, sleeveless tops/dresses, shorts, (not to include capri or three quarter length pants), miniskirt, culottes and spandex will not be allowed. Dresses will be no higher than the knee top. Blouses or other apparel of a suggestive nature (i.e., low-cut V-Neck, tank tops, or any garment that reveals the mid-section) will not be allowed. Due to inmates wearing similar clothing, jogging and/or sweat suits will not be permitted to enter the institution. Sweat shirts/pants, jogging outfits (pants or jackets) are not allowed to be worn in conjunction with regular civilian style clothing if similar to inmate clothing. Any other clothing that, at the direction of the shift Lieutenant or Institutional Duty Officer (IDO), resembles the style or color of inmate clothing (i.e., Khaki colored clothing, or the green worn by camp inmates), will not be allowed to be worn into the institution. At the discretion of the shift Lieutenant or Institutional Duty Officer, children under the age of twelve (12) will be allowed to wear shorts. No bare feet will be permitted (excluding babies). No open toed (i.e. flip-flop)shoes are authorized in the visiting room.
