Approved Visitors

Visits are permitted for those on the inmate’s approved visiting list as authorized by the unit team. Visitors are placed on the approved visiting list after suitable investigation from the usual sources, i.e., Pre-sentence Investigation Report, U.S. Probation Officer and local law enforcement agencies. A request will be sent to all law enforcement agencies identified by the NCIC check or by the visitor’s own admission. Regardless of the institution’s security level, the inmate must have known the proposed visitor(s) prior to incarceration. The Warden must approve any exception to this requirement. FDC inmates receive A&O handbooks during intake screening which provides instructions for visiting procedures. FDC inmates can request a Visiting Form from the FDC unit team or any staff member. The inmate will mail the blank form to the person(s) whom they request to be approved to visit. The inmate visitors will mail the completed form back to the institution, addressed to the FDC unit team.

Once the form is received, a member of the FDC unit team will conduct background checks on the requested inmate visitors. Only immediate family members such as parents, grandparents, sister, brother, step-brother or step-sister, spouses, etc., will be approved for visiting.
