VISITING TIMES: Regular visiting hours are 8:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., Thursday through
Monday, and national holidays. No visits will be processed after 2:30 p.m. Processing
of visitors for the main institution will temporarily halt at 9:30 a.m. on weekends and
holidays until the 10:00 a.m. count clears. Processing of visitors for the camp will not be
suspended for the count unless deemed appropriate by the Operations Lieutenant due to
an institution emergency.

Dress code

Visitor’s Dress Code: The Receptionist will be responsible for ensuring all
visitors are dressed appropriately prior to being allowed entrance into the Visiting
Room. Inappropriate/unauthorized attire is considered to be: transparent
clothing; strapless garments; any garment which exposes the stomach or any
intimate area of the body, Tank-tops; Halter Tops; dresses, skirts and shorts
which are shorter than four (4) inches from the middle of the knee; garments with
obscene logos; low-cut blouses; obvious lack of undergarments; Khaki colored
pants and shirts; hats of any kind; coats or jackets; hooded garments.
When the appropriate attire is questionable, the Operation’s Lieutenant will be
notified and make the final decision in conjunction with the IDO. Denial of the
visit due to inappropriate attire will be documented via memorandum and placed
in the inmate’s Central File.

It is the responsibility of the Visiting Room Officers to ensure that the visiting area
regulations are followed as outlined by Bureau of Prisons policy and that visits are
conducted in a quiet, orderly, and dignified manner. Direct observation of the
visits is not required at all times, but the officers will move about and constantly
observe the general visiting areas. The officers will pay strict attention to ensure
articles are not being passed between the inmate and his visitor. A visual search
of each inmate is required at the beginning and at the end of each visit. This
practice is designed to reduce the possibility of the introduction of contraband into
the institution through the visiting room. All inmates will be subjected to a metal
detector search at the end of the visit. Searches will be conducted out of the
visitors= view and in privacy.
