Religious Visits: Pastoral visits are arranged through religious services. Inmates need to submit a written request for their pastor, spiritual advisor, or faith representative of the inmate’s faith to visit. An inmate may only have one minister of record at a time. The inmate needs to provide at least the name of clergy person and a phone number to the chaplains. The chaplains will make all security checks. After the security checks are completed the minister is entered into the inmate visiting program (under “Clergy”). Pastoral visits may not be counted as social visits, and pastoral visits will take place in the visiting room during regular visiting hours.
Consulate Visits: Inmates that are citizens of foreign countries may be visited by their respective Consulate office. Consulate visiting guidelines are the same as legal visit guidelines.
