Visiting is based on a point system. Each inmate housed at FCC Victorville will receive 40 points on the first day of each month. Two points per hour, or any fraction of an hour, will be deducted on weekends and holidays. One point per hour will be deducted on weekdays and/or evening visits. Unused points will not be accumulated or carried over for use in the following month. Visiting hours are from 8:30 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. on Saturdays, Sundays, Mondays, and holidays. Inmates must be properly dressed in institutional issued clothing and shoes, and have their ID cards in order to be admitted into the visiting room. Clothing must be neat and clean. U.S.P. inmates will be issued jump suits and shower shoes prior to entering the Visiting Room. Approved items allowed to be taken into the visiting room include: Comb, Wedding band, approved religious hear wear or medallion, and prescription eyeglasses (no eye glass case). Note: There will be no tennis shoes allowed in the visiting room. A maximum of twenty visitors will be authorized on an inmate’s approved visiting list. A maximum of four visitors (which includes children over the age of two years) may visit an inmate at one time. Three additional children (under the age of two years) may visit as long as they do not occupy a seat. When conditions exist such as overcrowding, the number of visitors may be further limited to allow each visitor adequate space and time to conduct their visit.
