DOC: Visiting


Please read the following fact sheet and travel health advisory before visiting.  The Department of Correction will be initiating a verbal screening process for all visitors, volunteers and vendors to assess risk of exposure to Ebola.
  • Upon incarceration, inmates will be allowed to set up a visiting list.  Visiting forms will be sent by the inmate's counselor to those designated by the offender.  The forms should be filled out and returned to the facility where the inmate is being held.  Background checks will be conducted and it will be up to the inmate to inform the visitor that he or she has been approved.

  • Visitors under the age of 16, or their legal guardians, must provide a valid birth certificate and one additional document containing the child's name (i.e., social security card, report card, etc.). These documents will have to be produced each time the child visits. All other requirements of Administrative Directive 10.6, Inmate Visits, shall remain in effect.

  • As of April 1, 2013 visiting schedule for Cheshire Correctional Institution and MacDougall-Walker Correctional Institution has been changed.  Please go to each individual facility web page for detail information.

  • Visits are not held on state holidays.

  • Visitors are encouraged to check the visiting cancellation notices below and/or contact the facility prior to visitation to confirm the visiting schedule and to insure that the inmate they plan to visit has not lost his or her visiting privileges.
