Covid Visitation Information

To limit the opportunity of introducing the COVID-19 virus to a prison facility, visitations at this facility have been suspended until further notice. This includes Volunteer Staff.

Attorney Visits:

Requests for general in-person legal visits between attorneys and offenders must be made to the facility where the offender is housed. Attorney/offender visit requests will only be scheduled when safe to do so on a facility-by-facility basis and are subject to being postponed or rescheduled.

All calls are 'collect' unless the offender utilizes prepaid minutes.
