Newly committed inmates receive an Authorized Visitor List. This list requires that all inmates requesting family visitation must list potential visitors and have those visitors approved prior to receiving visits. The Authorized Visitor List must be completed in its entirety, listing the name, address, date of birth, gender, and relation to/of all potential visitors. The potential visitor’s name, address, DOB, and gender must directly reflect the information on the visitor’s driver’s license or state-issued photo identification card. If there are any discrepancies between the visitor's ID card and the inmates approved visitor list the visit will be turned away.

The Authorized Visitor List may have up to but not exceed 10 persons. Only those added to the list and approved by the BCCF Administration will be permitted to visit the inmate. The inmate will be informed if any requested visitors have been denied after review of the BCCF Administration.

Reasons for denial of a potential visitor include:
1. The requested visitor was incarcerated at the BCCF within the past year
2. There is an active PFA and/or Court Ordered “No Contact” between the requested visitor and the inmate
3. Information on the Authorized Visitor List has not been filled out in its entirety
The Authorized Visitor List may be changed only once every thirty (30) days via a written request to the Deputy Warden, at which time the inmate will be given a Supplementary Authorized Visitor List to add or remove visitors.
VISITATION POLICY - Each inmate at the BCCF will be advised by a correctional staff member that he/she can have two (2) visits per week with authorized visitors during scheduled visiting hours, with the visiting week starting on Monday. All minors must show proper identification (school I.D. or birth certificate) and be accompanied during the visit by a parent or legal guardian. Special visits for inmates may be approved by the Warden/designee under certain circumstances. Length of visit is one (1) hour; however, visits may be limited to thirty (30) minutes if other visitors are waiting. If the conduct of any person during a visit becomes disorderly, the visit will be terminated. Visitors who become disorderly may have their visitation rights suspended for a specific period of time and/or suspended indefinitely. Only three (3) visitors may visit an inmate at a time, provided they register together. All adult visitors MUST have a valid state-issued I.D. for admittance. Each visitor’s (including minors) full name and complete address must be registered and logged onto the visitor’s sign-in sheet.
