Visiting Hours and Rules

Visiting hours at the Mississippi County Work Release Center are generally on Saturdays and Sundays from noon to 4:00 p.m. However, there is a rotating visitation schedule, so be sure to talk with the inmate via phone or mail first so you know the exact time they are allowed to receive visits.

There is a maximum of four visitors per inmate during a visit, including children. However, an inmate’s spouse and all children, regardless of the number, may visit at one time.

How To Get On The Approved Visit List

  • Ask your incarcerated friend or loved one to mail you a visit application. 
  • Each visitor must complete a visitation application and return it to the address listed on the form to the attention of the Visitation Clerk. Do not mail it back to the inmate.
  • Applications are then processed, reviewed and either approved or denied by the Warden. The screening process can take seven (7) days or longer. A criminal history check is done on all prospective visitors.
  • The prison will not contact you about their decision. It is the inmate’s responsibility to let you know if you have been approved or denied.
  • Minor children, under age 18, may not be allowed to visit unless accompanied by an approved adult visitor, or upon proof of emancipation.
  • Visitors age 12 and older are required to provide state-issued photo identification for entry into a correctional facility.

You can only send short letters to an inmate in the ADOC. If you want to send books, magazines, newspapers, or catalogs, they must be mailed directly from the publisher or vendor.

In an effort to reduce the introduction of contraband, inmates only receive two sheets of 8½ x 11 inches of copy paper, which will include a copy of the envelope and three pieces of the correspondence on the four-sides of the two sheets of copy paper.

Only black and white copies will be made, and no cards, larger size paper, or anything else will be manipulated to fit on the copy paper. Additionally, any general correspondence that exceeds these limits will be treated as contraband; the inmate will have thirty (30) days to pay for return postage or it will be destroyed.

Please write all letters in dark ink only (black or blue ink), do not use pencils or yellow markers because it will reduce image quality.

You can’t mail food or care packages to an inmate. However, Arkansas is part of the Inmate Package Program where you can buy up to $100 of goods through participating vendors at different times throughout the year. If you are interested in participating in the program, please click one of the links below.

You can also send email and photos through www.accesscorrections.com, but you will need to open an account with them first before sending any correspondence.

All snail mail and email is subject to review by the facility staff prior to delivery, so make sure your content is appropriate.
