Visiting Hours and Rules

Visitation at Texarkana Regional Correction Center is on Saturdays and Sundays from noon to 4:00 p.m. However, there is a rotating visit schedule, so the inmates are not allowed to have visits every time the visiting room is open.

You must talk with your person who is incarcerated at this facility to find out their specific visit day and time.

An inmate may have up to four visitors during any one visit, including children. However, the spouse of an inmate and all children, regardless of the number, may visit at one time.

How To Get On The Approved Visit List

If you want to visit an inmate at Texarkana Regional, the first thing you need to do is talk to your incarcerated loved one via phone or mail and ask them to send you a visitation application.

After you receive the application, you need to fill it out completely and mail it to the Texarkana Regional Correction Center Visitation Clerk at the address provided on the form. Do not mail the completed form directly to the inmate.

Once your application is submitted, it is processed, reviewed, and either approved or denied by the Warden. The screening process takes at least a week, and they do run a criminal history check on all prospective visitors.

General Visit Rules

The most important thing to remember when visiting someone at Texarkana Regional Correction Center is to bring photo identification. If you are 12 years or older, photo ID is a must. If you don’t bring identification, you will be denied the visit.

The only things you can bring into the visiting room are:

  • One clear plastic bag containing a small amount of cash for purchasing refreshments
  • Prescription medication in the visitor’s name and in original pharmacy container
  • Government-issued photo identification
  • Baby bottles, baby diapers, and diaper wipes
  • Car keys
  • Jewelry (being worn)

You can’t bring cameras, pagers, cellular phones, pocket knives, or food into the facility.

Visitor Dress Code:

There is a conservative dress code for prison visitation. Provocative clothing is strictly prohibited. You absolutely can’t wear halter-tops, tank tops, sleeveless tops, hats, shorts, mini-skirts/dresses, see-through clothing, leggings, jeggings, or camouflage attire.

If you are wearing any item on this list, the guards will not let you into the visiting room. The rules are the same for both adults and children, with the exception of shorts. Kids are allowed to wear shorts of an appropriate length.

If you do not submit to a search or refuse to go through the metal detector, you will not be allowed to visit. Texarkana Regional Correction Center randomly drug tests visitors with an Ion Scanner, and a positive scan can lead to a search of you and your vehicle.

Any visitor unable to successfully clear all entrance procedures will be denied entry and may have their visitation privileges suspended.

All inmates are allowed to correspond with family, friends, etc… However, the increasing use of illegal drugs has forced the ADOC to limit incoming paper correspondence.

Instead of receiving your actual letter, the inmate will receive a copy made by staff. Inmates receive two sheets of copy paper (images are on front and back), which will include a copy of the envelope and the correspondence.

Because your incarcerated loved one will only receive a copy, be sure to use dark ink only (black or blue ink).

You can only mail short (1-3 pages) letters to an inmate at Texarkana Regional. All books, magazines, newspapers and catalogs must be mailed directly from the publisher or vendor.

You can’t mail food or care packages to an inmate. However, Arkansas DOC is part of the Inmate Package Program where you can buy a food package for your friend or loved one. During the program period, an inmate can receive up to $100 of goods through participating vendors.
