All inmates who are expecting to have family and friends present at parole board hearings will need to submit the names to their case manager two weeks in advance of their expected parole hearing date. 

If these visitors are not already cleared and on an active visiting list, they will need to have clearance done by CDOC. In this case, the case manager will need to be given the full name, date of birth, and drivers license number so that an accurate background check can be completed by CDOC. 

If family/visitors show up who have not been cleared and approved, then those people will have to wait until CDOC can do an NCIC/CCIC clearance on them. When cleared, they can be allowed to enter the facility.
