Visitor Entry, Searches, and Procedures

Adult visitors are required to present a valid picture identification prior to their admission for visiting. Acceptable identification would include:

  • Driver's License with picture
  • State identification card with picture
  • Passport
  • Military identification

Official or picture identification card is not required for visitors under age 18 unless the visitor is an emancipated minor.

All persons coming onto the grounds of DOC, their vehicles, and articles of property in their possession are subject to a search consistent with the security needs of the facility. If you refuse to submit to any entrance or visiting procedure, you will be denied visits and will be required to leave the property.

If you are bringing an infant to a visit, you are allowed to bring baby food containers, but they must be factory sealed. No open food containers or food without containers will be permitted. 

Two (2) baby bottles containing food, water, milk, or juice may be taken into the visiting area for each baby. Diaper bags may be taken into the visiting area with two (2) clean diapers, two (2) baby toys which can be easily checked for contraband, and one (1) change of clothes. The diaper bag must be left under staff supervision.

Visiting area vending machines are available for use by visitors to buy snack food items and beverages while visiting. 

You are not allowed to bring books, electronic devices, credit cards, cameras or film of any kind, briefcases, cosmetics, prescription drugs other than the amount needed for the duration of the visit and as noted on the prescription, or other items which require shakedown or search procedures that cause delays in facilitating visits.

At a minimum, electronic searches using walk through metal detectors or hand held metal detectors will be used in processing visitors. Pat searches will be conducted on as many visitors as time permits upon visitor entry. Pat searches will be conducted by staff members of the same gender.

It’s best to leave most items in your car. You must have a Photo ID, but other than that, keep it simple and just bring in your car keys and money for the vending machines.
