Visit procedures

Bring a valid photo ID with you when visiting an inmate at Martin Correctional Institution.  The registration process begins with the officers confirming that you are an approved visitor, and then they will ask you some questions. Before you are allowed to visit with an inmate, you will also go through a number of searches.

The officers will begin with a property search, and then you will go through a metal detector and a Magneto Static Detector (which detects cell phones). Then there is a pat search, followed by a barrier search which is conducted by a canine handler. 

Once you have cleared all of these steps, you will be allowed to visit with your inmate.

What you can bring to a visit

Each visitor is allowed to bring the following items into the visiting room:

  • A maximum of $50.00 ($1, $5, $10, and $20 denominations only or silver change) for the vending machines, and you can carry the money in a small wallet or pouch.
  • One car key. No key chains or keyless entry devices.

If you need to bring medication to your visit, bring only the necessary dosage. All meds must be in the original prescribed container and clearly marked. 

For medical conditions that require injections, like diabetes, the officers at Martin will allow you to leave the visiting room because needles and syringes are not allowed. Before you can go back to your visit, the officers will conduct another pat search.
