A complete listing of rules and regulations can be found posted in the visiting waiting area in the Lobby area of the BCCF.

This form allows for all inmates to have a maximum of five (5) visitors pre-approved through our Special Operations department to visit within the facility. Any visitor not listed on this form at the time of a visit will not be allowed to visit. If you are visiting the facility for the first time you are required to fill out a Request to Visit Inmate card which can be obtained in the Visiting Lobby of the BCCF. The information you provide will be used to determine whether you are approved or denied for future visitation privileges.
