Who Can Visit
Persons under the age of 18 shall not be allowed to visit inmates unless they are accompanied by a parent, legal guardian, physical custodian or adult immediate family member (husband, wife, uncle, aunt, grandparent, sister or brother).

Visitors ages 15 or 17 may visit their parents without being accompanied by an immediate family member as defined above.
Children (anyone under age 14) in the lobby must be in the company of an adult at all times. If children are unruly so as to cause disruption or a security problem, an oral warning shall be issued to the accompanying adult and a written warning to the inmate being visited. Repeated disruptions will lead to termination of visiting and/or denied future visits.
Visitors must have a valid, non-expired, state identification card when visiting inmates. Proper identification includes an official picture identification card with the person's name and date of birth on it. Additionally, visitors are required to register at the time of the visit.
