REGULAR VISIT: An inmate desiring to have regular visitors must submit a list of proposed visitors to his unit team who will then compile an approved visitors list for each inmate. Ordinarily, an inmate's visiting list should not list more than 10 friends and associates. The Warden may make an exception to this provision when warranted. An appropriate NCIC transaction can be completed if staff have reason to believe that further background investigation is needed. The visiting privilege will ordinarily be extended to friends and associates having an established relationship with the inmate prior to confinement. The existence of a criminal conviction alone does not preclude visits. Staff shall give consideration to the nature, extent and recentness of convictions, as weighed against the security considerations of the institution. Specific approval of the Warden may be required before such visits take place. The Warden may approve exceptions to this requirement under special circumstances and on a case by case basis. The inmate will be notified in writing of the reason(s) for the denial of a requested visitor via Attachment E. In addition to immediate family members, visiting privileges may ordinarily be extended to 10 additional adults (16 years and older) having an established relationship prior to confinement. Any exceptions to the established prior relationship requirement must be approved by the Warden. This will be a written justification request from the inmate through the inmate's unit team. A determination will be made on a case-by-case basis. A visitor may be placed on only one inmate's visiting list. The only exception considered will be in the case of family members (brothers, father/son, etc.) incarcerated at Yankton. Approval by the Associate Warden will be considered upon individual cases with supporting documentation. The A & O Handbook and initial visiting list are distributed during the intake screening interview. Requests for additions and/or deletions of visitors may then be submitted every six months. Visiting regulations (Attachment A) and Transportation Information (Attachment B) will be given to the inmate in their Admission and Orientation programs.

ATTORNEY VISITS: Attorneys will be required to provide proper identification prior to the visit. Proper identification includes, but is not limited to, a driver's license and attorney's bar card. Attorneys will be required to indicate they are licensed attorneys. Normally, a State Bar Association Card will be sufficient. The "Notification to Visitor" and "Attorney-Client Agreement" (Attachment F) forms will be completed prior to visiting the inmate. Attorney/inmate visits will be afforded auditory privacy. Visits will be arranged so as to provide adequate unobstructed visual supervision and should have a degree of separation from other inmates and/or visitors. An inmate may not exchange or leave the visiting area with legal documents without prior approval by unit staff. If they are unable to visit during scheduled visiting times, attorneys are required to notify the institution to make arrangements with unit staff prior to visiting.
No time limit unless space availability is limited.
