VISITING

Welcome, visitors! The department encourages visiting by family and friends. You can make a positive and powerful difference dur

-

ing your loved oneʼs incarceration. It is important to remember, however, that visiting is a privilege and will be regulated. It is also

important that you do not visit until you are notified by the offender that you have been officially approved. You may wish to contact

the visiting room staff or the offenderʼs caseworker prior to visiting to ensure visits are still available for that offender.

What are the visiting schedules and who may visit?

Regularly scheduled visiting is available at all facilities, Friday through Sunday, with the exception of the diagnostic and treatment cen

ters. Visiting hours are posted on the Departmentʼs website at www.doc.mo.gov. Generally visits are from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. and

2:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, but may vary slightly from facility to facility. Because the diagnostic and

treatment centers have structured programming and activities, visits are limited to specific days

and times. We ask that all visitors refrain

from arriving on institutional grounds before visiting hours begin. The number and length of visits that are authorized vary by facility

because of different capacities to host visiting. Weekends may be designated for immediate family members only (spouse, children,

parents, brothers or sisters, grandparents and step relations) or one individual of choice (a significant/designated other, such as a close

friend), and visitors may only visit during one visiting period each day. You should also be aware that unforeseen security problems may

interfere with visiting, causing delayed, shortened, or suspended visits.

This is unusual, but does occur on occasion.

How are visitors assigned to a visiting list?

Every offender that is not in the diagnostic process or a treatment program is allowed to have a maximum of twenty visitors on their

approved visiting list. Because this number is limited, the offender makes the selection and may make changes twice each year during

designated periods. In order to be considered for offender visitation, the offender must mail an application to that prospective visitor.

It is important that the visiting application is answered thoroughly and honestly as failure to do so may result in denial of visiting privi

leges. A complete criminal history check is conducted on all prospective visitors. Once completed, the form should be returned to the

appropriate department as indicated on the form; do not send it to the offender. Once a background check is completed and no problems

are identified, the visitor may be added to the visiting list. The offender receives notification advising them of the status and they are

responsible for notifying the visitor of the decision. Visitors may only be on one offenderʼs visiting list unless they are verified to be an

immediate family member of more than one offender. Ex-offenders may or may not be approved to visit depending upon their criminal

history, release status and mandatory approval from their supervising probation and parole officer. Additional information, such as a

marriage license may be required before final approval is granted

Duration:

No time limit unless space availability is limited.
