    Does Avon Park Correctional Institution allow conjugal visits?

    • PrisonPath May 22, 2013 at 5:44 pm #

      Hi Samantha,

      We did not find any information that conjugal visits are allowed. Please note the following information and you should call the facility for confirmation.
      The Department of Corrections encourages visitation between inmates and their loved ones. We recognize the importance of the continuation of family relationships during incarceration.

      Visitor applications will not be distributed at the reception centers. Inmates will be given up to fifteen copies once they reach their permanent location. Inmates are responsible for sending visitor applications to those family and friends they wish to be considered for placement on their visiting list. The completed visitor applications are to be sent to the Classification Department at the institution where the inmate is assigned.

      If you have any questions regarding the status of your visitor application or questions about visitation, please contact the institution where the inmate is assigned and speak with their classification officer. Complete address and telephone information for all institutions and facilities is provided in the Statewide Facility Directory.

      After mailing your visitor application, please allow at least two weeks before contacting the classification officer at the facility.

      The following information is also available on our web site:

      Hi Edith,

      Please note Rule no. 4. If you had a visitor form while you were a minor, we recommend contacting the prison to confirm your visitation status.

      4. What are the Visitation Rules?

      Can I just show up at the institution to visit an inmate?

      No. You must fill out a visiting application and wait for the inmate to notify you.
