    Hello my cousin has been there for 18 years now, I really want to go see him but I heard that I have to fill out this application in order for me to go in and visit him. If that is true where can I get the form to fill it out? Or do I just go to the prison/.

      Hi Ms. Beverly,

      I would recommend contacting the prison directly to see if there is a problem because of your parole status.

      Hi Viviann,

      The prison web site has several pages in their rule book about visitation. Please note the following and also click the link for the prison’s web site on the top of this prison page for more information.

      Visiting A Friend or Loved One In Prison 2
      If you are approved to visit, the prisoner is notified and he/she must notify you. Once approved, you are listed in the computer as being an approved visitor for the prisoner; you do not need to bring any proof of approval with you to the prison.
      If you are disapproved, you will receive a letter from the prison setting forth the reason for disapproval; the prisoner will also receive notice of the disapproval but will not be given the reason. If you are denied approval to visit, you may reapply, you may appeal the denial and/or the prisoner may appeal the denial. If the reason for the denial is based on inaccurate or incomplete information on the Visitor Questionnaire, you may resubmit an accurate and complete questionnaire. Sometimes the reason for denial is that the prison requires additional information (for example, evidence that the applicant is no longer on probation); in those cases, you should resubmit the questionnaire and provide the additional information. If you do not agree with the reason given for the disapproval, you may appeal by writing to the Warden at the prison. He/she is required to respond to your appeal within 15 working days of receiving the appeal. If dissatisfied with the institution’s response or action, you may refer your appeal, with a copy of the institution’s decision, to the Director of the Division of Adult Institutions or his/her designee at: California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation, Division of Adult Institutions, P. O. Box 942883, Sacramento, California, 94283-0001, Attention: Director, Room 351-N. A written response to appeals addressed to the Director shall be provided within 20 working days from the date of receipt. The prisoner may independently appeal the denial of approval by utilizing the normal prisoner appeal process within the prison.
      Sometimes emergency or hardship visits are allowed before a person has been approved to visit. Such visits are at the discretion of prison staff (usually the Visiting Sergeant or Lieutenant) and are usually to accommodate an unexpected visitor traveling from a distance in excess of 250 miles. You should not rely on receiving approval to visit without going through the normal visiting application process. Whenever possible, you should plan ahead for visits and have each adult who might want to visit submit applications before they embark on a trip that will include a visit

    Lockdowns or Modified Program:
    Prisons are often placed on “lockdowns” or
    “modified programs” in response to threats to the safety of staff and prisoners or the
    security of the institution. These “modified programs” may be restricted to specific
    groups of prisoners, areas of the institution, or in the case of a lockdown, are applied
    to all prisoners in all area of the institution. The 800 Visitors’ Information number,
    noted in the preceding, will provide information regarding lockdowns and modified
    programs and which prisoners are restricted from visiting as a result. Since both
    lockdowns and medical quarantines can occur with very limited notice, it is wise to
    check the Visitors’ Information number just before leaving for a vis

    Hello, I recently lost my identification card. And the DMV doesn’t offer temporary Id’s. I was wondering if I were to take my birth certificate and school id, if that would suffice to get through processing?
