David Wade Correctional Center Visiting Information:
DWCC recognizes the importance of visitation in the maintenance of an offender’s family ties. Visitation with family members is a vital aspect in the rehabilitation of an offender and is encouraged.
Regular visiting days are Saturday and Sunday only. Visiting hours are between 8:00 am and 4:00 pm. However, incoming visitors will not be admitted between 11:00 am and 11:30 am. Also, no visits will be started after 3:00pm. Only six (6) visitors will be allowed in the visiting room to visit an offender at any given time. There will be no visiting on a weekend in which the Sunday is the fifth Sunday of a month.
Each offender must request that visitors be approved for his visiting list. The Visitation Department will advise the offender of approval or denial of the visitor. The offender is responsible for notification to his visitor of the final outcome. An approved visitor may visit two times each month. Visitors must be on the “approved visiting list” or have approval for a Special Visit in advance by the Warden or his designee. Special Visits must be requested by the offender.
Children who are fourteen and under do not need to be on the visiting list if they are accompanied by a parent or guardian. Persons in this category may be requested to provide a birth certificate as verification. Visitors who are seventeen and over must have picture identification in order to visit an offender. Visitors can depost cash money in the account of the offender, but the money must be left at the visitation desk with security personnel who are processing visitors. Visitation personnel will issue receipts. Offenders cannot possess cash. Visitors are allowed to bring only the following items into the Visiting Room.
One car key or keyless device
