Diagnostic & Evaluation Center Visiting Information:
The Nebraska Department of Correctional Services has a liberal policy for visitation. Generally any family member or friend may visit as long as they do not have a recent criminal conviction, do not have criminal charges pending, are not on the visiting list of another inmate, are not a former employee, or pose any threat to the safety or security of the facility. Each visitation request is individually reviewed. Individuals wishing to visit an inmate at DEC must first obtain a "Visitor Request Form" (VRF) from the inmate they are requesting to visit. All persons wishing to visit must have their own VRF completed and approved. Minors up to age 19 must also have notarized, written permission from their parent or guardian to visit and must be accompanied by an approved adult. The completed VRF must be returned to DEC at the address shown on the form. Do NOT send the form to the inmate. It takes 2 - 3 weeks for the document to be processed. Failure to answer all questions or providing false information will likely result in the denial of visitation privileges. The inmate will notify you if you are approved to visit.
