Green Rock Correctional Center Visiting Information:
All institutions allow visiting on Saturday, Sunday and State holidays. To reduce crowding in the visiting room, many institutions alternate days inmates may visit based on the alphabet or inmate I.D. number. Be sure to check with the institution or with the offender you plan to visit to determine which day he/she may visit.
Inmates are permitted a minimum of one hour per visiting day with visitors, although the length of visits may be determined by activity in the visiting area such as the number of visitors on a given day; available space; or institutional staff resources.
Most institutions use an on-site visitor registration process. All visitors, including minors, are required to complete the Visitor Application and Background Investigation Authorization Form before visiting (please see the forms page). Due to a change in the visitor tracking system, after May 16, 2011, all visitors, including those who previously provided an application, will be required to submit a new application.
Children under the age of 18 may visit inmates only with the permission of their parent or guardian, or pursuant to a valid court order.
All such children must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian who is on the inmate's approved visiting list.
Emancipated minors, including spouses, will be approved for visitation in the same manner as adult visitors. Please contact a specific facility to obtain further information on their visiting program.
Visitation procedures at individual institutions may vary and can be changed at any time without prior notice. Please contact the correctional center or unit before planning a visit.

Inmates Accounts at green Rock Correctional Center:
Starting May 1, 2013, J-Pay will be the only way to electronically send funds to incarcerated family members and friends. Access Corrections and Western Union will no longer be processing money transfers for the VADOC as of that date. The new arrangement with J-Pay will provide senders with lower transaction fees and a money order lockbox services program.
To deposit money into an offender’s Trust account, users can send electronic funds online at www.jpay.com or over the phone at 1-800-574-5729 by using a credit or debit card. They can also send an offender money using cash by visiting a MoneyGram location, including any Walmart or CVS.
In addition, on June 1, 2013, J-Pay will begin to accept money orders. Family members and friends will be able to send their money order directly to J-Pay at no cost. The money order will be processed and submitted to the VADOC, and the funds will be posted to the offender’s Trust account without deducting a service fee. Money orders sent to J-Pay must include a deposit slip, which will be provided to the sender.
There will be a transition period during which the VADOC will continue to accept money orders at the facilities. However, money orders sent to VADOC facilities will eventually be rejected and returned to the sender. This is expected to begin on September 1, 2013, but it is preferred that senders use the lockbox services provided by J-Pay well before that date.
For more information regarding the changes, contact J-Pay directly at 1-800-574-5729. For any further assistance, call 1-804-887-7838 to reach the VADOC Financial Systems Unit. Additional information can be found on the VADOC JPay page.
