Madison Correctional Institution Visiting Information:
Florida Department of corrections partial list Visitation Rules:
Who will notify me if I am either approved or disapproved to visit?
When a decision is made regarding your application, a notice is given to the inmate. The inmate will notify you either by phone or correspondence. What are some of the things that can disqualify me?
To list a few, a criminal history, providing false or inaccurate information on a visiting application, mailing an incomplete application, etc. Possessing a criminal record will not automatically disqualify you for visitation. The nature, extent, and recency of criminal offenses are taken into consideration. However, as of January 8, 2007, offenders must be discharged from community supervision for at least one year prior to being eligible for consideration. Can I be on the approved visiting list of more than one inmate?
A visitor will not be permitted to be on more than one inmate’s approved visiting record unless they are immediate family members. If you are already on the approved list of a non-family member, you may be added to the list of a family member. However, you may not be added to the list of a non-family member if you are already on an approved visiting list, family or otherwise. Back to Top 2. What are the registration and visiting times?

Florida Department of Corrections:
Calling an inmate at the Florida department of corrections:
Florida prison inmates are not permitted to receive telephone calls.
If there is a family emergency, family members are urged to contact the institution's chaplain. The chaplain will notify the inmate and he/she may be granted a special telephone call.
Inmates may place collect calls to approved numbers. When an inmate enters the Florida prison system, he/she will have an inmate telephone account established with a Personal Identification Number (PIN) and be provided with instructions for placing collect calls to family and friends. Inmate phone lists are limited to ten (10) numbers.
Inmates are authorized to initiate collect calls to personal land line numbers and personal cell phone numbers. Collect calls to businesses are prohibited. Before an inmate is permitted to place a collect call, she/he must submit the telephone number, name, and address for verification and activation prior to being added to the inmate's approved call list.
The inmate telephone system contract has now been amended to allow calls to personal cell phone numbers subject to verification and approval of the requested number. Inmate requests may be submitted beginning May 1, 2012. Updates to an inmate's phone list to add personal cell phone numbers will be processed as noted in paragraph F below. Family and Friend members with a cell phone should be prepared to submit a copy of their cell phone contract to the inmate for validation.
Approved call lists can be changed every 6 months, or sooner under specific circumstances provided in the instructions. Every new number an inmate requests be added to the approved call list must be verified and activated before the inmate is allowed to call.
If the inmate is unable to complete a call after the number is approved, they should initiate a request through their Classification Office.
If family and friends are unable to receive calls or have other questions regarding receiving calls from an inmate, they may contact their local phone provider or 800-844-6591, Securus Correctional Billing Services for assistance, or via the web at www.securustech.net.
No time limit unless space availability is limited.
