Milwaukee Secure Detention Facility Visiting Information:

Anyone wishing to visit an inmate in a Wisconsin Correctional Institution must be listed on the inmate’s visitors list. It is the inmate’s responsibility to request permission for additions to their visitors list.

All prospective visitors, including children, must complete (or have someone complete for them) the Visitor Questionnaire (DOC-21AA), which is an application for approval to visit. It is the inmate’s responsibility to obtain and mail the Visitor’s Questionnaire to a prospective visitor. The proposed visitor will then need to return the form to the institution for approval to be added to the inmate’s visitor list. Inmates will be notified when a visitor has been added to their visiting list. Visitors may be denied approval for visitation on a number of grounds, specified in administrative code. If denied, a visitor must wait 6 months to re-apply for approval.

Any child or minor, that is, any person under the age of 18, must have the written consent of the legal, non-incarcerated parent or guardian prior to visiting. This consent is contained on the Visitor Questionnaire. Also, unless a minor visitor is the legal spouse of the inmate, any visitor not yet l8 shall be accompanied by an adult who is on the approved Visitors List.

Assessment and Evaluation (A&E) Unit (Intake)
The intake units at Dodge Correctional Institution (DCI), Milwaukee Secure Detention Facility (MSDF) and Taycheedah Correctional Institution (TCI) are known as or have A&E (Assessment and Evaluation). Several visiting rules are different for inmates who are still in A&E status. Inmates in an A&E status are permitted up to four (4) adult, close family member visitors. Close family member for this purpose is an inmate’s natural, adoptive, step, foster parents, spouse, children, grandparents, grandchildren or siblings. If the spouse’s last name is different than the inmate’s, the spouse must send a copy of the marriage license to verify the relationship.

Inmates in A&E status may be permitted to have their own children visit. Inmate’s children under the age of 18 shall not be counted against the four visitor limit. However, inmates in an A&E status, with sexually related offenses, will not be permitted to have visitors under the age of 18.


No time limit unless space availability is limited.

    Why do you charge $40 for an inmate personal items to be shipped when you send them to TCI? My daughter is at MSDF & I’m taken care of her kids I have been unemployed for the last 5.5 years just found out saturday that she is been shipped to TCI on thursday & needs money which we don’t have otherwise you throw out her stuff that is wrong. We should be able to pick up not throw out not everyone has money.
