Otisville Correctional Facility Visiting Information:

Visitation by family and friends is encouraged and can be a positive influence during an inmate’s time in prison, as well as after the inmate’s release. Research has shown that an inmate who receives regular visitation adjusts much better once he or she is released from prison.

Directions and Mileage

Correctional facilities are sometimes hard to find and may take longer to reach than you originally anticipated. Please refer to the addresses of state correctional facilities. The DOCS website gives directions to correctional facilities from Albany, New York. Directions may also be obtained through Map Quest on the internet or by calling the correctional facility.

Who can visit

With little exception, anyone can visit an inmate, as long as it is during visiting hours, the visitor has proper identification, and the inmate agrees to the visit. Visitors are required to sign a statement indicating that they have been advised of and agree to abide by the rules and regulations regarding visiting.

Make sure you know how many visitors may visit at one time. Each facility is different. Sometimes special arrangements for extra visitors can be made through the Superintendent’s Office, with several weeks or a month’s notice. You can call the facility to find out about special arrangements.

Special Permission Visitors

The following individuals can only visit with special permission:

A person who is currently under Parole or Probation supervision.
A Department employee.
A current, active volunteer for the Department.
A current contract employee.
A person with pending or past criminal proceedings may be denied pending approval by the Superintendent.
If any of these conditions applies to you, permission should be sought by writing to the Superintendent well in advance. You must do this and receive approval before you can visit. The Superintendent may deny visiting privileges to visitors with criminal histories if they feel that the visitor’s presence could create a threat to the security and good order of the facility. Criteria to be considered shall include, but not be limited to, the purpose of the proposed visit, the former institutional adjustment of the ex-inmate, the nature of the pending criminal proceeding, and the time frame between release and the proposed visit. NOTE: In addition to the Superintendent’s approval, Probationers and Parolees also need written approval from their Probation or Parole Officer.

Visiting Days and Times



Except in cases of emergency and instances of termination, suspension, or revocation of the visitor’s privileges, the number, length and frequency of visits by each visitor will be limited only as necessary to accommodate all visitors who arrive during the scheduled visiting time.

Visiting days and times are different for each facility. They are influenced by the security level and population concerns of the facility. At many facilities, you may only visit on certain days of the week, for example, by last name (A-L) (M-Z) or by the inmate’s DIN. As a general rule, maximum security facilities have visiting on a daily basis. Medium and minimum security facilities have visiting on weekends and holidays. Work Release facilities have visiting for inmates in restriction units only. Shock Incarceration inmates have visiting every other weekend. PLEASE NOTE: Inmates designated as SHU status (Special Housing Unit) are limited to one visit per week, excluding legal visits that have been approved. Contact the facility for the specific visiting schedule.

Visiting hours vary by facility, but generally they begin at 7:30 am and end at 3:00 pm. Some may even include evening hours. Many visiting rooms become very crowded and often visitors are told they must leave because there are others waiting to get in. It is good to learn, in advance, as much as possible about the facility you are going to visit.

Contact the facility prior to your initial visit to determine the visiting policy.

Most correctional facilities offer substance abuse treatment services. These services focus on the treatment of alcoholism and addiction to drugs. These treatment services are recommended for offenders with a history of drug and/or alcohol abuse, or present with significant risk factors for such abuse. It is important to understand that an offender’s refusal to participate in a recommended program may affect early release. Offenders with a history of addiction and/or alcoholism with special needs such as mental health issues, sensorial disabilities, developmental disabilities, and long-term medical issues are provided specialized substance abuse treatment programs.

    How do you stop an inmate from writing to you?

      Hi Ribbon,

      First let the inmate know that you do not want any further letters from him. If this does not work,you can let him know that you will file a complaint with the prison authorities. Then it is your decision to go ahead with the complaint.
