Ouachita River Unit Visiting Information:

Inmate Notification of Visiting Procedures
Written information regarding procedures governing visitation will be made available to inmates upon their arrival at the institution. At a minimum, the information will include, but not be limited to the following:

Institution address/phone number, directions to the institution.
Days and hours of visitation.
Approved dress code and identification requirements for visitors.
Items authorized in the visiting room.
Special rules for children.
Special visits
Each inmate is responsible for notifying his/her family and friends if they are approved or denied for visiting privileges or if visiting privileges have been suspended or terminated.

Visitor Applications
Each visitor must complete a visitation application and return to the address listed on the form. The inmate is responsible for providing visitors with applications. Applications are then processed, reviewed and either approved or denied by the Warden. This process can take from seven days to six weeks. A criminal history check is done on all prospective visitors.
Minor children, under age 18, may not be allowed to visit unless accompanied by an approved adult visitor, or upon proof of emancipation.
Visitors age 12 and older are required to provide photo identification for entry into a correctional facility
Visitation Hours and Number of Allowable Visitors
Visitation is either Saturday or Sunday. The inmate’s custody classification can determine when or if visitation is allowed. After you have been approved to visit the inmate, check with the individual unit for specific visiting hours. No visitation is allowed on the fifth Saturday or Sunday of the month or on holidays.

Four visitors are allowed during any one visit, including children. However, the spouse of an inmate and all children, regardless of the number, may visit when no other adults are present.

Special Visits
If the warden or center supervisor approves, special visits may be allowed any two days during the week and during regular visiting hours for approved visitors who live more than 300 miles from the unit. The visitor must request the visit 24 hours in advance during regular business hours. No special visits are allowed on holidays.

Entrance into Correctional Institutions
Any person or vehicle entering a correctional unit can be searched for contraband. Visitors in wheelchairs and those wearing wigs or religious headgear are also subject to search. If a wig or religious headgear is being worn, the visitor will be searched outside the presence of other visitors by an employee of the same gender. Entrance will be denied if a visitor is not willing to submit to a search. Visitors must also pass through a metal detector. Units randomly drug test visitors by use of an Ion Scanner. A positive scan can lead to a search of the visitor and his or her vehicle. Visitors are not allowed to bring cameras, pagers, cellular phones, pocketknives, or food into a facility. Visitors are allowed to bring a small coin purse, billfold, identification, baby bottles, baby diapers, diaper wipes, car keys and jewelry (being worn). The warden/center supervisor or designee may set limits on the amount of money that a visitor will be allowed to bring in. Visitors age 12 and older must provide photo identification.

Visitor Dress Code
Visitors cannot wear sleeveless tops, halter-tops, tank tops, hats, shorts, mini-skirts/dresses; see-through clothing or camouflage attire to any correctional facility. Brief cut or otherwise provocative clothing will not be permitted. Children age 10 or younger may be allowed to wear shorts during visitation. The department can deny visitation to any person who is dressed inappropriately

Inmate Telephone
Inmates are provided with coinless telephones during set hours of use. Inmates can only make collect calls to pre-approved numbers. Inmates cannot have cellular phones or calling cards. Inmates can lose their telephone privileges for disciplinary reasons. Each unit has its own telephone policy, so please check with the particular unit for specific hours of use. Boot Camp inmates may write and receive letters only. They have access to telephones only in emergency situations or to notify family or friends prior to graduation from the Boot Camp.

Tobacco Policy
Inmates are not allowed to have any kind of tobacco. This policy became effective January 17, 2000, and prohibits inmates from possessing “any smoking or smokeless tobacco product.” If an inmate does have tobacco, it is considered contraband and the inmate will be disciplined. Visitors and employees must leave all tobacco products in their vehicle. Bringing tobacco products into a facility will result in loss of visitation privileges.
