Pocahontas State 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.


No time limit unless space availability is limited.

      Hi Shalonda,
