West Shoreline Correctional Facility (MTF), Visiting Information:

The prisoner must complete a Visitor List form (CAJ-334) identifying immediate family members* and not more than 10 other potential visitors. Those persons the prisoner has placed on his/her visiting list must complete a Visiting Application (CAJ-103) to request approval to visit. The Visiting Application must be submitted in advance to allow for review of the Application. INCLUDING A SELF-ADDRESSED-STAMPED ENVELOPE WHEN THE APPLICATION IS RETURNED WILL ENSURE THAT THE PROPOSED VISITOR IS PROVIDED NOTIFICATION OF HIS/HER APPROVAL OR DENIAL TO VISIT. NO VISITS WILL BE ALLOWED WITHOUT THIS APPROVAL.


*Immediate Family Member: A grandparent, parent, stepparent, spouse, mother-in-law, father-in-law, child, step-child, grandchild, sibling, half-sibling, stepbrother and stepsister. An aunt or uncle may be included if adequate verification is provided that they served as a surrogate parent. If there is inadequate documentation in the prisoner's file to confirm this relationship, the prisoner or family member will be required to provide the documentation necessary to adequately confirm the relationship.


A proposed visitor shall be approved for placement on the prisoner's approved visitors list if all of the following criteria are met:


The proposed visitor is not subject to a current visitor restriction.
The proposed visitor is not a prisoner or a former prisoner in any jurisdiction. However, prisoner or former prisoner who is an immediate family member may be placed on the prisoner's approved visitors list with prior approval of the Warden of the facility where the visit will occur.
The proposed visitor is not on parole or probation in any jurisdiction as a result of a felony conviction. However, a parolee or probationer who is an immediate family member may be placed on the prisoner's approved visitors list with prior approval of the Warden of the facility where the visit will occur and written approval of the supervising field agent.
The person is 18 years of age or older, an emancipated minor, or the minor child, stepchild, grandchild, sibling, step-sibling or half-sibling of the prisoner. However, a minor child, stepchild, grandchild, sibling, step-sibling or half-sibling of the prisoner shall not be approved for placement on the prisoner's approved visitors list under any of the following circumstances.
The Department is notified that there is a court order prohibiting visits between the minor child and prisoner;
The Department is notified that the parental rights of the prisoner for his/her child have been terminated;
The prisoner has been convicted of child abuse, criminal sexual conduct or any other assaultive or violent behavior against the minor or sibling of the minor unless an exception has been granted by the Director upon request of the warden. The warden will be notified in writing if an exception is granted.
The proposed visitor is not on another prisoner's approved visitors list except as an immediate family member. In other words, a visitor may be on the list of all prisoners who are immediate family members, but only on the list of one prisoner who is not an immediate family member.
If the proposed visitor is a Department employee, s/he may visit only as set forth in the Employee Handbook.
If the proposed visitor is a volunteer, s/he may visit only as set forth in Policy Directive 03.02.105 "Volunteer Program".


Notwithstanding the above, the warden may deny placement of anyone on a prisoner's approved visitor list for the safety or security of the facility, protection of the public, previous violations of visiting room rules by the proposed visitor or for other reasonable cause as determined by the warden.

West Shoreline Correctional Facility (MTF), Additional information:

Parole and Probation
The Field Operations Administration (FOA) is responsible for state parole and probation supervision as well as other methods of specialized supervision.


FOA’s parole and probation offices are located in 10 regions throughout the state. While on parole, an offender is typically supervised by a parole agent for a period of one to four years. An offender is managed and guided by a parole agent who serves as a resource to increase the offender’s successful reintegration into the community. Parole Agents coordinate needed services for the offender such as mental health treatment, substance abuse counseling, housing and employment. Probation agents supervise offenders convicted of certain misdemeanors and felonies to ensure that the probationer complies with a court’s probation order. Unlike parole, conditions of probation are set by the court that retains legal control over the probationer’s status.


The FOA also employs specialized supervision of offenders including the use of electronic monitoring of offenders in the community, sex offender specific caseloads, quick and decisive responses to technical parole violations in lieu of return to incarceration, and coordinating and overseeing offenders who are supervised under the Interstate Compact Agreement.


The Parole Board which is the sole paroling authority for felony offenders committed to the jurisdiction of the Michigan Department of Corrections is also located under FOA.

Duration:

No time limit unless space availability is limited.

      Hi Yvonne,

      Please note the following information:

      The customer (family member or other) will have to purchase “stamps” or a subscription through JPay in order to send electronic messages.

      All mail is electronically scanned by JPay for security issues and then sent to the Michigan Department of Corrections where is is reviewed again prior to being released to the prisoner.S ending messages with inapprpriate content may delay processing or result in rejection of the message.
      Prisoners will receive a printed copy of the electronic message. The prisoner may respond the message by purchasing “electronic stamps” from JPay on the kiosk. Kiosk messages are stored on the kiosk for viewing at a later date. Prisoners are allowed to store up to 75 messages. A printed copy of the electronic message may be requested by the prisoner for a nominal fee.

      Please see Director’s Office Memorandum 2013-3 : Electronic Messages for more information.

      Securepak Program – How it Works
      The Securepak Program is a Department-approved customized package program that allows family members and others to send authorized items to prisoners while safeguarding against the introduction of contraband. Prisoners in general population also may place orders for their personal use in accordance with institutional ordering procedures. A vendor catalog identifying items available for purchase through the Securepak Program is available to prisoners in each general population housing unit and in other areas of the institution.

      There is a limit of $85, not including tax and shipping, per Securepak order placed. For prisoners, this is in addition to the $100 bi-weekly limit on the purchase of Standardized Store List items from the prisoner store.

      Only one Securepak order may be placed by or for a prisoner per quarter (i.e., Jan-Mar; Apr-Jun; Jul-Sep; Oct-Dec). Only the first order placed by or for a prisoner each quarter will be processed, regardless of who placed the order or the value of the order.

      Prisoners are prohibited from receiving Securepak orders known to be purchased by or on behalf of another prisoner, parolee, or probationer. Prisoners also are prohibited from receiving Securepak orders known to be purchased by a family member of another prisoner, parolee, or probationer unless the purchaser also is a family member of the prisoner receiving the item. A “family member” is defined as a grandparent, parent, stepparent, spouse, mother-in-law, father-in-law, child, stepchild, grandchild, sibling, stepbrother, and stepsister; an aunt and/or uncle also is considered a family member if there is adequate verification that the aunt and/or uncle served as a surrogate parent of the prisoner. Violations of these rules could result in a restriction of Securepak privileges.

      For additional information about this program, see PD 04.02.135 – Securepak Program, or visit the Securepak website at http://www.michiganpackages.com.

    If I am on a friends list at the woman’s facility (Huron Valley) would I be able to visit my grandson’s father if I am listed on his visitors list. I wanted to talk my grandson to visit his father, he will be turning 18 August 24, 2014 and has visited his father previously.

      Hi Charlene,

      If you are on the inmate’s visitors list, you should be able to visit with your grandson. We recommend your calling the facility directly to confirm that you will not have any problem.

    Where do we mail our requests to?

  5. PrsonP@th May 30, 2017 at 11:31 am #

    Hi Dawn,

    Mail the completed visitation application to the mail room or deliver to the information desk of the facility you are requesting to visit. Do not mail the application to the prisoner. Including a self-addressed-stamped envelope when this application is returned will ensure that you receive notification of your approval or denial to visit.
