Visitation days are Saturday and Sunday and state holidays unless the holiday falls on a Saturday or Sunday. If the holiday falls on a Saturday or Sunday, the regular visiting schedule applies.
Visitation hours vary by each facility. An inmate's security level dictates how many hours he or she may visit with approved visitors.
Important Note: All inmate visitors must submit a “Visitor Request Form." You can download a copy here, or request one from the facility. Background checks will be completed on everyone 18 or older. The inmate will notify you when the process is complete. The approval process takes approximately 8 weeks once the Visitor Request Form has been returned to JEHCC.
Level 1 - One hour, non-contact, 8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. (unless on Discipline Unit status) and legal/clergy visits.
Level 2 - Four hours per week, 12:30 - 4:30 pm
Level 3 - Six hours per week, 10:30 a.m. - 4:30 pm
Level 4 - Eight hours per week, 8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.
Exceptions and Cancellations
Any exception to visiting days or times must be approved by the Warden or designee at least three days before the visit. Visitors will not enter the facility parking lot before 8 a.m. the day of the visit.
Any exceptions will be handled through special visiting procedures and should be directed to the Warden.
Please refer to “Visitation Alert” on the DOC website for visitation dates cancelled due to budget constraints and staff furloughs.
