Inmate Visitation

 

A. Visiting is a privilege and will be extended to inmates as described below.

a. Visitor Guidelines

WTRJ is committed to encouraging relationships between inmates, their family and friends. We strongly feel that visitation is an important part of inmate rehabilitation. At the same time WTRJ must provide for the safety/security of the facility, staff, inmates, and most importantly, the safety of other visitors, the public and you.

b. Visitation Termination

Your visit will be terminated if:

  1. The inmate violates any established rules and regulations.
  2. The visitor does not comply with the rules and regulations governing visitation.

Note: ALL visitors are subject to search. Refusal to be searched will cancel your visit.
Note: All visitors must acknowledge that visitation is a privilege and may be suspended. Violation of the privilege may result in disciplinary action against inmate/visitor. Inmates on administrative/disciplinary segregation or in control status may be denied visitation.

c. Visitors Per Inmate

Due to increased occupancy and limited visitation space, WTRJ limits lobby and visitor panel access only to authorized visitors.
NO MORE THAN TWO (2) AUTHORIZED VISITORS PER INMATE ARE ALLOWED.

  1. Inmates are allowed one (1) twenty (20) minute visit.
