As your youth progress through the program, he will earn this privilege.
A. Intake: may visit with parents/legal guardian, pastors, or legal personnel, only.
B. Citizens may visit with parents/legal guardian, pastors, or legal personnel, only.
C. Deputies may visit with parents/legal guardians, siblings, grandparents (grandparents and siblings must be accompanied by parents/legal guardians; regardless of age), pastor, or legal personnel only.
D. Executives and Honors may visit with parents/legal guardians, siblings, grandparents (grandparents and siblings must be accompanied by parents/legal guardians; regardless of age), pastor, or legal personnel only.
Visits are made by appointment only and will last 40 minutes (only 2 per week). These visits need to be scheduled at least 24 hours in advance, along with who will be visiting. If a youth is on probationary status, he will be limited to visits with parents/legal guardians, pastors, or legal personnel only.
Parents/family from the same, or two different, households who will not be visiting together are expected to work out visitation arrangements amongst themselves. Pastors may visit youth, if approved by the youth’s home court (please see religious rights/privileges section). This visit does not count toward your 2 visits per week.
Visitors and youth may be searched prior to a visit. You will be searched following all visits. You are not permitted to take any object, gift, or item from a visitor, ever. All items must be approved and searched by staff before youth can receive them. You are also not permitted to take anything to your visit.
Consequences: Youth who take an item during visitation will be subject to appropriate consequences. These consequences may vary according to severity. At an absolute minimum, the youth will lose his next visitation with that family member.
If you are having behavioral difficulties, are viewed as a safety threat, or are on seclusion, your visit for that day will be canceled and can be rescheduled.
No food or drink will be permitted in the visitation room.
