Detention Visitation Guidelines


Visitation Schedules

Detention Visitation Guidelines


  • Upon admission to the facility, your child will be in the Orientation Unit. You will be notified of any changes in visiting times for your child.   
  • Visits are only permitted with parents, grandparents, and/or approved legal guardians.  Stepparents are permitted to visit if they are legally married.  Siblings or children of the resident are prohibited from visitation. If the visitor arrives with a child, the visitor will not be permitted to visit. Children are not permitted in the facility or on the facility grounds, unattended, at any time. 
  • Only two visitors per resident are permitted at one time. The time can be split in two half-hour units in order to accommodate multiple visitors. 
  • Please arrive 20 minutes before the start of the scheduled visitation time.  After visitation has started, no other visitors will be permitted to enter the facility.  When a staff member declares that the visitation is finished, all visitors must depart the facility grounds promptly. 
  • All visitors must present valid photo identification and be appropriately dressed for the visitation environment.
  • All coats, hats, purses, and personal property must be stored in a locker in the Main Lobby Area. We suggest you leave all other personal items at home or in your vehicle. After all items have been secured, all visitors will be screened through the medal detectors for any further contraband. Once a visitor has been cleared of contraband, they will wait in the lobby area until escorted by a staff member to the visitation area.  Any visitor disturbances during the contraband screening, or while waiting in the Main Lobby Area, may result in termination of visitation privileges. 
  • Once a visitor has signed in, and has been screened for contraband, they may not depart the facility before visitation begins. 
  • Items are not to be given to the residents at visitation, unless approved by the Supervisor On-Duty. 
  • Visitors under the influence of drugs or alcohol will not be permitted to visit and will be directed to depart the facility immediately. 
  • Visitors are permitted to visit and converse ONLY with the resident they have signed in to visit. Any attempt or speak with any other resident, other than the resident they are visiting, may result in an immediate termination of the visit and the possible revocation of future visiting privileges. 
  • Your child has the right to deny visitation, to which the Youth Intervention Center must honor that right.
