    The quote below is a direct copy and paste from the Inmate Handbook.

    The number of contact visits allowed each month will count toward this total number.

    Except in unusual circumstances, an offender will not be scheduled for a contact visit and

    a general (non-contact) visit on the same day or on the same weekend.

    1.5.1. Frequency of Contact Visits:

    Based upon institutional behavior, and provided that eligibility criteria are met,

    offenders in the following statuses and custody levels will be eligible for contact

    visits, with the frequency as indicated below:

    Custody Level

    Level 1 –G1, J1, P1

    Level 2 & 3 – G2, G3, J2, P2, P3

    Level 4 (Institutional offenders SAT 3 & 4

    with clear year and State Jail offenders with

    clear year) – G4, J4, P4

    All other Level 4’s – G4, P4, J4

    Level 5 – G5, J5, P5

    Level 5 (offenders on special penalty

    cell restriction) – G5, J5, P5

    Level 5 (GRAD offenders) – CG

    Protective Custody Level 1 – 4A

    Outside Trusty (OT), SAFP offenders (FT),

    IPTC offenders (IT)

    Medical (MD), Mental Health (MH),

    MROP (II)


    1 contact visit per week

    3 contact visits per month

    2 contact visits per month

    0 contact visits, 1 regular visit per week

    0 contact visits, 2 regular visits per


    0 contact visits, 1 regular visit per month

    1 regular visit per week

    3 contact visits per month

    1 contact visit per week

    (whatever computer recommended

    custody allows)


    Number of Visitors Allowed:

    Each offender is allowed to have up to two (2) adult visitors per visit. Children under 16

    years of age may visit without being counted in this number. The number of children

    allowed per visit will be based on the amount of space available for visitation and on the

    visitor's ability to manage and control the children. Two seats are provided for visitors at

    each visitation station...


    Approved Visitors List:

    During the reception and diagnostic process, each offender shall be asked to submit a list

    of no more than ten (10) names of proposed visitors to the Warden or designee. Each

    name submitted must include the physical address of the proposed visitor and the

    visitor's relationship to the offender. An offender must request to have a visitor added to

    the list. The visitor cannot request the addition. The offender is required to identify all

    individuals on his proposed Visitors List who are on active probation, parole or mandatory

    supervision release. Newly received offenders will be given sufficient time to obtain

    visitors' addresses for inclusion on the initial Visitors List. (Offenders may only include

    physical addresses for visitors; post office boxes are not permitted.)


    Children under 16 years of age do not have to be included on an offender’s

    Visitors List to be eligible to visit and will not be counted toward the number of


    visitors allowed per visit. Children under 16 years of age must be accompanied

    by an adult (18 years old or older) who is listed on the offender's approved

    Visitors List..."

    I hope this helps. Good Luck

    Get a No Cost Background Check Scan at

    Its a sensible way to start. The site allows you to do a no cost scan simply to find out if any sort of data is in existence. A smaller analysis is done without cost. To get a detailed report its a modest payment.

    You may not realize how many good reasons there are to try and find out more about the people around you. After all, whether you're talking about new friends, employees, doctors, caretakers for elderly family members, or even significant others, you, as a citizen, have a right to know whether the people you surround yourself with are who they say they are. This goes double in any situation that involves your children, which not only includes teachers and babysitters, but also scout masters, little league coaches and others. Bottom line, if you want to find out more about someone, you should perform a background check.
