Items you Can Send to Young Medical Complex

You are allowed to send letters and cards to offenders. Subscriptions to magazines and newspapers are also allowed. Books can be sent from a book store but not by you personally. If you are in doubt about what is acceptable in the way of books, magazines or anything else please call the unit mail room and ask them if what you want to send will be allowed. It is better to call and be sure than to spend money on something the offender might not be able to have. You may send envelopes and writing paper from an approved vendor but not from you personally. Something you might want to remember is that when you send envelopes the offender is required to put his name on each envelope when they are given to him. If you send 50 then he will be expected to stand there and write his name on all 50 of them. Most things that are printed from the Internet such as word searches and puzzles are allowed.

Items You May Not Send To Young Medical Complex
You may not send any personal items, clothing, stamps, or stamped envelopes. Any time you are in doubt about what you want to mail please call the unit mail room and ask.

Young Medical Complex Visiting Information

Visits are allowed on Saturday and Sunday from 8:00 AM until 5:00 PM Most visits are for 2 hours and may be contact or non-contact depending on the offenders status.
If you must travel more than 300 miles you might qualify for a Special Visit. To arrange a special visit call the Wardens Office. Be sure and get the name of who you talk to (usually warden's secretary). They will arrange the visit if it is possible and ask you to call back for confirmation. Inmates are allowed ONLY one visit per weekend unless it is a special visit. It is always a good idea to call ahead before any visit to be sure that your friend or family member is still at that unit and is allowed visits

Dress Code For Visitors

No revealing clothing is allowed, no shorts for men or women, Capri pants must come WELL below the knee. No sleeveless or low cut shirts or blouses are allowed. Clothing that is too tight or inappropriate in any way can prevent you from visiting. Some units do not allow children to wear shorts. If this is an issue for you please call ahead and ask about the dress code for children. Sandals are allowed at this time but many units are starting to disallow them so tennis shoes or the like are safest. Please be aware that if you violate the dress code your visit may not be allowed.

Rules For Visitation

When you enter the unit don't take anything in with you except your Drivers License, car keys, and $20.00 in quarters in a clear plastic bag. Your car will be searched as you enter and leave the unit. This policy varies at each unit. You will be wand searched at most units before you are allowed to enter the unit. Children are wand searched also. Please do not carry your cell phone in with you. This can cause your visits to be terminated permanently. If in doubt about anything call the unit for more information. Be aware that the address that the offender gives for you MUST match the address on your drivers license. I have seen visitors turned away because the addresses didn't match.

Phone Calls at Young Medical Complex

Inmates are allowed one phone call every 90 days if their status allows. Calls are for 5 minutes and are carried out on a speaker phone so the guard can listen in.

Pending Services: TDCJ now has new phone system/services/privileges that are currently pending implementation in order to comply with recently passed legislation. The contract for the work is to be awarded by September 1, 2008, though we have no idea when the actual work to install the systems will begin on each unit. The cost of the calls is supposed to be similar to that of calls from most county jails and the calls will be limited to 120 minutes/month as an extended privilege to the inmate.
