TDCJ OMBUDSMAN BULLETIN TO OFFENDER FAMILY GROUPS
(Please disseminate to your respective group members)

New Visitor Tracking System

Here are the notices that will be posted for offenders and visitors regarding the new check-in system.
Please disseminate these as widely as possible so that people can already have the forms completed when they come to visit.
They can also mail these forms directly to the
Chief of Classification at their loved one's unit of assignment.

We are working on getting this information on the TDCJ website.
I will advise you when we get it posted on the website.

Thank you for your assistance in getting this information out.

The only one I wasn't able to open is the notice to offenders. What's it say? Is it important for vistors to know?

On Friday, July 18, 2008, TDCJ will begin a new visitor check-in system for family members and friends coming to visit TDCJ offenders.

All visitors will be asked to provide additional information for TDCJ computer records prior to entering the visitation area. Visitor Identification for visitors 18 years of age and older is a pictured and signed identification (ID) of one (1) of the following: (1) valid state drivers’ license; (2) valid state Department of Public Safety (DPS) ID card; (3) valid Armed Forces ID card; (4) passport; or (5) ID card issued by the United States Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Citizenship & Immigration Services (USCIS) (i.e., Visa Border Crossing ID Card). Children 17 years of age and younger may be required to provide ID (e.g., birth certificate, ID card, valid student ID card [student ID card shall be used only for children 17 years old and younger]). Visitors will also need to provide an address, telephone number, date of birth, and vehicle information.

An offender convicted and sentenced for current or prior crimes involving sexual offenses against children or offenses causing bodily injury to a child (child victim was under the age of 17) is restricted from having contact visits with children under the age of 17. The offender may have a general visit with a child under the age of 17 only if the offender is the legally recognized parent (biological/adoptive) of the child and the child was not the victim of the offense. Before the visit can occur, the legal guardian must complete the Child Victim Restriction Affidavit attesting that the offender is the legally recognized parent of the child and the child was not the victim of any offense for which the offender has been convicted or placed on deferred adjudication. After September 1, 2008 children will not be permitted to visit an offender who is restricted from having contact visits with children under the age of 17 until the affidavit is completed.

When possible, please notify those on your visiting list of the implementation of this new system.

Thank you.

I went they never had me fill out that form. My husband was even told by someone on the same block as him that they had thier family fill out one. But I sent a copy to my husband so he could see what I was talking about. So, I got it saved just incase I need it and will print it the next time I go. Thanks!!

The inmate still has to provide the visitor's information and get them approved and put on the list. Then on your first visit you bring the form or fill one out there. I guess they cross-check the info or something.

Post You will get to visit!

If you can't print the form out at home you can get a copy at the prison and fill it out there. They may allow you to take it with you and mail it or bring it back. You will get to visit though!

Why do they need so much of our info we aren't the inmates? That's crazy.
