Talking First Visit | Shirley Medium

So I just got approved on my boyfriend's visiting list. This is my first time visiting a Massachusetts jail so I'm not sure how the whole process goes. I have to drive about 2 hours, any help or advice anyone can give is greatly appreciated.

Hi SimplyS92 I'm sorry you haven't gotten an answer to your question. I'm not familiar with Massachusetts, so I looked up their DOC's info page for visits:

https://www.mass.gov/files/documents/2018/03/29/MCI-S%20Min-483.pdf

It seems to have some pretty detailed information: Visitation hours, where to park, arrival time, procedure for check-in, dress code & exceptions, allowable items, etc.

I hope this helps and that you have a wonderful visit!!

FYI: Always take extra clothing, just in case they're nit-picking that particular day Also, if renting a car, go through it with a fine tooth comb.... if the dogs hit on it & its searched, anything found will be attributed to you.

So I had my first visit, I arrived and waited at the gate. Once it was 12pm I was able to enter the facility. I parked and went inside to grab a number, I then proceed to fill out the inmate request form. I waited for my number to be called and I then went to the window for processing, you need your licenses plate number FYI, I was then processed and put my belongings in the locker($0.25). I then proceeded to get a canteen card ( $1) and added money ($40 fills the card). I waited for them to call my boyfriends last name and then proceeded to be searched and go through the metal detector. After that I was able to go in and I sat and waited for my boyfriend to come out. To sum it all up if its your first time going alone its not that bad
