Default Dorchester Penitentiary - Visiting

Dorchester Penitentiary

Visitors must be approved before visitng.
Normally this can be done within 2 months
You must call no more than 7 days, no less than 24 hours before visit to be put on list.
Inmates are allowed 1 visit a week
Visits are contact unless inmate is in the hole or contact visits are taken away.
Visiting hours are daily 9-11am and 1-345pm. You are allowed to come to both time slots. The only days you cannot visit is Tuesday and Fridays.
Must pass through metal detector and wand before entering. They also have ION scanner sometimes and once had the drug dog.
You can bring in money for the inmate which is given to guards in visiting room.
Only other thing you can bring in is a key to your locker, change for vending machines ($10 change per visitor ~ max of 3 visitors) and you can wear in your wedding/engagement rings.
There is a childrens area with a picnic table and toys etc.
You cannot bring in anything for baby. No bottle with milk, juice, snacks , nothing.
Rules state you can only kiss and hug at the beginning and end of your visit but my experience is they are pretty slack as long as you are respectful.
There are cards and board games behind the desk you help yourself to.
You can go to vending machines downstairs as you please. Bathroom is downstairs also.
There is no smoking and no outdoor area.
You can have pictures taken but inmate must purchase ticket at canteen beforehand.
Visiting room is never overbooked so you will always get your full visit.

Thank you LovinJus for providing this information
