Visitation Guidelines

Upon   admission   to   the   facility,   your   child   will   be   in   the   Orientation   Unit.   You   will   be   notified   of   any   changes   in visiting   times   for   your   child.      Visits   are   only   permitted   with   parents,   grandparents,   and/or   approved   legal   guardians.  Stepparents   are   permitted   to   visit   if   they   are   legally   married.    Siblings   or   children   of   the   resident   are   prohibited   from visitation.   If   the   visitor   arrives   with   a   child,   the   visitor   will   not   be   permitted   to   visit.   Children   are   not   permitted   in the facility or on the facility grounds, unattended, at any time.  Only   two   visitors   per   resident   are   permitted   at   one   time.   The   time   can   be   split   in   two   half-hour   units   in   order   to accommodate multiple visitors.  Please   arrive   20   minutes   before   the   start   of   the   scheduled   visitation   time.    After   visitation   has   started,   no   other visitors   will   be   permitted   to   enter   the   facility.    When   a   staff   member   declares   that   the   visitation   is   finished,   all   visitors must depart the facility grounds promptly.  All   visitors   must   present   valid   photo   identification   and   be   appropriately   dressed   for   the   visitation   environment.   All coats,   hats,   purses,   and   personal   property   must   be   stored   in   a   locker   in   the   Main   Lobby   Area.   We   suggest   you   leave all   other   personal   items   at   home   or   in   your   vehicle.   After   all   items   have   been   secured,   all   visitors   will   be   screened through   the   medal   detectors   for   any   further   contraband.   Once   a   visitor   has   been   cleared   of   contraband,   they   will wait   in   the   lobby   area   until   escorted   by   a   staff   member   to   the   visitation   area.    Any   visitor   disturbances   during   the contraband screening, or while waiting in the Main Lobby Area, may result in termination of visitation privileges.  Once   a   visitor   has   signed   in,   and   has   been   screened   for   contraband,   they   may   not   depart   the   facility   before   visitation begins.  Items are not to be given to the residents at visitation, unless approved by the Supervisor On-Duty.  Visitors   under   the   influence   of   drugs   or   alcohol   will   not   be   permitted   to   visit   and   will   be   directed   to   depart   the facility immediately.  Visitors   are   permitted   to   visit   and   converse   ONLY   with   the   resident   they   have   signed   in   to   visit.   Any   attempt   or speak   with   any   other   resident,   other   than   the   resident   they   are   visiting,   may   result   in   an   immediate   termination   of   the visit and the possible revocation of future visiting privileges.  Your child has the right to deny visitation, to which the Youth Intervention Center must honor that right.
