DOC Expands Modified In-Person Visitation
Beginning January 1, 2022, MODIFIED IN-PERSON VISITATION will be permitted for those younger than 18 and individuals who are not immediate family members.
In-person visits to inmates/residents will be made by pre-approved individuals only. Those wishing to visit should carefully review VISITATION RULES.
After reviewing the new visitation rules, you must visit website: https://telegov.egov.com/docrequest to complete a visitation appointment request form. Appointment requests can be made online from your mobile device or computer. All requests are pending review and approval by the Arkansas Department of Corrections.
Division of Community Correction Resident Visitation
Written information regarding procedures governing visitation will be made available to residents upon their arrival at the institution. At a minimum, the information will include, but not be limited to the following:
- Center address/phone number, directions to the center
- Days and hours of visitation
- Approved dress code and identification requirements for visitors
- Items authorized in the visiting room
- Special rules for children
- Special visits
Each resident is responsible for notifying his/her family and friends if they are approved or denied visiting privileges or if visiting privileges have been suspended or terminated. The web-based visitation system also sends out notifications.
A visitor application must be completed and returned to the address listed on the application. Applications are then processed, reviewed and either approved or denied by the Center Administrator. This process may take from seven days to three weeks. A criminal history check is completed on all prospective visitors.
