DOC Expands Modified In-Person Visitation

Secretary of Corrections Solomon Graves announced that beginning Jan. 1, 2022, the Arkansas Department of Corrections will be expanding MODIFIED IN-PERSON VISITATION to allow visits from those younger than 18 and individuals who are not immediate family members.

Due to the COVID-19 public health emergency, 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 may visit the website: 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. The safe resumption of in-person visitation is a priority for the Board of Corrections, Secretary Graves, and both Division Directors. We greatly appreciate the ongoing patience and understanding of residents, inmates and their loved ones as well as the overwhelming support our staff has received during this public health crisis. While visitation remains modified, we encourage friends and family to remain in contact through phone calls and video visits.
