Visitation hours vary by each facility. An inmate's security level dictates how many hours he or she may visit with approved visitors.
EWCC is a minimum-security facility, and its inmates may receive up to eight hours per week, excluding holidays.
State-recognized holidays that fall on Monday through Friday are "free" visiting days. That means that, while an inmates' allowable number of hours for visiting still corresponds with their security level, holiday visitation will not count toward their total number of allowed visitation hours.
If the holiday falls on a Saturday or Sunday, visitation hours count on total visiting privilege level hours.
Saturdays, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m
Sundays, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
All state-recognized holidays
All inmate visitors must submit a “Visitor Request Form.” You can download a copy here, or request one from the facility.
Background checks will be completed on everyone 18 and older. The inmate will notify you when the process is complete. The approval process takes approximately 8 weeks once the Visitor Request Form has been returned to EWCC.
Special extended visits are allowed for staff-identified individuals who travel long distances, volunteers or team members who partner with ODOC in reentry services, attorney/clergy, etc. The facility's warden determines the length and conditions of all special visits. Special visits for ministers/religious leaders must be scheduled in advance through the Warden.
Requests for special visits must be made by the inmate using the appropriate request form and must be submitted by the inmate to unit staff at least two weeks in advance so verifications can be made. Exceptions to time frames may be considered in emergencies.
