Policy Advisory 2018 Visiting Procedure Changes
To all visitors
The department recognizes the importance visitors have on an inmate's well-being and successful reentry into the community, and strongly encourages family reunification. While offering visiting privileges to inmates, the department is also committed to ensuring the safety of all public, staff, visitors and inmates throughout the department.
The department is instituting new procedures for processing inmate visitors beginning March 23, 2018. Upon promulgation, 103 CMR 483 will be available in all institution inmate libraries and should be reviewed in its entirety. The changes to the visiting procedures will be outlined in 103 CMR 483.10. Please review the applicable memos and forms which may be found at the bottom of this page in the Downloads Section, in both English and Spanish.
