- General Visitation
Inmates committed to the Cumberland County Prison must complete a visitors list identifying those people they wish to have visitation with during their incarceration. Once approved, visitation is scheduled according to the housing unit the inmate resides in. Inmates are responsible for informing their visitors of visiting times.
All visitors must be over the age of 18 unless accompanied by a parent or guardian and must have current photo identification. All inmate visitation is secure (inmate and visitor are separated by a barrier) with the exception of those inmates who are classified as Trustees or Work Release who have contact visiting privileges.
General Visiting Information:
- Everyone entering this Prison is subject to search. Authority for such search is contained in Purdon’s, Title 61, Section 384.
- All electronic devices including cell phones are prohibited in the visitation rooms. Any violations will result in visitation suspension for both the inmate and visitor.
- All visitors are required to sign in on a “Visitation Registration Log.”
- Visitors must be dressed in socially acceptable clothing. A visitor’s dress code is published in various areas of the public lobby and visiting areas.
