I would like to visit o the weekend what are the times

brad
Editor

Hi Diana,
Upon arriving at the institution, the visitor must state the name and SCDC number of the inmate they wish to visit. This information is entered into the automated system and if the individual is listed on the inmate’s approved visiting list, a visitor’s pass will be generated for the individual. [Inmates may only have one visit per day; therefore, all visitors must be together. For specific times for visitation, we recommend calling directly the prison.

Hi Joan,
The mail should be forwarded to your husband’s next facility. Regarding the mailing of medications to an inmate is not the usual process at any prison since illegal drugs could be mailed in that fashion. We recommend your contacting the medical unit at the next facility to confirm the process or your husband’s case manager.
