Clothing and personal hygeine:
Arrangements for exchanging clothing must be made at the end of visitation. No clothing will be exchanged before or during visitation. All clothing (except shoes) must be given to the Administrator on Duty, who will go through these items, list them in the detainee’s personal folder and have the detainee sign for items. No personal hygiene products will be accepted by the NRVJDH for any detainee. The NRVJDH shall supply all such products. Shoes will only be accepted by a Shift Supervisor based on genuine need of the detainee. If a Shift Supervisor is not on duty, the shoes will not be accepted (you may want to call ahead).
Reading materials such as books and magazines may be brought to a detainee with the understanding that it is being donated and becomes property of NRVJDH. The donated item will be given to the detainee first before going to the general population. Reading materials must be approved by the Administrator on Duty. All reading material shall be searched for contraband.
Outside food items will not be accepted.
Behavior during visitation:
Complete cooperation with detention center staff is expected during visitation times. Parents and detainees are expected to act appropriately during visitation. Any negative behavior on either party’s part may result in the cancellation of the remainder of the visit. Physical contact shall be limited to hugs and hand shakes. Nothing is to be given to or accepted from the detainee without the administrator’s approval. The passing of contraband items will revoke visitation privileges and court authorities will be notified of these actions. Staff may search detainees after visitation if they suspect that contraband may have been passed. NO INTOXICATED PARENT OR GUARDIAN WILL BE ALLOWED TO VISIT A DETAINEE WHILE IN DETENTION. The Administrator on Duty may revoke visitation privileges if the rules are violated, and such revocation is in the best interest of the detainee.

Personal phone calls:
Initially, all detainees are entitled to an intake phone call. All calls must be made to a parent or legal guardian and the detainee may only speak to his or her parent or legal guardian.
The behavior management program includes privileges the children may earn during their placement here at the detention home. If a child has behaved all week without any disciplinary actions being taken, he or she may place on the weekend.
Detainees are not allowed to receive any personal telephone calls. If the detainee’s Parent/Guardian has a cell phone, they will need to call Encartele at 866-476-6723 or visit Encartele on the web to set up a calling card account in order for you to receive calls.
