Those Detainees serving weekends (48 hours or less per visit) are not eligible for parental visitation privileges. During normal visitation, you shall be guided by the following policies and procedures:
Prior to Visitation:
All visitors must present photo identification and register upon entering the facility for visitation or they will be denied visitation. Staff must verify the relationship and identity of the parent/guardian seeking visitation. Visitors are required to leave all personal items in their cars, only photo ID and car key will be permitted in the building. Visitors will be required to pass through a metal detector. Please avoid wearing items that will set it off such as bras with metal underwire or shoes/boots with steel toes or arches. If a visitor is unable to pass metal detection successfully, they will not be allowed to visit. NO INTOXICATED PARENT OR GUARDIAN WILL BE ALLOWED TO VISIT A DETAINEE. Visitors who have an odor of tobacco, marijuana or alcohol on their person may be asked to leave the grounds.
Beginning in May 4, 2022: Visitation is on Wednesdays (6:00pm – 6:30pm and Sundays 1:00pm-1:30pm). In-person only.
Visitor check-in will begin 15 minutes before your scheduled visitation time. Late arrivals will not be accepted.
Parents or legal guardians who cannot visit during these hours due to justifiable reasons must make special arrangements with NRVJDH. This visit must be pre-approved by the NRVJDH and scheduled at a time when staff can directly supervise the visit. For a detainee in restriction, visits are limited to fifteen (15) minutes. There may be occasions when visitation times need to be shortened. This decision will be made by the Administrator on duty.
Who may visit:
Only parents or legal guardians are allowed to visit. If the placing agency/jurisdiction feels a visit from a detainee’s grandparents is in the best interest of the detainee, a written request to allow the above mentioned individuals must be sent to the NRVJDH. It is imperative that the written request be received and approved by the Superintendent prior to these visitors coming to the detention home. Individuals other than parents or legal guardians who seek to visit must obtain approval from the placing agency/jurisdiction. Once granted, the placing agency/jurisdiction must accompany the individuals and supervise the visit. These visits shall not be conducted during normal visitation hours but shall be scheduled in advance with the NRVJDH. All visitors must have valid picture identification. Proof of guardianship must be provided (if other than parents) or the visitor will be denied visitation until verification can be obtained from the placing agency/jurisdiction. A detainee has the right to refuse any visitor.
What you must do to visit:
All visitors must present photo identification and register upon entering the facility for visitation or they will be denied visitation. Staff must verify the relationship and identity of the parent/guardian seeking visitation. Visitors are required to leave all personal items in their cars. No personal items may be brought into the detention home beyond the front lobby. Every visitor will be subject to metal detector search.
Where visitation takes place:
Normal visitations will take place in the activity area. Only two (2) visitors at any time shall be allowed to visit with a detainee during visitation.
