In-person visiting expands at prisons


The Arkansas Department of Correction­s will expand a modified in-person visitation pilot, according to a news release.

Facilities will include McPherson Unit, North Central Unit, Central Arkansas Community Correction Center, East Central Arkansas Community Correction Center, Omega Supervisio­n Sanction Center and Southwest Arkansas Community Correction Center.

The visitation pilot, which began in December, will continue at the Benton Work Release, Delta Regional Unit, Northeast Arkansas Community Correction Center and Northwest Arkansas Community Correction Center.

Due to the covid-19 public health emergency, in-person visits to inmates/residents will be made by pre-approved individual­s only. Immediate, adult family members may submit requests for visitation appointmen­ts.

Those wishing to visit should review the new visitation rules can visit the website quest to complete a visitation appointmen­t request form.
