TDCJ PROCEDURE UPDATE (Effective December 28th, 2023):
The TDCJ would like to remind families and friends of measures in place and some enhanced procedures implemented when visiting your loved one at a unit. Documenting and searching the vehicle when entering and exiting a TDCJ facility are consistent with current procedures and will be conducted each visit.
All visitors, 18 years of age and older, are subject to being searched. During the registration or check-in process, visitors 18 years of age and older will be required to present a current official government-issued ID, and visitation staff will retain the identification during the visit. At the conclusion of the visit, the inmate will exit the visitation area, while family and friends remain seated in the visitation area until excused to leave by staff. At that time, visitors will proceed to check-out, their ID will be returned to them, and they will depart the unit
