Visiting an Offender

ALERT: COVID-19 SUSPENSION OF VISITATION
Given the risks associated with the spread of COVID-19, the Colorado Department of Corrections has begun to modify operations at our facilities.

At this time, in order to best protect CDOC facilities, effective immediately the Department of Corrections will suspend all visiting in our facilities. DOC understands that this will greatly impact the inmate population, but have made the difficult decision that the risk of a visitor potentially bringing COVID-19 into a facility is something that must be prevented to the extent possible. 

CDOC has implemented video visiting in all facilities (please see section on Implementation of Video Visiting further down the page) and is providing all offenders in our custody one free 10 minute phone call per week in order to assist offenders in staying connected to those they care about. 

Legal visits will still occur but will be non-contact visits.

Please see the full announcement regarding our modified operations at https://www.colorado.gov/pacific/cdoc/news/3-11-2020-operational-changes-colorado-department-corrections-facilities-prevention-covid-19.  Additional information regarding the department's response to COVID-19 may be found at https://www.colorado.gov/pacific/cdoc/covid-19-faq-and-updates.
