It is strongly recommended that visitors arrive 30 minutes early for visitation.  Visitors MUST, however, arrive fifteen (15) minutes prior to the scheduled visiting hour.  NO VISITORS WILL BE ACCEPTED TO VISITING AFTER THE 15 MINUTE CUT OFF - NO EXCEPTIONS.  Visitors must present two (2) pieces of I.D., one being a picture form I.D.  Each visitor is allowed to bring up to $5.00 in coins or dollar bills if they wish to purchase items from the visiting room vending machines.  No other personal items are allowed in the visiting area, including keys, purses, hats, jackets, etc.  Lockers are provided in the waiting area for visitors to secure personal belongings while visiting.  These lockers are operated with 25¢ in quarter form.  The locker key must be kept in the visitor’s possession through visitation.  Detainees are not allowed to bring any money or vending items back to the units with them.  All vending items must be consumed during the visitation time.  Braiding of hair is strictly prohibited during visitation.  Any visitor who violates the visitation rules is being disruptive, or is suspected of being under the influence of alcohol or drugs will be required to leave the visitation area immediately.  Any special visiting requests must be made to the Detention Manager at DCYC.




Community Tours

If you have a child who is struggling with making right choices and you are concerned that he/she may be going down the wrong path, the Community Tour may be able to assist you. We will invite you and your child to our facility to talk about these issues.
