    Host: Can my family visit me?

    Ed Bales: Yes. Inmates can have relatives and friends who are approved on their visiting list, come to visit. Usually the lower level you are in, the less time you have for visits. It's usually done on an odd even basis, depending on what's your registration number is. But yes, you can have visiting time. Usually you will have a day-and-a-half to three days a week that you can have visits.
