What Should I Write About?

Visiting Danville Correctional Center

You must communicate with your inmate before arriving, and you must be placed on an approved visitation list.

At the time of writing, Danville is implementing visitation hours based on COVID-19 vaccination status. This might change in the upcoming months, so you must communicate with your inmate first. Don't just show up at the facility and expect to visit your inmate at any time!

Once you've established a time to visit, follow these key rules:

  • Arrive at least ten minutes before your visitation
  • Bring two forms of ID
  • Leave electronics at home, that includes cell phones, iPods, earphones, and the like
  • Dress appropriately: sneakers, jeans, and a t-shirt will do
  • Don't wear any "gang colors" or motorcycle club gear

It's usually okay to give your inmate a quick hug, and holding hands is probably fine. But you should behave calmly and appropriately during the visit. You won't be allowed to "make out" with your inmate or sit on his lap.
