Visitation at Miami Correctional Facility

Before a person even thinks about visiting an inmate at Miami Correctional, there is a lengthy document outlining the Policy and Administrative Procedures for inmate visitation. You should read this thoroughly before going to the actual application for visitation, which must be completed before you can schedule your visit.

A PDF copy of the application can be found here.

Once your application has been approved, you will then need to become familiar with the rules for visitation.

To better illustrate the rules for visitation at Miami Correctional, look at this document prepared for the facility and approved by the warden, William R. Hyatte, in May 2018. This document outlines what you need to do for a visit to a prison inmate in great detail.

Twenty-one rules explain everything from when visits can occur to the dress code and proper behavior during inmate visitation.

Telephone Calls to Inmates in Miami Correctional Facility

Inmates at Miami Correctional Facility are not allowed to receive incoming phone calls. However, they are allowed to make phone calls.

Inmates can only make collect phone calls, and if the call is going to a prepaid cellular or regular cell phone line, you will need to set up an account with ConnectNetwork to receive collect calls via cellular phone. Keep in mind that collect calls from inmates can be rather expensive.

The Commissary

Inmates are allowed to purchase items beyond their basic necessities. They can purchase things like shoes, socks, underwear, and hygiene products through the commissary, provided they have money on their prison commissary account. This brings us to our next section, sending money to Miami Correctional Facility inmates.

How to Send Money to Inmates in Miami Correctional Facility

There are three ways to send money to a Miami Correctional Inmate, and we will outline them here.

  1. Lock Box. This is a no-fee service that has a shorter hold time for money coming into the inmate's account. You can send money orders, personal checks, or cashier's checks. You must use a deposit slip provided by JPay, a prison financial service.
  2. EFT (Electronic Funds Transfer) A paid service that usually only holds the funds for one to three days and can be used via ConnectNetwork mentioned earlier or JPay also mentioned.
  3. You can also mail funds directly to the facility at the address above.
