How to Contact Inmates at Omaha Correctional Center

There are two most used means of contacting an inmate at the Omaha Correctional Center. One option is to visit, and the other is to use the services of JPay. Both are good options that are easy to take advantage of, but some rules are attached to both.

Scheduling Visits

You must schedule your visitation at least seven days before your preferred date if you wish to visit. This will allow the OCC to approve your visit. You should have confirmation of approval a couple of days before the planned date.

You will need to fill out an online form to get the process started. Only approved visitors can be on the guest list. However, up to four adults and a reasonable number of kids can attend. You should arrive early to give yourself time for processing into the facility.

Visiting Hours are:

  • Sunday: 7:30a to 9:30a., 10a-12p., and 12:30p-2p.
  • Monday: None
  • Tuesday: None
  • Wednesday: 1p-3p, 3:30p.-5:30p., and 6p-8p.
  • Thurs: 1p-3p, 3:30p.-5:30p., and 6p-8p.
  • Friday: 1p-3p, 3:30p.-5:30p., and 6p-8p.
  • Saturday: 7:30a to 9:30a., 10a-12p., and 12:30p-2p.

When filling out the form, you should be prepared to provide:

  1. Whether You Are an Approved Visitor
  2. Your Name
  3. Your Address
  4. Your Email Address
  5. Your Phone Number
  6. Information about Other Visitors Who May Join You (name, email, phone for adults. For kids, names and ages)
  7. The Inmate's Name
  8. The Inmate's NDCS ID Number
  9. And the Date You Hope to Visit

When visiting, you should be mindful of the fact that your clothing and anything you may carry can impede your ability to visit with your loved one. Clothing should not be revealing or offensive. You should not wear hats, headbands, watches, exercise trackers, etc. Those items should be left at home.

JPay Services

For a fee, JPay can make it easy for you to send money to an inmate and connect with them on a more personal level, even if you are distanced by location. You can use the service to:

Please note: If sending pictures or a videogram, you should avoid using hand signs or showing illegal activities, nudity, sexual gestures, social media text or images, etc.

The only other way to have contact with an inmate at the OCC is to have them call you. You are not permitted to call them. Their phone calls to you will be collect calls, and their price can be several dollars for just a few minutes of talk time.

Is It Hard to Use the Services to Contact an Inmate?

Visiting an inmate can be difficult due to the space between you and Omaha, Nebraska. However, though the other services seem easy enough, this doesn't always make them ideal.

JPay can be expensive if you use their services often. You must worry about what may be seen in the background of your photographs and videograms, since a child walking by in their underwear during a video could mean you lose out on money or risk being blocked from the service.

Who wants to risk it? Or risk losing their money because they failed to notice a problem?

If you want to avoid some costs and simplify getting into contact with your loved one, DoNotPay can assist you. You can easily use the Connect with an Inmate feature if you have the inmate's ID and the prison's name. If you are unsure of the information, we can:
