How to Connect With a Western Illinois Correctional Center Inmate in Person

If you wish to visit your loved one in the Western Illinois Correctional Center, you must adhere to their 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. visitation schedule. You should also note that inmates can only receive seven visitors per month and not more than two during the weekends and holidays. While visiting your loved one, expect to be checked one hour before the end of the visiting hours. You should also be an approved visitor in the inmate's approved visitation list to be granted a visit.

You should write a letter to your loved one to determine whether you are part of their visitor's list. The IDOC staff cannot help you decide whether or not you are on the list once you call the facility. If you're visiting your loved one for the second time, you must complete a Prospective Visitor's Interview (PVI) form, referred to as the DOC 0148. You can complete and bring the form during your first visit.

Required Identification

Every adult must provide a photo ID and verification of their date of birth. Ensure that you will bring two forms of the ID with you, one with the current state-issued photo identification.

How to Connect With a Western Illinois Correctional Center Inmate Through Video Visits

The Illinois Department of Correction has partnered with the Global Tel Link (GTL) to provide video visitation services to the Western Illinois Correctional Center.

You must register with GTL to be eligible for their service. You must complete a Prospective Visitor Interview Form and the GTL form to complete the registration process. Ensure that you fill in all the required information to avoid unnecessary delays.

All video visitors should be on the inmate's approved visitors list to be granted a video visit. The visitation hours are as follows:

  • 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and 2:00 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. from Sunday to Saturday
  • You should log on to the GTL for 15 minutes before the scheduled start time

To accommodate an offender, the facility has established the following rules:

  • An inmate will receive only one video visit each day
  • Inmates should maintain a maximum of three visitors every video visit
  •  An inmate should receive only two video visits every week, which is counted against their allotted timeline
  • You should schedule the visits at least 30 days in advance
  • Only scheduled visitors should appear in the video

Meeting all these methods to connect with a loved one seems overwhelming. From the requirement of expecting a call from the inmate rather than calling them yourself to scheduling a video visit, there are chances of failing to connect with your loved one as expected. DoNotPay offers the following simple process to connect with your loved ones with ease.
