Reach an Inmate at Wheeler Correctional Facility Hassle-Free

The Wheeler Correctional Facility (also called the Wheeler State Prison) is a men's-only prison that was opened in 1998. It's owned by CoreCivic, a private prison company that offers its inmates basic education courses and vocational training. It's located in Alamo, Georgia, and houses over 3,000 inmates in dormitory-style housing.

Wheeler Correctional Facility also offers inmate visitation, and prisoners are allowed to receive packages and letters. Since incoming mail is heavily monitored by the prison staff, some people may have difficulty reaching their family and friends inside the facility. DoNotPay can help you streamline the process and guarantee that your mail gets delivered.

How to Visit a Loved One at Wheeler Correctional Facility

You can visit an inmate on Saturday or Sunday. Visiting hours depend on where the prisoner is located in the facility: 

  • Saturday hours for units 100, 200, 400, and 900: 2:30 PM-7:30 PM
  • Saturday hours for units 500, 600, 700, and 800: 8:30 AM-1:30 PM
  • Sunday hours for units 100, 200, 400, and 900: 8:30 AM-1:30 PM
  • Sunday hours for units 500, 600, 700, and 800: 2:30 PM-7:30 PM

Each prisoner can only visit with two outside persons at once. The visitation process goes like this:

  1. Arrive at the facility at least 30 minutes before your scheduled visit.
  2. Remain in your vehicle until a staff member assigns it a visitor sticker number.
  3. You will be guided into the facility by a staff member. You must pass through a metal detector and receive a temperature check.
  4. You can then proceed to the visitation area and are permitted to stay for no more than two hours.

If you'd like to call an inmate, you can't use the prison's direct telephone number. Instead, you must set up a collect account with SecurusTech.

This will allow you to correspond with inmates via the public payphones provided at the facility. Calls are limited to 15 minutes, costing $1.95 for the entire session. You must also be on the prisoner's Call List: otherwise, you won't be able to contact an inmate.

Tips to Contact an Inmate Successfully on Your Own

Mailing a letter or package to a prisoner seems straightforward, but your letters/packages could be returned (or even destroyed) if you make a mistake on the address. If you make too many mistakes or accidentally send contraband items, you may have your mailing privileges revoked.

Visiting an inmate can be even more complicated. If you forget your government-issued ID or driver's license, you won't be permitted inside the facility. You can also be turned away for wearing certain articles of clothing, such as tank tops or anything with mesh material.
