Visiting Policies

General Information

Inmates are allowed up to 3 visits per week. Upon arrival at the Worcester
County Jail & House of Corrections, incoming inmates are allowed to list up to 7 individuals who will be permitted to visit the inmate during their allotted
visiting hours. Individuals who are not listed as approved visitors in an inmate’s file will not be allowed to visit. If you are not on the list and wish to be
added, you must write the inmate a letter requesting that he adds you to his list of approved visitors.

Visitors to the facility are required to sign in and complete a “Request to Visit Inmate Form” upon their arrival. Visitors will be required to produce a current photo I.D. (driver’s license, passport, welfare card, etc.). Failure to produce a valid, acceptable I.D. may result in the denial of a visit.

Upon arrival, visitors must disclose any articles, other than clothing, they may be carrying such as personal effects or medication. Visitors must then successfully pass though the metal detectors. There are lockers provided by the facility for visitors to leave personal property in; otherwise personal property must be left outside the facility.

Only 2 visitors per inmate shall be allowed in the Visiting Room at one time.

INDIVIDUALS NOT PERMITTED TO VISIT:

  • Any person who has previously conducted visits with at least 3 other inmates during the prior 5 years
  • Any person who has been convicted of drug possession during the prior 10 years
  • Any person who is a co-defendant on a felony charge for which the inmate is being held
  • Any former inmate
  • Any person on parole or probation
  • Any person under indictment

Staff have the right to terminate a visit at anytime if an inmate or his visitor(s) violates any of the rules and regulations of the facility or if the behavior of an inmate and/or his visitor(s) is disruptive.
