Corrections Department Changes Inmate Visitor Policy

(Richmond)- The Virginia Department of Corrections is changing its inmate visitor policy. Inmates will only be allowed to be visited by up to ten people beginning in 2020 in an effort to curb contraband smuggling. There is currently no limit, and the inmates can change their visitor list at any time. They now have until the beginning of October to submit a list with up to ten names. Corrections officials will allow that list to be changed twice a year.
