The intent of the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation’s (CDCR) Visiting Program is to develop and maintain healthy family and community relationships.

The CDCR oversees the incarceration of both adult and juvenile offenders, as well as providing parolee services to adult and juvenile offenders.

This page is intended to assist the general public in locating, contacting, visiting, and corresponding with inmates and juveniles who are in CDCR institutions.

Visiting in CDCR facilities must be conducted in a manner in keeping with the need to maintain order, the safety of persons, the security of the facility, and the requirements of institutional activities and operations. Failure to comply with the established regulations and policies may result in a warning or termination, suspension, or revocation of visiting privileges. The CDCR Inmate Visiting Guidelines help ensure the safety and security of staff, visitors, and inmates.
