Visiting Room Overcrowding Policy: In the event that space considerations require termination of visits, the following procedure will be followed:

1) Request voluntary termination from any visitor first.

2) Local visits will end second. A local visit is defined as any visitor within a 100-mile radius of Cape Vincent.

Visits will be terminated on a “first in, first out” basis as the third option. The time used to determine termination of the visit should be when an inmate and visitor actually start their visit. The Watch Commander should give special consideration to visitors who are from out of state. Adding tables to the existing floor plan poses security and overcrowding risks and is not permitted.
