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) If no volunteers, local visits will be asked to leave. A local visit is defined as any visitor within a one hundred (100) mile radius of Cape Vincent.

Special Considerations: Due to limited space in the Visitor Hospitality Center, visitors who arrive on the bus should be prepared to wait outdoors.  Visitors who arrive via personal transportation will park in a designated location and be called from their vehicle to be processed.
