It is likely that the York Correctional Institution will deny visitation to anyone with a past felony conviction regardless of probation/parole status. Call 860-691-6700 prior to arriving for the specific jail guideline regarding your legal status.

If you are a co-defendant with the inmate in a pending case, your visit will be denied.

If you and the inmate are under a court order to have no contact with each other, your visit will be denied.

The York Correctional Institution reserves the right to deny any person the right to enter the jail it chooses and for any reason.



York Correctional Institution Visitation Application Process

York Correctional Institution requires all visitors to fill out an application prior to your visiting an inmate.

Carefully fill out the application. Incomplete paperwork is cause for denial.

Honesty, especially regarding past criminal convictions, probation etc., is important. These things will most likely show up on the background check – which if lied about on the application, will cause visits to be denied.

Call 860-691-6700 to ask specific questions about the application.

'At Home' Video Visitation

Many jails are implementing video visits. These visits are conducted via the Internet on computers, IPADS and Smart phones.

Video visits allow the visit to take place in the privacy of your own home. Some family members 'take their inmate with them' to church, the park, the doctor or anywhere else simply by signing in and bringing the device along.

Video visits save you from having to get your children ready, drive to the jail, wait in long lines and go through security checkpoints just to see the inmate.

Video visitation is slowly gaining favor with all jails in America as jail management realizes the financial savings and reduced security risks involved with remote visitation.
