Public Visitation:

Attorney Visits:

Requests for general in-person legal visits between attorneys and Incarcerated Individuals must be made to the facility where the Incarcerated Individuals is housed. Attorney/Incarcerated Individuals visit requests are being scheduled and will continue as long as it is safe to do so on a facility-by-facility basis. Based on the conditions of each facility, they are subject to being postponed or rescheduled. A reliable alternative to an in-person attorney/Incarcerated Individuals visit is to schedule a confidential phone call. Incarcerated Individuals must have the attorney's phone number added to their approved telephone list. All calls are to be 'collect calls' unless the Incarcerated Individuals utilizes prepaid minutes.

About Madison Correctional Facility:

Madison Correctional Facility is in southeastern Indiana, overlooking the Ohio River to the south and bordered by Clifty Falls State Park on the west. The facility started as an adult male level one work camp in 1989. In 2004, with an increase in incarcerated adult females statewide, the purpose of the facility was changed to house minimum security adult females. Today, Madison Correctional Facility can house more than 900 women in dorm housing, which includes a 72-bed work release program. Incarcerated individuals are involved in programming and work various jobs, both on the grounds and off. The goal is that through treatment and rehabilitation, the facility will help prepare incarcerated women to re-enter their community with more skills and confidence than when they arrived
