Public Visitation:

Please refer to IDOC visitation page to find the most current information regarding visits.

Attorney Visits:

Requests for general in-person legal visits between attorneys and offenders must be made to the facility where the offender is housed. Attorney/offender 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 conditions in each facility, they are subject to being postponed or rescheduled. A reliable alternative to an in-person attorney/offender visit is to schedule a confidential phone call. The offender must have the attorney's phone number added to their approved telephone list. All calls are 'collect' unless the offender utilizes prepaid minutes.

Further Updates on Public Visitation and Attorney Visits:

As visits resume at Wabash Valley Correctional Facility, we are doing all we can to ensure the safety of visitors, staff, and offenders.  In doing so, we felt the need to add the additional restrictions noted below.  All normal visitation requirements are still in place and must be adhered to.

  • The masks provided by the facility are the only masks authorized during visits.
  • Visitors are being asked to arrive 30 minutes prior to their scheduled time to visit to ensure they are processed and can have their full one-hour visit.
  • Visitors are allowed to purchase 3 items provided they do not exceed $20.00.

Please return to this site for updates about restrictions for public and volunteer staff visitation, as well as any extension of the ending date for attorney / offender in-person visitation.  Once restrictions are lifted the regular ‘Visiting Guidelines’ listed below will again be in effect.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: Please remember to always contact the facility before coming to visit for the latest visit updates.
