This will prevent any inconvenience and allow for a smooth visiting experience.

It is possible for visits to be terminated and for visitors to be removed from an inmate’s Visitors List due to wrong conduct. If an individual is removed from an inmate’s Visitors List, they can submit a written appeal to the Director’s Review Committee (DRC) at PO Box 99, Huntsville, TX 77342. The request must be submitted within 14 days from the date of the written notice of removal from the unit.
