All of that information is correct. One thing I would like to add is that they are srtict on their dress code. You cannot wear anything that is really tight or clingy. I also would suggest that you wear no perfume because their machine is very sensitive and lots of times won't work properly. Usually the visiting staff is very nice and accomodating but you always have your exceptions. The visiting on Thursday is 9:00 am and not a minute earlier. What they have posted on the MDOC website is not correct. If you visit someone behind the glass I suggest you get there about 8:45 am on the weekends because you are still visiting when they have their count. That ususally ends up giving you a visit of over 2 hours. Treat the staff with respect and they will give it back.

How will you know if you will be able to have a contact visit or not? My boyfriend just got moved to SECC two days ago so I dont even have an application in yet. Do they even have contact visits there? Also, if he has me listed as his significant other, can I visit on weekends as well or is it still only for his mom and dad?

thanks

Yes, they have contact visits just like any other facility. And they also have food visits. He will be able to tell you what kind visits you can have. And it usually takes about 3-4 weeks to get approved. If you are already on his list you do not have to be approved again. That follows the person wherever they go. And a S/O is treated the same as immediate family. You can visit any time the doors are open as long as the inmate is eligible for them. If you have visited somewhere before nothing is different down there. Check the DOC website for visiting regulations http://www.doc.missouri.gov/index.htm They may try to tell you that SECC prisoners who are in Ad Seg can't have but 2 visits a month but the web site says 8. You can call the facility and seek to the person in charge of visiting. And if you live very far from there I would check each time before you make the trip to make sure your guy can have visits that day or weekend. Generally they are nice down there but you may run into someone who isn't. Be nice and let it roll off you.

I arrived on time at SECC this morning. Got in the door only to be told I had to go back out and take my hoodie off. I intended to anyway I only wore their to keep warm and was going to put it in the locker. I had to go back out in the cold to take it off. No problem. Go back in walk through the detector it went off. My belt (which I wear on every visit just happen to go off this time..weird). Finally get in check my containers all food is good.

Officer does the test strip swipe. Containers test positive for drugs. I said I just bought them last night and washed them. I have never done drugs a day in my life. The guard says I hear stories all the time its your tell it how you want. So he does it a second time. Same thing! By this time I am getting furious because I do not know what is going on. I have been here a hundred times never an issue.

I ask the guard if I can go buy new containers or wipe them down with sanitize wipes. He says no. Okay fine then I am just going to stand in the corner and wait to see what happens.

They offer me a no contact visit with my brother. Tears me up because the one thing I want to do is hug my brother because I have to tell him our grandmother is in the hospital dying! I started crying..the nicest lady came over to me gave me the biggest hug and prayed with me. She was so caring. I wish I would have gotten her name. Maybe I will see her again and can thank her again!

It broke my heart to not be able to feed my brother his fav foods today and give him a hug. But I did get to see him so that is still good!

I just don't understand what happen. One lady did mention if I had put gas in my car or anything like that it could test positive. I did put gas in my car on the way their and the container that was testing is the one on the top of the pile.

Can someone please bring light as to what happen? I just do not understand!
