Default 2017 Update on Visitation at Piedmont in North Carolina!

Hello ladies!! Hope everyone is doing well

My boyfriend is currently at Piedmont and the visitation is different. Honestly if you have never been to a visit at this facility...it is very difficult to find based on directions from Maps if your LO is in the min. security (small bldg..not the tall brown bldg) location. That building is located right by the DPS DOT area.

Anywhooo...whenever the scheduled visitation times are for you, PLEASE make sure you arrive about 15 min prior because they make you stand in a line to verify you are able to visit prior to the exact scheduled time. Then once verified you head to a small white house where you wait for your LO.

The chairs are facing one another, maybe with 10-12 pairs of chairs. Going back to the time you get there, the earlier the better seating choice the later you come the less selection.

You wait for the time then in comes our LOs. They show the CO their ID then they come to you and enjoy their presence. Sitting knee to knee its nice because you can reach out and hug them or touch their hands/arm/leg....

Once visit is over, the visitors leave the house and line up to leave. Our love ones are left in the visit room to line up and go back in.

That's visit. The time files and just would say to cherish every moment <3

Calls: Your LO can call you at any time really now. The phones are open from 6AM - 11PM.

Hope this has helped someone.

My boyfriend just got transferred to Piedmont.. idk if he's staying there or just processing there, but thank you for that information! Are they strict on the dress code? At Lumberton CI they wouldn't let me in because my jeans "looked" white, they were sky blue, so disappointing! Does your boyfriend like Piedmont? That phone time is awesome! At Lumberton the phones are off at 10

Hello!!! The dress code there is just stupid if you ask me lol so far I have learned that they won't allow:
1. No open toe shoes
2. No stilettos
3. Dresses/skirts can't be shorter than the kneecap
4. Not too much cleavage

As of late, the COs have been really annoying on if you are a solo visitor that you must sit in the front row of the visit room and ppl who have more than 1 visitor get to sit in the back of the room, which is stupid to me....

My bf is ok with Piedmont, with this heat he always says its hot in there and they have to have the fans on in order to be somewhat comfy. He has 90 days left so he is SUPER ready to go! Yeah that sucks with the phones at 10, but I definitely enjoy being able to talk to him if his call comes in before 11, til 11:15p.

Yeah I've heard that Piedmont is a transfer facility so if your bf doesn't tell you that he has a job assignment or taking a class, than he probably will be going somewhere else.

Oh wow! That's something I would miss. Lumberton was very lax as far as shoes. My boyfriend would tell me to come early so I could get a seat in the back.lol I am so jealous of you! It's a good jealous though, that's awesome! 90 days left would be better than winning the lottery right now.lol

As far as the jobs/school do you know if they have to apply for that or if it will be assigned. I believe he wants to move though. I just got my first letter from when he was moved and it wasn't good.. Thanks for all the information it's been so helpful!

Heyyy...sorry for the gap in response, but just that quick my bae got transferred to Lincolnton smh and I know he'll probably have to stay there the remainder of his time, but as far as schools he would have to talk to the programs coordinator to get himself signed up to a class. That's what my guy had to do in the beginning. Then whenever they finish the class they will either have to take on a work duty assignment (like kitchen,janitor work, etc.) in order to stick around ( may be diff for others but that's what happened in our case).

He did say that it's EXTREMELY hot in the dorms and I honk the only think they have is a small fan

Hope your guy gets adjusted well and finds a class.

Take care

That is actually the same as at Sampson CI where my boyfriend is. Thankfully his Mom told me also beforehand that no-wire bras and no open-toe shoes as well.
Thank you!
