§ 1374. Visiting.
The facility administrator shall develop and implement written policies and procedures for visiting, that include provisions for special visits. Youth shall be allowed to receive visits by parents, guardians or persons standing in loco parentis, and children of youth. Other family members, such as grandparents and siblings, and supportive adults, may be allowed to visit with the approval of the facility administrator or designee, and in conjunction with the youth's case plan or in the best interest of the youth.
All visits shall occur at reasonable times, subject only to the limitations necessary to maintain order and security. Visitation shall not be denied solely based on the visitor's criminal history. The staff shall determine in each case, whether the visitor's criminal history represents a risk to the safety of youth or staff in the facility. Any denial of visitation or limitation on visitations shall be communicated to the youth, person denied and facility administrator. Opportunity for visitation shall be a minimum of two hours per week. Visits may be supervised, but conversations shall not be monitored unless there is a security or safety need.
Provisions for special visits, in addition to the two-hour minimum and/or outside of the regular visiting hours, shall be accommodated as necessary and within the discretion of the facility administrator or designee. Family therapy and professional visits shall be accommodated outside the provisions of this regulation. Facilities may provide visitation opportunities outside of normal visiting hours to accommodate special visits.
The facility may provide access to technology as an alternative, but not as a replacement, to in-person visiting.
