Types of Visitation

If you have never visited a person in jail before you may be wondering what kind of visitation you will be allowed to have with them. You may have the idea that all visitation occurs through a plate glass window or that you will only be allowed to sit with them under the watchful eye of a guard. While these are two popular visitation methods there are others that you should be aware of.  With the expansion of the internet and video chatting capabilities video visitation has become one of the more common forms of visitation and allows you to visit with your loved one in a more comfortable environment. Video visitation operates the same what that popular video chat programs such as Skype and Facetime work, however these are not necessarily the services that you will be using if you video chat with an inmate.

One of the more famous types of visitation that you may be aware of is, non-contact or telephone visitation. This type of visitation is when you are behind a glass partition; the inmate and you both are given a telephone that you can communicate with each other with. Contact visitation is the most common form of visitation and is probably the best. With this type of visitation you are able to sit with an inmate usually around a small table and converse with them face-to-face. However, you generally are not allowed to touch the inmate other than a brief hello hug and goodbye are generally allowed.

How to Post Bail for Inmates at the Manhattan Detention Center

This is commonly the first concern that people have when they discover that a loved one is in jail. Many people want to know how much and where they can post bail and get their loved one back with them. If you want to post bail at the Manhattan Detention Complex you should be aware that currently you can post bail on one of several ways. You may post bail by using cash for the exact full amount (change is not given).  You may also post bail with a Cashier’s check for the exact amount of the bail.  You can also use bank or postal money orders but an individual money order must not exceed $1,000.

If you are paying bail through the Brooklyn Detention Complex, Vernon C. Bain Center, or the Manhattan Detention Complex you will make the check(s) or money order(s) payable to the facility (even if the inmate is not housed there).  If you are paying bail at a Rikers Island Facility you will make the payment payable to “Rikers Island Central Cashier” or “RICC”.  Whoever is posting the bail will also need to provide valid identification and know the New York State Identification Number (NYSID) of the inmate, not the book and case number.  You can find the NYSID number by doing an inmate search.
