Visiting an Inmate in Colorado

The department encourages family and friends who have positive influences and serve as good role models to communicate and visit with the inmate. This can help the inmate reintegrate with society when they are released.

Visiting Hours: Thursday - Monday 9:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.

Crowley's visitation schedule - Odd/Even numbers change each quarter on the 1st Friday of the following quarter:

Thursday visits are open to all approved visitors regardless of DOC number

Hours (daily) are 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM; visitors must be signed in before1:15 PM.  The facility will begin denying access at 1:30 PM. No sandals or open toe shoes will be allowed.

All inmates who are expecting to have family and friends present at parole board hearings will need to submit the names to their case manager two weeks in advance of their expected parole hearing date.  If these visitors are not already cleared and on an active visiting list, they will need to have cearance done by CDOC.  In this case, the case manager will need to be given the full name, date of birth and drivers license number so that an accurate background check can be completed by CDOC.  If family/visitors show up who have not been cleared and approved, then those people will have to wait until CDOC can do an NCIC/CCIC clearance on them.  When cleared, they can be allowed to enter the facility.

Review the DOC Visiting Rules here before visiting an inmate.


If you are planning on just visiting once or visitors who visit less then twice a year should use the special visitation application.

If you are bringing someone to visitation who is under 18, you will need an authorization for a minor.

No communication

I have written over ten times to my son in this facility and I have not heard anything from him. Is he in there> I flew all the way from California to see him, and they wouldn't let me in. I sent the form in early as required and they still din't let me in. I am afraid that my son is in troulbe there. How can I reach him. I have left dozens of messages and so had my son's grandparents and we still don't get any calls back or anything. We are all so worried and can't afford to hire an attorney. Please help us.
