Visiting an Inmate at Mohawk Correctional Facility

The New York department of correction encourages friends and family members of inmates who demonstrate a positive influence to communicate and visit with an inmate. This can help the inmate in the rehabilitation process, and eventually with his or her reintegration back into society.

Visiting days and times vary from facility to facility.  They are influenced by the security level and population concerns. At many facilities, you may only visit on certain days of the week, for example, by last name (A-L) (M-Z) or by the inmate’s DIN. As a general rule, maximum security facilities have visiting on a daily basis.
Medium and minimum security facilities have visiting on weekends and holidays.
Work Release facilities have visiting for inmates in restriction units only.
Shock Incarceration inmates have visiting every other weekend.

You should always contact the facility for the specific visiting schedule prior to visiting.

Generally visitation begins at 7:30 am and ends at 3:00 pm, but you will not be admitted to visitation if you arrive 2:30pm or later. Some may even include evening hours. Many visiting rooms become very crowded and often visitors are required to end visitation early as there are others waiting to get in.

Contact the facility prior to your initial visit to determine the visiting policy.

Visiting Hours are as follows:
Saturday and Sunday 8:30am - 3:00pm

serving an inmate

I have paper that need to be served to an inmate is it possible for me to fax them instead of mailing them? 

in response to your question

You have to get in contact with the warden first and then he will give you a number to fax over information but i also think he has to go to social worker as well.

re: Serving papers to an inmate

You'll have to contact the institution directly with this question, but I suspect no they cannot be faxed.  I know you can serve papers during visitation but faxing them is a whole different thing because then someone at the institution needs to serve the paperwork.  Let us know what happens.
