Inmates committed to the York County Prison must complete a visitors list identifying potential visitors. Only listed visitors will be accepted for visitation. It may take up to twenty-four (24) hours for the list to be processed. Once approved, the visitor must provide valid photo identification at the time of visit. Photo identification can be a driver license, passport, military, permanent resident, state and school ID cards. The prison administration reserves the right to deny, suspend or ban visitors from visiting or prison property. Visits may be restricted based on security concerns including requests from outside law enforcement agencies, courts and or rule violations.
Former inmates/detainees may not visit for six (6) months after their release.
