Visitation, Telephone Calls & Correspondence
As part of the Georgia Department of Juvenile Justice’s (DJJ) Coronavirus prevention efforts, visitation at all secure facilities statewide will be suspended for parents and guardians effective immediately through April 13, 2020. At this time there are no known cases of the Coronavirus in any of our facilities.
Parents or family members with questions about visitation should contact the secure facility where their child is located.
Parents and guardians may contact the facility where your child is staying for visitation days and hours. Contraband cannot be brought into the facility (i.e., alcohol, cigarettes, money, gum, snacks, drugs, weapons). Snack machines are available at the facility. You may purchase snacks for your child, but they must be consumed during your visit. Generally, your child is allowed an intake phone call upon his or her arrival at the RYDC and prior to his/her detention hearing. After the first call, he/she will be allowed to make one free call each week. Contact your child’s counselor for call dates and times. Your child may write as many postcards as he/she wishes during designated times. However, unless you provide the RYDC with extra postage stamps, the child will only be provided postage for two postcards per week.
