Visiting

At Anoka County Non-Secure we understand that visitation is important to both the youth placed here as well as their family. Guidelines for visiting are in place to ensure the safety of both the youth and the staff.

Guidelines

  • All visitors must have photo identification.
  • All visitors must sign in on the visitors log.
  • All items brought into the Anoka County Non-Secure Program must be inspected and inventoried by staff prior to being given to the youth.
  • Probation officers, social workers, attorneys, c/o counselors may visit youth during reasonable hours. Prior notification is required.
  • If parent cannot visit during the listed times or is requesting a special visit, contact your child's primary counselor or the program coordinator 48 hours in advance (651-783-7531).
  • Visitors are limited to three per youth. Extra visitors are not allowed to remain on campus. We encourage families to make arrangements prior to visits to split times.
