Clarification to IDOC Standard Operating Procedure 604.02.01.001 (Visiting Rules For Inmates and Visitors): No paper money allowed during prison visiting sessions

People visiting their incarcerated loved ones often bring money with them to purchase items from vending machines during scheduled visiting sessions.  

Visitors are welcome to do so, but paper money is not allowed. You’ll be asked to return the paper money to your vehicle if you bring it into the facility with you. 

Visitors can bring coins in clear plastic bags or use debit cards and credit cards to make vending machine purchases.
