Visitation Canceled at Reception and Medical Center Main Unit

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – The Florida Department of Corrections (FDC) has announced cancellation of weekend visitation at the Reception and Medical Center Main Unit for Saturday, March 24, and Sunday, March 25.

Michelle Glady, FDC Communications Director: “The secure operation of our correctional institutions is our chief priority. We have zero tolerance for inmate misconduct or the introduction of contraband into our secure facilities. We are taking proactive measures to ensure these institutions can continue normal operations and that the safety of staff and inmates can be upheld. We look forward to resuming normal visitation as quickly as possible.”

Cancelling visitation allows staff resources to be devoted to institutional searches, further eradicating contraband and ensuring the safety of inmates, staff and the public. Normal visitation is scheduled to resume next week.
