      Schafer, N. E. (Justice Center, University of Alaska Anchorage, 1989-06-09)
      Visiting rules and regulations from 71 long-term adult correctional facilities from 31 states were collected and reviewed. Most of the rules cover five distinct areas: visitor application, visitor processing, contraband, conduct, and dress codes. The rules are described and discussed in light of recent standards which stress the importance of encouraging visitors. Suggestions and recommendations are included.
