ADCRR Begins Phased Reopening With In-Person Visits

May 27, 2021

(PHOENIX)— The Arizona Department of Corrections, Rehabilitation and Reentry (ADCRR) is resuming in-person visitation and launching a phased reopening of inmate work programs.

In-person visitations will resume June 19, 2021. Visits will be limited to two adult visitors and one minor child, or three people. The phased reopening also recommences in-person attorney visits, volunteer service activities and the Department’s Second Chance Centers.  

The resumption of work programs is scheduled to begin the week of June 6, which initiates a phased rollout of work programs over the next two months. All returning inmate crews will be monitored closely in collaboration with Centurion, ADCRR’s contracted medical vendor.  

“We recognize the significant challenges and sacrifices that everyone has experienced over the past year and I want to particularly thank Governor Doug Ducey and Dr. Cara Christ, Director of the Arizona Department of Health Services (ADHS), for their continued support and timely resources,” said ADCRR Director David Shinn. “We appreciate everyone’s patience as we reopen in phases and continue to follow state and CDC guidelines for congregate care settings to protect those in our custody.”
