Clinton Annex Inmate Mail (Clinton Annex): P.O. Box 2002, Zip 12929
located next to Clinton Main in Dannemora. It is classified as a max B. The Annex can have 35 pounds of food package a month. They can have fresh meat but it must be fully cooked and hermatically sealed. The clothing has to be according to DOC guidelines as to style and colors. Processing of visitors is relatively quick. Clinton Annex: On the weekends you must go to the right hand side of the building and climb the stairs for processing. Parking is close to the building. Processing was different for me especially seeing 2 co's count and verify the various clothing or food that I brought up. On the desk is a scale that they weigh the food packages with. You must sign an inventory package sheet of all the items you bring to the facility for your loved on.
There are 3 visiting rooms, one downstairs and 2 upstairs. In the rear visiting room - there is another room that is used for photographs. The rooms are not very large and tables are very close to one another. Inmates could sit at any chair at the table they desired which was a change from Midstate-Oneida, and Mohawk! Vending machines are in the hall on the first floor. The CO's make an announcement that it is time for bus visitors to depart. Once those individuals have left the visiting rooms -they will put all visitors from both rooms into one visiting room. Inmates do not stand up against the wall once their visits are over to return to their dorms- they must sit in their assigned tables.
THE CO'S IN BOTH FACILITIES CAN BE VERY STRICT WHEN IT COMES TO VISITING
