All persons, with the exception of Department of Corrections employees and Law Enforcement Officers, must pass through and clear the metal detector. In order to expedite the entrance process, visitors should avoid wearing clothing with metal attached (e.g., buckles, snaps, metal buttons, etc.).

Visitors with pacemakers or other medical implants, which will affect the metal detector, must mail verification from a doctor to the KMCI Security Director at least one week prior to their initial visit to allow time for entrance approval to be available at the Gatehouse. It is the visitors’ responsibility to clear the metal detector. You will be given three attempts to successfully pass the metal detector; staff must deny admission to those individuals who are not able to do so.
It is the visitors’ responsibility to inform the institution of a disability requiring special accommodations. This includes accommodation requests necessary to enter the institution and for the duration of the visit.
