      Hiland Mountain Correctional Center (HMCC) :: Visiting Information, Q&A

      Visitation at Hiland Mountain Correctional Center (HMCC)

      Frequently asked questions about visiting at Hiland Mountain Correctional Center

      Q. I have already been approved for visitation at an Alaska facility. Do I need to apply for visitation at Hiland Mountain separately? What do I need to do?
      A. Yes, but the prisoner initiates the request for approvals for visitors to be added to their card. Even if you have been approved for visitation in Alaska, you will need a separate approval for visiting an inmate at Hiland Mountain. The prisoner will need your driver’s license number, the state issued from and your date of birth. If you are unwilling to give this information to the prisoner, the information can be relayed directly to the security sergeant for processing. The prisoner will not be given your information in this case.
