Offender Visitation

Forms of Identification

Visitors 18 years of age and older must have a pictured and signed identification (ID). One of the following is required:

  • State driver license
  • State Department of Public Safety (DPS) ID card
  • Armed Forces ID card
  • Passport
  • ID card issued by the United States Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Citizenship & Immigration Services (USCIS); for instance, Visa Border Crossing ID Card (USA B1/B2 Visa BCC)

At least one of the identification documents used to determine identity must contain a current physical address. (Exceptions will be made for victims of family violence who have been certified by the attorney general to have address protection.)

Note: If the visitor’s ID is questionable or not acceptable, further verification shall be required, for example, birth certificate, pictured credit card or other official ID. Children 17 years of age and younger may be required to provide an ID, for example, birth certificate, DPS ID or student ID, if the child’s age is questionable due to physical maturity of the child. Student ID shall be used only for children 17 years old and younger.
