New inmate visitation rules begin after January 1st. The Virginia Department of Corrections says they’re aimed at improving security, consistency and the flow of visitors. Anybody approved to visit this year will not have to reapply until 2016. Applications will now be processed at department headquarters in Richmond rather than at each individual jail, and they can be made online or in writing. Changes also include limiting visits to only one inmate unless the inmates are immediate family members.
