The Strafford County Department of Corrections is committed to the safety and well-being of those who are both detained and who work here.
Due to the continued concerns related to the COVID-19 Pandemic, the Strafford County Department of Corrections shall continue the requirement of masks. Upon entry to the facility, the mask protocol still remains in effect. Screening shall continue as well in accordance with Centers for Disease Control recommendations. The masks are a requirement to have a visit with the individual or individuals you are here to visit. Masks are also a requirement for those in custody that come to meet with you. In the event that either party chooses to not participate in this mandate, the visit is subject to termination. We ask for your assistance in ensuring that all parties are wearing masks at all times.
Strafford County DOC also provides non-contact visits that allow privileged communication between an attorney and their client. In addition, SCDOC offers communication via ZOOM for Attorneys and their clients. For more information on this, please contact the Classification Department for more information.
Thank you for your cooperation as we navigate this National health emergency.
