ELIZABETH DETENTION CENTER VISITS

Every Tuesday and Wednesday

Each week, members of D.I.R.E. (Deportation and Emergency Response Equipo) go to visit Detainees at the Elizabeth Detention Center.

MALE DETAINEE VISITATION: Tuesdays departing at 5:45pm

FEMALE DETAINEE VISITATION: Wednesdays departing at 8pm
