VISITATION - June 4, 2020 For the health and safety of our staff and inmates, the suspension of visitation continues at this time. The Department of Corrections understands the importance of maintaining contact with loved ones and friends. We are monitoring the COVID-19 outbreak to determine the safe and appropriate time to reinstate visitation. We will continue to update the public through the Department’s website and social media.

Each Halloween, the Minden District requires all registered sex offenders on supervision to report to the Minden District Office from 5:00 to 8:30 p.m. During the period of time they are here, they will all sign new updated contracts. Each offender will produce his/her driver’s license and state ID card that indicates he/she is a sex offender. Additionally all new laws pertaining to sex offenses that have taken effect since the previous year will be addressed with each offender.
Minden District, in conjunction with Camp Minden, provides training to at risk teens at the Youth Challenge Program. The training is primarily a prevention program to help reduce and prevent sexual offenses. It is an informative one and half hour “shock and awe” campaign to at risk teens. MID has three agents and a supervisor involved in the program and, to date, they have educated approximately 1,200 teens from across the state.
