New Jersey Revised Statutes § 30:4-127 - Visitation Of Certain Institutions; Application To Superior Court Judge.

30:4-127 Visitation of certain institutions; application to Superior Court judge.

30:4-127. a. An assignment judge of the Superior Court may grant, on a written application to him of a majority of the board of managers of the State Charities Aid Association of New Jersey, to such person as may be named in such application an order enabling such person to visit, inspect and examine, on behalf of such association, any of the county, town, township or city prisons, jails, penitentiaries, and reformatories, located within any of the counties of which he is the assignment judge. Every such order shall specify the institutions to be visited, inspected and examined, and the name of the person by whom the visitation, inspection and examination are to be made, and shall be in force for one year from the date on which it shall have been granted, unless sooner revoked.

b.A person convicted of a crime or offense in this State, or another state or jurisdiction, who has completed his sentence, and who seeks to visit persons incarcerated in a State correction facility for motivational purposes, but has been denied access to that facility, may apply to the Superior Court for an order granting access to that, or any other, State correctional facility. A copy of the written application shall be served on the Commissioner of Corrections at the same time it is filed with the court. A judge of the Superior Court may grant the relief requested in the application and issue an order granting the applicant access to the State correctional facility, or facilities, cited in the application; provided, the applicant successfully establishes that the visits are for motivational purposes and are likely to be beneficial to the rehabilitation of certain inmates incarcerated in that facility, or facilities, as the case may be, and if the commissioner provides no valid objections to the court identifying safety or security concerns associated with the applicant being granted access to a particular facility, or facilities.
