Because Residential Services houses people with a variety of different issues, work release staff will deny visitors who are wearing sexually suggestive or inappropriate clothing. Staff will consider clothing as being sexually suggestive for the facility setting if it exposes flesh on the chest, back, upper thigh, or midsection. This includes short shorts, skirts, and dresses; dresses or skirts with high slits; tank tops, halter or tube tops, or other clothing with plunging or low-cut necklines. Visitors will be denied access to either facility if they wear tight-fitting or see-through clothing or sheer and loose-weave fabrics.
