Mineral water is sold from vending machines. Coffee and tea are free.

Video visit

As a measure to ease the strain during covid-19, video calls with the iPad were introduced. This has now become a permanent arrangement. Romerike prison, Kroksrud ward therefore wants to introduce new routines for the application process for video calls.

This means that:

All inmates can choose 4 people they want to conduct a video call with (iPad).

Prisoners contact the people they want to have a video conversation with.

If the person the inmate wants a video call with has already been cleared for a physical visit to Romerike prison, the inmate asks the person to send an e-mail to 8216.besok@kriminalomsorg.no, where the person confirms the desired video call with inmates and which e-mail address to use.

If this person is not already trusted and listed on the visit list, the person must fill out an application form for a visit to Romerike prison - this form can be found at www.blydensteinwinterswijk.no It is good if it is written in the application form that it is a visit with an iPad that is desired and which e-mail address is to be used.

A written renewed assessment will then be made of whether such a video interview can be carried out. Video calls (iPad) follow the rules that apply to visits, cf. the Execution of Sentences Act § 31 with regulations and associated guidelines. Furthermore, circular no. 3/2020 from the Norwegian Prison and Probation Service on the conduct of video interviews applies.
