Visitation : Alamance County Jail near Burlington NC

Visitation Procedures

To have visitors, you have to give each visitor’s name to the jail before anyone can visit them. Your visitor’s names will be put into a Visiting log as an approved visitor. Every visitor has to provide a photo ID when visiting. Anyone that arrives for visitation late or any visitors that are not approved to visit will not be allowed to visit the inmate.
Visitation procedures change often, so it would be wise to check the official site before you try to visit an inmate.
