Visitation Guidelines

  • Juveniles (under 17 years of age) that are related to the inmate may visit only if accompanied by their parent or legal guardian. The parent, legal guardian accompanying the juvenile must have a current and valid photo identification card and may be required to show proof of guardianship of the juvenile. If a juvenile visitor not related to the inmate wishes to visit, their parent or legal guardian must accompany them. Proof of emancipation must be provided, if applicable.
  • Visitors will be required to check in at Master Control and be signed in for visitation at least thirty minutes prior to the scheduled visiting time.
  • During regular visitation there is no right of privacy. Your visitation period is monitored and recorded.
  • Contact visits are normally limited to privileged (attorney, law enforcement, prosecutors, etc.) and professional visitors (clergy, psychologist, medical, etc.) or others as designated and approved by the Detention Commander or designee. During a contact visit, no person or device will normally monitor, record, or in any other manner interfere with the confidentiality of the visit, except for viewing through windows or openings to ensure the safety of the visitor and inmate.
  • Privileged visitors may be allowed to visit inmates at times other than regular visiting hours. Privileged visits may be denied when preparing inmates for court, serving meals and during lockdown or emergency situations. Privileged visitors who want to bring or send additional individuals into the facility to visit inmates, such as investigators, may do this by obtaining a court order or gaining prior approval from the Division Commander.
  • Inmates planning a visit from visitors coming from distances over 150 miles away may request an extended visit or an unscheduled visit. The Division Commander must approve all such visits in advance. When these visits are approved, the inmate is notified so the visit can be scheduled on the designated date.
