pennington-jail-visitsEffective Immediately….Requests for visitation must now be made online. All requests for visitation times will still be handled on a first come, first served basis.

Note: – Only 3 adult visitors per visit.

You must arrive 15 minutes prior to the scheduled visitation time in order for the receptionist to properly check you in. Proper identification with both picture and date of birth will be required for visitors over the age of 18. Visitors under the age of 18 are allowed to visit only when accompanied by an adult.

If the visitor is late, time will be deducted for every minute past the scheduled visitation time.


Visitor Conduct:
Visitors are expected to be orderly and respectful to staff, inmates and other visitors. Please refrain from using obscene gestures and language. Lewd conduct is prohibited and may be prosecuted. Children must be under the control of an adult at all times. Failure to comply may result in loss of visitation for that day and removal from the facility.

All Visitors are Required to:

  • Provide picture ID with date of birth. Examples:
    • Drivers License from any state.
    • Valid Passport
    • Valid Federal, State or County issued ID and birth certificate if ID does not bear a date of birth
    • Military ID card with photo and date of birth
  • Clear the metal detector
  • Must conduct themselves in an orderly manner
  • No smoking, drinks or food allowed in the facility


Any violation of these requirements may result in denial of future visits. You may be arrested and prosecuted for any intentional damage to the jail.

It is illegal for any person to deliver, or have in possession with intent to deliver, to any inmate in a jail, items such as alcoholic beverages, controlled substances, hallucinogens, marijuana, prescription or non-prescription drugs, dangerous or deadly weapons. This may include depositing or concealing those items in or around the jail, or in any mode of transportation entering the grounds of any jail and its ancillary facilities used to house inmates. To do so is a felony. Violators will be arrested and prosecuted.

The inmate has the option to accept or refuse any visitor(s). If an inmate chooses to visit with someone other than you, you need to understand that this was the inmate’s choice, and if this does happen, it may be helpful for you and the inmate to arrange a specific day when the two of you will visit. This arrangement may be made through the mail service.
