Video visitation is the system the Lee County Detention Center uses to conduct inmate visitation. The inmate, who is at a remote location, and you, the vistor, will sit at a video station consisting of a monitor, camera and receiver. Your visit will last 30 minutes and you will be given a two minute warning of the time your visit will end. Inmates are allowed one visit per week.
If you wish to see an inmate, you must arrive no later than 10 minutes before the start of the inmate’s visit. Anyone arriving after the visit has started will not be allowed to see the inmate unless the inmate is being seen by someone else and there is an available slot for you to sign in.
Visitors will not be allowed to “swap” visits with another person, meaning the first four people who sign in to see an inmate will be the only four allowed to see this inmate for that day. Visitors who have not signed up to see an inmate will not be allowed past the front desk. There will be no pocket books or purses allowed beyond the front desk. Food and drinks will not be permitted.
An inmate’s visitation time is determined by the area of the Detention Center he or she is being housed in at the time of the visit. The inmate is allowed only four visitors per visit, including children, and all visitors must have a picture ID to be allowed to visit. All children who do not have a picture ID or school ID must have a social security card or birth certificate present before entering. Visiting times will not be changed and no inmate will be allowed to have a visit on any other time except his/her regular visit time.
Contact visits between inmate and visitor are prohibited.
