Visiting Hours:

Due to security concerns, inmates participating in the In-Custody Work Crews will be limited to 2 video visiting monitor locations per half hour.

Visiting hours are based on the inmate's location in the jail. Inmates are responsible for informing visitors of their location.  Refer to the Jail Roster for inmate location.  Inmate workers may visit during any of the following times unless they are working.

Each Inmate is allotted a total of one hour of visiting per week.  Due to the large number of visitors, each visiting session will be limited to 30 minutes.  Adult visitors must have current picture ID.

Picture ID must include full name and date of birth. Visitors under the age of 18 must be accompanied by their parent or legal guardian, unless they are coming to visit a parent. Unaccompanied minors visiting their parent must present a copy of their birth certificate.

Visiting will not be allowed between individuals when it is known that a current no-contact or restraining order exists.

Inmates and/or visitors who violate jail regulations during a visit may lose the privilege of visiting with family or friends.
