Visitation Information

Visits are scheduled ahead of time by the inmate, and visitors names must appear on the inmate’s visitor list. Note that these are not contact visits – no physical contact is permitted.

Up to four people can visit an inmate during one session.(Infants and toddlers who are carried in do not count as official visitors.) You must plan your arrival at the jail so you have plenty of time to register for your visit. There should be a time-stamped slip in the lobby visitation tray 30 minutes prior to your scheduled visit.
