** Notice **
The request form that an inmate is required to turn in MUST include a complete name, address and date of birth for everyone they intend to visit.
Normal visitation is available on Saturday, Sunday and holidays from the hours of 8:00 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. On those days visitation is stopped for meals between the hours on 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.
- Inmates will be allowed only one (1) twenty (20) minute visit per day. Picture identification of the visitor will be required.
- The visitor must be eighteen (18) years old or older.
- If they are under eighteen (18) years of age and are an immediate family member, they may visit but must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.
- Inmates are required to fill out a visitor request form listing those who they wish to have visits with, which is turned into the detention center staff.
Any visitor who is intoxicated, disrespectful or acts unruly will be turned away and may be banned from further visits. Special visits or extended visits will not be allowed unless approval is granted by the Detention Captain or Sergeant.
Visits between inmates and attorneys will be reasonable and will not be limited as to frequency but are requested to be held during the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. The privilege of attorney-client communication shall always be respected by the detention staff.
The only things that may be bought to the detention center are a full book of stamps, medication and cash. Cash brought to the detention center must be deposited on the KIOSK in the public area and will be credited to the inmates’ commissary account. Money can also be added to an account using www.inmatecanteen.com(cannot be accessed immediately). A fee applies to any money added. When using any service, you will need the 5-digit permanent ID number of the inmate. The detention center will not accept personal checks. Please refer to the Inmate Accounting tab regarding cashier’s/bank checks, and money orders. We will still allow government checks and payroll checks.
All video visitations are approved by staff once you, as a friend or family member, request a visit and supplies the necessary identification. These requests are done through www.inmatecanteen.com. Friends and family can come to the lobby of the detention center for Lobby Video Visitation. Fr om the lobby, visitation is free and can be done 7 days a week except during lockdown hours. Lockdown hours may vary depending on the inmate housing. Visits are limited to one 30-minute call in a 12-hour period. Video visitation in the pod is charged to you, as the friend or family member, and is limited to 15-minutes. Those are not limited in number per day but must not take place during any lockdown hours. If there is a “no-contact order” in place, you will be violating a court order if either party engages in communication.
