Visitation Information

Blount County TN Detention Facility - Visitation

Visitation Rules & Regulations

To participate in visitation, inmates and visitors must comply with the following rules procedures: An inmate must complete a Visitation Form given to him or her after cell assignment by Corrections Officers in the housing pods. Only those noted on an inmate's Visitation Form might be permitted to visit. Inmates must inform their visitor(s) that they must have a current, valid photo identification (such as a driver's license) in order to visit, and may be subject to search prior to entering or leaving the facility.

Visitors dressed in clothing determined to be inappropriate by staff will not be permitted to visit, or will have their visit curtailed and their name removed from the inmate's visitation list. On a visitor's first visit, they must complete a Visitor Information Form. The information on this form will be entered into the Sheriff's information system and checked to determine whether the visitor may have any outstanding warrants. Based on the information provided in this form, and the results of any checks made, the visitor may be denied future visitation, or, if checks indicate any outstanding warrants, may be arrested prior to their departure from the facility. Visitors under the age of 18 do not need to be listed on an approved visitation list, but must be accompanied by a parent or guardian who is on the approved list.

Visitation is limited to one visit per week of one-hour duration. Requests for exceptions and special requests must be forwarded through a Corrections Officer to a Shift Supervisor for approval. A Shift Supervisor may extend visits by reason of distance traveled, past infrequent visits, or other compelling reasons. An inmate may not conduct a business while in confinement, therefore may not conduct business in the visitation area. Staff will permit an inmate to assign a power of attorney for the purpose of protecting legitimate business and personal interests while in custody.

All visits are non-contact and are subject to visual and auditory supervision by staff. An attorney visiting area is available in each housing pod to ensure privileged communications between inmates and their attorneys. Visiting hours are determined by cell assignment and are not negotiable. It is the inmate's responsibility to notify those on his or her visitation list of the times available for visiting.

Legal and other official visits may be scheduled at the Shift Supervisor's discretion.
