Extra Information


Visitation is a privilege offered to all inmates. Visitation rules are available at the front window of the Sheriff's Office and are also posted here. Visitation times are on Saturday's for general population detainees and on Sunday's for Act 309 convicts. Visitation times are according to the detainee's housing area. It is the responsibility of the detainee to advise their visitors of the correct visitation time for his location.

An account is maintained by detention center personnel for each detainee. Deposits to a detainee's account may be made either by a USPS money order (accepted through the mail only), by using the kiosk in the forward lobby of the Criminal Justice Facility, or online at tigerdeposit.com. We no longer accept deposits for detainee accounts at the front window.
