Visitation rules

  • Visitation registration begins 30 minutes before start times.
  • We conduct visitation sessions on the half hour (ex. 6 p.m., 6:30 p.m., 7 p.m.).
  • We permit four visitors per session for each offender.
  • Visitors must be 16 years old or older.
  • An adult 18 years of age or older must accompany visitors under 16 years of age.
  • The same visitor may visit only twice per week.

  • Visitors and offenders who fail to follow Detention Center rules during visitation may lose visitation privileges.
  • Visitors and guests must have a photo ID or other form of identification.

The changes to the visitation policy are as follows:

1. Only people who are visiting inmates will be allowed in the lobby during visiting hours.

2. Visits will not be allowed on Monday or Friday.

3. Inmates who are trustees, or have been assigned to do community service work can have visitors on:

• Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday

4. Inmates classified as General Population (GP) & Pre-class inmates can have visitors on:

• Tuesday, Thursday Saturday and Sunday

5. Inmates with classifications other than those listed above will still have the same number of visitation days.

6. Each inmate will have to make a list of no more than 5 people who they would like to visit them. This list is called a visitation registry. Only the people an inmate puts on that list can visit them. Each person can only visit two times per week.

  • Inmates can change their visitor list every 90 days.
  • Kids 15 and younger do not have to be on a list, as long as they are brought to the visit by a parent or guardian who is on the list.

7. Everyone who visits the jail can be searched at any time. This includes "pat-down" searches. If you do not cooperate with a search you will lose your visitation privileges.

8. Some items and objects are not allowed in the jail or jail lobby. These items are considered contraband. Some of these items include, but are notlimited to the following

  • Cellular Phones
  • Any item that is illegal to have
  • Electronic Devices (other than medically necessary devices) • Purses or backpacks
  • Any weapon, including pocket knives. This is the law!

If jail officers find out you have contraband you could face criminal charges or lose your visiting privileges temporarily, or permanently. 9. As a reminder, the Division of Community Corrections is a non-smoking facility.

10. There is a new dress code for visitors to the jail. It is as follows:
