As of March 18, 2020, registration and visitation rules have changed to protect inmates at Las Colinas Detention and Reentry Facility (LCDRF) - San Diego Co. and their loved ones during the COVID-19 outbreak. At this time, there are no in-person visits for family and friends due to the COVID-19 situation. Video visitation is available; details can be found below or call 619-402-1312.
All visits are non-contact and conducted through a glass partition. This facility may also have a video visitation option, please call 619-402-1312 for more information and updates to the current rules and regulations.
Inmates are allowed 2 visitors per day
The online visit reservation system will be available 24 hours per day Wednesday through Monday (unavailable on Tuesday).
Due to the overwhelming success of the online reservation option, telephone visit reservation hours will only be accepted from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., Tuesday through Sunday. Inmates are allowed two 30 minute social visits per week. The visit week begins on Sunday and ends on Saturday. Inmates are only allowed one visit per day. Inmate workers are allowed additional visits dependent on their work schedule.
The Las Colinas Detention & Reentry Facility now offers on-site video visitation for all its housing units. Video visitation is an option for the lower security housing units and is the only option for higher security housing. With video visitation, the visitor uses a real-time video teleconferencing terminal adjacent to the public lobby to visit with the inmate who will be using a similar device in the housing unit. Video visits are 30 minutes in length.
Social visits are normally non-contact, conducted through a visit window using telephone handsets. Contact visits are allowed at Las Colinas Detention & Reentry Facility. Each facility has a visit schedule that specifies the days and times available for inmate social visits and are subject to change without notice. Refer to a specific facility’s visit schedule by selecting the facility below:

Additional visitors can only be added at the time of arrival. Visits will not be scheduled if the inmate has been previously scheduled for court on the same date.
When preparing to schedule a visit, please have the following information ready for all visitors.
While we attempt to honor all visit reservations, visits may be changed or cancelled without notice. Also, changes in the inmate’s housing assignment may automatically cancel a scheduled visit.
General Rules for Visiting Inmates
All visitors must check in together one hour before the scheduled visit and are required to present valid photo identification. If a visitor is late, the visit may be cancelled.
Walk-in visitors will be accepted, on a space available basis, as long as the visitors check in one hour before the visit time. Due to security reasons, East Mesa Reentry Facility and Facility 8 Detention Facility do not accept walk-in visitors.
Cancellations must be made in person at any of the Sheriff’s detention facilities with valid photo identification.
Inmates have the right to refuse visits at any time.
There is no expectation of privacy in a jail facility. Social visits may be monitored or recorded.
Visitors that have been incarcerated within the past 90 days shall not be permitted to visit without Watch Commander consent.
If you have previously been convicted of a felony and served time in state prison, you may not enter the grounds of a county jail without the permission of the Facility Commander. That permission should be obtained in writing before attempting to schedule a visit. Entry to the facility grounds without such permission is a felony (California Penal Code §4571).

Rules for Facility 8
As of April 9, 2015, Facility 8 has been offering video social visitation for all of its housing units.

Fees apply for home-video visitation. Video visits are 30 minutes in length.
Occasionally, inmates may be admitted to hospitals for medical treatment. Special visits may be allowed for hospitalized inmates who are considered to be in grave condition. These special visits require the approval of the watch commander. Persons wishing to visit a hospitalized inmate must check at the appropriate facility and register for the visit. The watch commander will be consulted concerning the inmate’s suitability to have visitors. If the visit is approved, a visit pass will be issued, which can be taken to the hospital and presented to the assigned Deputy or Guard.
