General Visitation Information

Leon County Detention Center - Visitation

The Leon County Detention Center encourages visitation for the inmates incarcerated here. We firmly believe that ties to family and friends are extremely important. However, there are rules that we need to make you aware of so your visiting privileges are not denied, terminated or suspended.

Visitation Hours

Visitation hours are Monday through Sunday from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Visitation will resume again after official count and shift change and run from 5:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. Lobby Doors are open 8:00 a.m. through 8:00 p.m.

Visitation Rules

Starting on April 16, 2017
Inmates housed in pods N, O, P and Unit Five (5), may have video visitation with children 15 years old and under. Visitors 15 years old and younger must be accompanied by their parent or legal (court appointed) guardian at all times while in the video visitation area. The parent or legal guardian is responsible for the child’s conduct at all times. A certified copy of the birth certificate with the parents’ names on it is required on the first visit. Court appointed guardians need to bring the original court ordered paperwork signed by a Judge, which names them as the child’s guardian or notarized authorization of custody of child on their first visit. Only one child per adult is allowed to visit at a time per visit. At no time will the child be left unattended by an adult. The child must be listed on the inmate’s visitation card in order to visit. Visitors under the age of 16 are prohibited in all other housing areas.

During the admission process, the Booking Unit will enter (at least one, and up to five) visitor names chosen by the inmate, into the system for visitation. Requests for visitor changes will only be made the last calendar day of the month. Visitation Forms will be provided for the Pods the evening of the last day of each month. Each Inmate is allowed five (5) Thirty (30) minutes visits not to exceed 2 ½ hours per week. Inmates who are being confined in special housing pods are restricted to two (2) visits per day. Inmate visit times will not exceed two and one half (2 1/2) hours per week.

Individuals that are authorized visitors are only allowed to visit the designated inmate and will only be allowed to visit one inmate per day. Split visits (visits of more than one inmate) shall not be allowed and are grounds to have ALL visitation privileges revoked. All visitors must be at least 16 years of age to visit.

For security reasons inmates admitted to a hospital will not be permitted visitors unless approved by the Sheriff, the Detention Center Director or his/her designee.

  • There are no split-time visits.
  • You must see the inmate you sign in to see during your visit.
  • You may not return later that day to see a different inmate.
  • Profanity will not be tolerated. Any violation can result in permanent suspension.
  • No communications with working inmates in and around the facility as you pass by the perimeter fence.
  • Children under the age of 16 are not allowed on the premises without someone who is at least 16 years of age with them.
  • You may not leave your children unattended anytime or with other visitors.

Visitors must comply with standard security measures (metal detection devices etc.) prior to being permitted to enter the secure area of the Detention Center. Failure to comply and/or successfully pass these measures will prohibit the visitor from entering the Detention Center.

Visitors with medical or religious claims, which prohibit exposure to metal detector devices must provide the medical documentation if applicable. A supervisor shall review all medical/religious claims.

All Detention Facilities visitors must be dressed appropriately. Failure to comply with the following guidelines will result in denial of admission to this facility and/or suspension of the visit.

Visitors are NOT to wear garments which contain metal including underwire bras, or other items e.g. jewelry, hairpins, etc., as they may cause the metal detector to alert, and/or prevent their admission into the facility. When able, metal items should be removed prior to entering the Detention Center. All items shall be subject to further search.
