Inmate Responsibilities
Inmates are responsible for scheduling their visits. We will allow visits on a 1st come, 1st serve basis. Inmates will not be called out of programs for visits.

Each inmate may place 5 names on his/her visiting list. The inmate may request a change to his list in writing to the Jail Commander or his/her designee after 90 days. Inmates must fill out the visiting forms completely or the visitor will not be allowed to visit. Inmates who have difficulty completing the form may request help from the officer providing the form. However; it is the inmate's responsibility to obtain the necessary information for the form.


Visitor Requirements
A picture ID must be shown at the time of each visit. Visitors must be on the inmate's visiting list. No person under the age of 18 will be permitted in the lobby during visiting.

Any visitor that disrupts the visitation process in any manner may have their visiting rights revoked, and may result in the inmate's visiting rights being suspended as well. Any inmate that disrupts visiting will have his/her visitation rights revoked. Visiting rights may only be reinstated after a request is sent in writing to the Jail Commander or his/her designee. Disruptions include, but not limited to:
  • Bringing children in the building during visiting
  • Inappropriate clothing
  • Loud talking or yelling
  • More than 1 person visiting
  • Obscene gestures or profanity
Visiting rights may be revoked at the discretion of the Shift Supervisor.
