Important Visiting Changes!

Visits will now only be held on weekends.


Starting the first week of June visits will only be held on Saturdays and Sundays. The first day of visitations for that week will be Saturday June 6th. The visit day and time will still depend on which Unit the inmate is housed in. There will no longer be the optional 20 or 40 minute visit; instead each inmate will get a straight 30 minutes of visiting time.

An inmate’s visitors will now need to get pre-registered. This is a one time registration for the inmate’s current incarceration. Any following incarcerations will require that individual to have their visitors pre-register again. Inmates will need to instruct their potential visitors to come to the Sheriff’s Office prior to their scheduled visiting day to get pre-registered. There will be a form that each potential visitor will have to fill out. Any potential visitor that has not pre-registered prior to the visiting day will not be allowed to visit during that week’s visitation. Each inmate will be allowed to have up to 5 pre-registered visitors. There will be a maximum of 2 adults and 2 children allowed in to visit at any one time.
