MRJC Visitation Advisory


The MRJC is currently expanding visiting capability with the installation of video visitation stations.  During this project the number of public visiting booths will be reduced.  As a result, please anticipate longer wait times and shorter visits.  We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and appreciate your patience and understanding.

Regional Justice Center Visitation Schedule

What are the guidelines for visiting an inmate?

  • Visitors under 18 years of age must be accompanied by parent or legal guardian (proof of legal guardianship is required). The only time children age 7 and under may visit is; Monday – Friday, 12 – 1 p.m.; and 4:30 – 5:30 p.m., and all day Saturday and Sunday. This is during your inmates visiting days and times ONLY, No Exceptions.

  • Cell phones, food, drinks, purses, pocket-knives, weapons, diaper bags, and all personal items, are NOT allowed in the visiting booths. Lockers are available for storing all personal items.
  • Clothing should be appropriate and modest. NO mini-skirts, shorts, low-cut or revealing neckline shirts, bare midriff shirts, or see-through attire. Shoes must be worn at ALL times.

  • Visitors are encouraged to arrive early. Correction Technicians will process the last visit 15 minutes prior to the end of each visiting session.

  • Visitors are limited to one (1) visit per day, per inmate.

  • Jail Operations or a high volume of visitors may affect your visiting access.

  • Visiting times may be altered or cancelled without advance notice due to operational needs.

  • Visitors who travel over a 50 mile radius one way may qualify for a special visit outside the inmate’s normal visiting hours. ITR Sgt. will be notified for approval. The home address will be verified.

  • Visitors found falsifying information, using fraudulent/expired ID, obviously under the influence of alcohol/controlled substances, bringing contraband in, using profanity, exhibiting disruptive behavior, or violating any of the above rules or Department regulations will lose their visit and may result in further sanctions.

  • Visitors will be run for warrants and no-contact orders. You may be arrested if either of these is found. Visitors with any active warrants will be denied visitation regardless if the warrant is from a local jurisdiction or not.
