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.

  • 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.
