Oct. 2, 2017 - PUBLIC ANNOUNCEMENT:

Public visitation of adult inmates may be LIMITED or CANCELED at KCCF in Seattle and the MRJC in Kent due to staffing shortages. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

Our goal is to keep these disruptions to visiting hours to a minimum, but changes and cancellations to visiting hours could occur at any time, based on staff availability.

In-person visitation at both the Seattle and Kent locations may be affected, and the video visitation kiosks in the reception area in Kent may be impacted. However, video visitation using your own computer, tablet, or smart phone will still be available.

We encourage you to use the video visitation option. The standard fee is $5 for the 25 minutes. Contact Securus Video Visitation at 1-877-578-3658 or https://securustech.net/en/web/securus/videovisitation to learn more and sign up for “Anywhere Video Visitation.”
