Visiting for inmates is held in all facilities every day. Click this link to see the jail's visition schedule. However, visiting signups end at 9:15 pm, and no visits will be signed up after that time. The visiting week schedule is from Saturday through Friday. Each inmate is allowed two, half-hour visits per week. Inmates may place up to three names on their visiting list and inmates may change these names at any time. Anyone wishing to visit an inmate must have their name on the inmate's visiting list, and must be at least 18 years old. Children of an inmate who are under 18 do not need to be on the visiting list, but must be accompanied by an adult whose name is on the visiting list. All visitors must be able to present valid identification upon request by jail staff. Attorneys are required to remain with their inmate/client until officers return the inmate to their jail housing unit.
