Visiting an inmate is now done locally (in the video visitation room, located in the main lobby) or remotely (on an internet device with a camera).
To create a new account, place money on an inmate's telephone/visitation account, send messages, share photos or schedule video visits, go to www.gettingout.com
. Money is no longer taken by Sheriff's Office staff.
If scheduling a local visit (in the video visitation room, located in the main lobby):
the video visitation is open Monday – Friday from 7:50am-4:00pm; excluding major holidays (Holiday Closure Dates
). Visits can be scheduled beginning at 8:00am, with the last one at 4:00pm. If you have questions and need help with scheduling a visit, call 866-516-0115.
These rules apply to all persons who are using the video visitation system to visit friends or family in the jail. Failure to comply with these rules may result in the termination of your visit, and/or restriction of future visitation privileges.
NOTE: Sheriff’s Office staff are unable to pass messages to inmates, including informing them that a visit has been scheduled, or that money has been deposited in their account. Inmates are notified via the kiosk in their housing units of such activities. If a member of the public wishes to get a message to an inmate, they may do so using the kiosk in the video visitation room or by sending an inmate a post card (post cards can be purchased at the post office). There will be no exceptions to this policy.
