Visitation Rules & Hours

All inmate visits are conducted through video visitation, whether on-site or off-site.

Using this technology drastically reduces inmate movement, increases the available hours for visitation, and increases the number of visits each inmate may have. It also allows family and friends who don’t live in the area to visit with inmates.


On-site visitation – Monday – Friday – 8:00 a.m. – 4:45 p.m.

Off-site visitation – Monday – Sunday – 8:00 a.m. 9:30 p.m.

Excluding mealtimes and counts. Actual available inmate visitation times are dependent on where the inmate is housed.
