Video Visitation This facility has transitioned inmate visitation to a new video-only system provided by Telmate. The new visitation schedule has expanded to allow more visits at more times. Visitors may now visit with inmates:
Onsite: From the Facility Lobby Visitors may visit using the Telmate video stations in the lobby.
Remote: From Anywhere Over the Web Remote (offsite) video visiting is available to friends, family, and others using a Web browser. Video visits may be conducted from any computer with high-speed Internet, a webcam, microphone, & speakers. There is no limit to the number of remote visits, and they may be scheduled on a first-come-first-serve basis.
Free Visits Each week, two (2) onsite, thirty (30) minute visits are provided to each inmate at no cost. The free visits are given to the first fifteen (15) onsite visitors to visit each inmate each week (Mon.- Sun). Free visits that are not used do not carry over to the next week.
Additional onsite visits are available for $.25 - .66 per minute, in thirty (30) minute blocks. There is no limit on the number of additional paid visits. Scheduling Visits To schedule a visit with an inmate, go to gettingout.com or use the Telmate kiosk in the facility lobby. You will need to login (or register if you haven’t already) before scheduling a visit. Available visiting times may vary throughout the facility, depending on classification and housing unit. Inmates are responsible for communicating their allowed visit times to prospective visitors. Inmates will not be permitted to visit during their lockdown time. Arrive Early: For all free visits, and all onsite visits, visitors must be present in the jail reception area 5-10 minutes before their scheduled visit. Inmates visit using a video station in their housing unit.
