Pima County Juvenile Detention Center Visiting Information:
1. Parents or legal guardians may visit during general visitation hours. Any other family member, or person over the age of 18, must have the permission of the detainee's Probation officer to visit during general visitation. Each youth is permitted seven visits per week, one visit per day, and two visitors per visitation session, unless restrictions apply.
2. All visitors must be registered and screened 20 - 45 minutes prior to the start of each general visitation session. Late arrivals will be turned away or must wait for next registration and screening period.
3. Visitation hours will not be extended beyond the regularly scheduled times. Families will be accommodated on a "first come, first served" basis. Due to seating limitations, some families may be turned away and asked to visit during a later session or on a different day.
4. For everyone's safety, children cannot be left unattended, either inside or outside of the Juvenile Court building. Please make childcare arrangements prior to your visit.
5. Visitors will be required to show a pictured identification before being allowed to visit.
6. Visitors will not be permitted to bring purses, backpacks, cell phones, pagers, electronic devices, books, magazines, tobacco products, drugs, weapons, etc., into the visitation area. All items must be placed in a locker in the visitation area or locked in the visitor's vehicle. (Smoking is prohibited in the Detention facility and anywhere on Juvenile Court property.)
7. The exchange of any article with any youth is absolutely forbidden. Youth are provided the basic essentials in Detention. The only items accepted by the visitation officer prior to visitation are:
Prescription medications, in original container, with current expiration date
Clothing for out of county placement and/or CREW
Educational materials, requested by Detention educational services and meet Detention Guidelines

8. All visitors will be screened with a metal detector and will not be admitted into the visitation area if they do not pass the screening.
9. All visitors must be appropriately dressed. This includes, but is not limited to, shoes, shorts/pants, and shirt. Dress attire that is too revealing or that glorifies/promotes drugs, gangs, violence, or any type of socially unacceptable behavior will be considered inappropriate and a basis for denial of visitation.
