Visit someone at the jail

One of the rights of inmates is the general right to maintain a level of communication with friends and family on the outside. Inmates at the Jail can communicate in three different ways.

First, they can write letters to those on the outside. Inmates cannot bring in their own stationery and stamps. Paper and envelopes are provided to inmates and stamps can be purchased through commissary. Indigent inmates are allowed a limited number of stamps paid for through the commissary fund.

Secondly, inmates are allowed to make collect and prepaid calls from their housing areas. They cannot receive incoming calls. The times that they are allowed to call out are limited based on the needs of the facility. Outbound calls are limited to 15 minutes in duration to assure that all inmates get a chance to make calls. Anyone who receives an unwanted call from an inmate at the Jail can have their number blocked from receiving any calls from the inmate telephone system by following the prompts on the telephone when an attempt to call is made. If you subscribe through a telephone provider that allows you to accept collect calls, you can follow the prompts to accept the charges for an inmate telephone call. If your telephone provider does not provide that service or if you are on a wireless telephone, you will receive a free one minute call, but you will then be directed to an Inmate Calling Solutions representative to set up a prepaid account to receive further calls.

Third, inmates are encouraged to keep in contact with friends and family through video visitation. Video visitation can take place either on-site in the video visitation lobby or off-site from almost any internet connected PC with a webcam and microphone.  You can set up a user account and schedule your visits at the following website:

You will be required to install an application on your PC if you want to visit an inmate off-site.  Instructions on setting up your PC for an off-site visit can be found here:

If you do not have a PC, you can set up a user account and schedule your visits using the kiosk located in the lobby.
