Video VisitA video visit brings an extra element of personalization to the visit without having to physically go to the facility. This method may be highly useful for those who live a long distance from the facility where their loved one is held.
Phone CallThis type of meeting with an inmate is the easiest to set up and may be allowed more frequently than other methods.

  2. Log in to your account
  3. Choose an available time-slot based on your loved one's housing assignment
  4. The visit must be scheduled at least three days in advance.
  5. Remember that an inmate is permitted four (4) in-person visits per month (one of which may be on a weekend) and four (4) visitors at a time.
  6. Always check your email the morning of your scheduled visit, because cancellation notices are sent via email.
  7. You must clear all security procedures and comply with visiting room rules.

Video Visitation
