Jail Information:

What is the policy regarding inmate mail?

Incoming mail is subject to search before the inmate receives it.  Inmates may receive blank pre-stamped envelopes in the mail, as long as they are "embossed" stamped envelopes from the post office.  Blank envelopes sent to inmates with "sticky" postage stamps will be confiscated and placed in the inmate's property.  Postage stamps that are sent alone will be confiscated and placed in the inmate's property.  Adhesive return address labels, stickers of any kind and writing other than inmate name and address and return name and address are forbidden and will be returned to the sender.  "Scented/perfumed" letters will be immediately returned to sender.  All "sticky" stamps attached to incoming mail for an inmate are removed before the inmate receives it.  Intra-facility mail (letters from one inmate to another) is forbidden.  Outside persons forwarding mail from one inmate to another will be dealt with accordingly.  Mail received for an inmate that is no longer here will be returned to the sender.

What is the inmate visitation policy?

Each inmate will be allowed to receive a maximum of three (3) visitors during their weekly visit.  Visitors that are under 18 years of age must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian and will be counted as one of the visitors.  Inmates may have up to two (2) children as visitors as long as they are accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.  These will be non-contact visits held in the visitation room.

What are the visiting hours at the jail?

The schedule is as follows: Inmates in Pod A: Saturdays 6:30 p.m. - 7:30 p.m., Inmates in Pod B: Sundays, 6:30 p.m. - 7:30 p.m., Inmates in Pod C: Mondays, 6:30 p.m. - 7:30 p.m.,  Inmates in Pod D, Tuesdays, 6:30 p.m. - 7:30 p.m., Inmates in Pod E, Wednesdays, 6:30 p.m. - 7:30 p.m., Inmates in Pod F, Thursday, 6:30 p.m. - 7:30 p.m.

What items can I bring an inmate?

Property will not be accepted from outside the jail for any inmate. The only items that will be maintained in storage are those items, which the inmate had in his/her possession at the time of incarceration.

I was arrested and had cash with me. When I was released, I was given a check instead of my cash. Why?

All cash coming into the jail with an inmate is deposited into the inmate's commissary account. When an inmate is released, a check is given to the inmate instead of cash. This keeps the amount of cash in the jail area to a minimum.

What happens to an inmate’s property if it’s left at the jail when they’re released?

If an inmate is released from jail and leaves property at the jail, it is held for 2 weeks. After 2 weeks have passed, the property is no longer the responsibility of the Sheriff's Department and is disposed of.
