ALL VISITS (ONSITE AND INTERNET)
- All visitors must arrive at the jail (or be ready by internet) thirty minutes prior to the scheduled visitation time.
- All visitors must have a picture ID.
- Visitor and offender behavior will be monitored at all times. Any visitor displaying crude or disruptive behavior will have their visit suspended. If this is an onsite visit, you will be asked to leave the premises. If it is an internet visit, the visit will be terminated immediately. At the Visitation Officer's discretion, visitors may be permanently banned for excessive displays of such behavior.
- Appropriate clothing is required for all visitors. Examples of inappropriate clothing include, but are not limited to: short, tight, revealing and/or transparent clothing and/or pajamas as outerwear. Proper undergarments are required. Clothing should have sleeves and not otherwise expose undergarments.

- No cell phone use during any visits; however, we do allow internet visitation using the GTL VisMobile app on Android devices (links below). Cell phones are not allowed on premise at either facility. Taking pictures of any visit is strictly prohibited and can result in loss of visitation privileges.
