Rules and Regulations for Video Visitation

Inmates are not eligible for visitation for a minimum of the first 72 hours of incarceration, to allow for classification and placement into specified housing. This process sometimes takes longer than 72 hours. You will receive an error message until you are able to schedule the visit. Visitors can schedule a visit on line from 24-72 hours in advance.  Inmates will receive one 45 minute visit each week.  It is the responsibility of the visitor to schedule their visit on line.

Video visitation is scheduled by the visitor via the Internet. Visitors can go to the above Renovo-Web Scheduler link to schedule their visit. All visits are Monday through Friday only. Visits are conducted utilizing state of the art video teleconference equipment.

Arrival Time/Cancellations

All visitors must be signed up to visit 15 minutes before the visitation begins. If you have a visit scheduled and the person you are visiting has a scheduled court date, the Renovo Scheduler (the visitation software program) will cancel the visit. Once the inmate has returned to his/her housing area, you must reschedule the visit. Check your email often prior to your scheduled visit, no matter how far in advance or beyond the court date. It is automatically cancelled by Renovo.

Cancellations also occur due to disciplinary reasons. You will not be able to visit until the inmate has served his/her disciplinary time and returns to population. Check email often for cancellations. The visit cannot be granted if you show up for the scheduled visitation.

A quarter is needed to lock up all personal items. You may not bring anything in for an inmate during a scheduled visitation.

All persons entering the premises are subject to search. Those who are intoxicated or appearing to be under the influence of drugs or alcohol will not be permitted to remain on the premises.


Each registered visitor must have a separate individual email account. The maximum visitors allowed per inmate are two and this INCLUDES a baby or child. A baby or child must be added to the visit in order to bring the child to the visit. Only individuals indicated on your confirmation (which confirms the reservation) will be allowed to visit. No walk-in visits are allowed. You must schedule your own visit or have someone schedule your visit for you. Jail Staff will not schedule your visit for you. A photo ID is required for all visitors.
