In addition, the trustee's visit may be bumped to make space for other inmates. There is no trustee visiting during Session 3 on Sundays. Instead, trustee visiting is on Mondays starting at 8 p.m. and ending at 9:30 p.m. Needs to be register by 7:40 pm.

Visiting Procedures

Each inmate receives a form at booking to fill out the name of six people the inmate wishes to visit at the jail. Inmates need to print each person’s name, address and date of birth (if known) and submit the list to jail staff. The inmate may change the people on the visiting list only on the first of the each month. This must be done using a request slip. All visitors are required to sign up 20 minutes prior to the start of each session.
