Visiting an Inmate in the Montgomery County Detention Facility in Alabama

The Montgomery County Detention Facility allows inmates to have visits with their family and friends through personal visits and video visits. Visitation is a great way for inmates and their friends and family to stay connected while the inmate is still incarcerated. This opportunity can lift the spirits of the inmate and give him something to look forward to. It also allows the inmate's friends and family keep a relationship with the inmate.

Visitation between inmates and their friends or relatives is allowed; however, there are strict rules that must be followed in order for this visitation to take place.

  • Visitors over 16 years of age must show photo ID.
  • Each inmate is allowed one 30- minute visitation per week.
  • Video visitations are also offered. These video visitations are offered 7 days a week and do not require an appointment.
  • If you are having problems with the audio or video reception during your video visitation, notify the visitation officer. If you or the inmate attempts to adjust the audio or video, your visitations will be forfeited.
  • Trusty inmates will be allowed two hour- long video visitations a week.

Stay connected with your friend or family member with personal visits and also video visits.
