Visiting an Inmate in the Henderson County Detention Center in Kentucky

Writing letters is a great way to keep in touch with a loved one currently serving time, but the Henderson County Detention Center also allows visits from those in the outside world. However, due to the fact that this is a detention center, there are many rules and guidelines that need to be followed rigidly. This way, the staff's jobs are made easier, the inmate will continue to receive visiting privileges and you will be able to come back whenever you can to visit.

Visitors must arrive 15 minutes early to the facility in order to be considered for a visit. There they will be prompted to sign in and give an emergency contact number, as well as show a valid form of ID. However, only a set of car keys and the ID are allowed to enter the visitation area of the jail; no cameras, purses, cell phones, or anything else is allowed in; save your camera battery and room for when your family member gets released! Also, please dress appropriately. Anyone deemed inappropriately dressed will be asked to leave. Leave the halter tops and short shorts in the closet.

Privileges vary to an extent based on where the inmate is housed. Inmates being held in the RCC and main facility are permitted non-contact visitation.  Non-contact visitation consists of 2 weekly visits of 15 minutes. Inmates housed in the CSC are allowed contact visitation.  Contact visitation consists of 2 weekly visits of 30 minutes. Go to this site for a complete schedule.

For all other questions you may have regarding visiting the Henderson County Detention Center, there is a great article written here that lists any other guidelines that may have not been touched upon in the preceding paragraphs. Visiting someone in a jail is not a day at the beach or a night out on the town, and it is not meant to be, but it is meant to be a positive way to keep the waves of communication flowing during a period of forced separation. Following any rules and regulations imposed by the Henderson County Detention Center will ensure that the flow of communication will continue for the duration of this difficult period of time.

How to use the Inmate Search for Henderson County Detention Center in Kentucky

Henderson County sits on the more northwestern area of Kentucky, and it borders Indiana to the north just over the Ohio River. Formed in 1799, it is relatively small in population, with around 44,000 making up its population. As much as Henderson County is a beautiful place, it does see its share of crime. If you live in or near Henderson County, you may have a member of your family or a friend in the county's detention center. If you need to look them up, however, it's very easy to do that.

[Article_Ad_2]All you have to do to look up an inmate is go to this website, and click on the Inmate Search link on the left hand side of the screen. Once you click on it, you are transported to the Henderson County Detention Center's current roster of inmates. It has all of the inmates listed alphabetically across 13 pages, but there is also a search key if you have your sights on anyone in particular. It's fairly easy to navigate. Keep in mind that it is last name first, so just be sure to look at the last name while looking for your inmate.

Click on the name of your inmate of choice, and on the right side of the screen, you will see the mug shot of your person. The rest of the screen has the information about the crimes they are charged with, and whether or not they have been sentenced for them. It also gives information, such as age, race, height and weight, arresting officer, date booked, and hair/eye color. It's kind of like a baseball card, filled with stats and other information, but not nearly as complimentary; the Henderson County Detention Center doesn't have a makeup artist and stylist on hand.

The mug shot will also let you know if a bail amount has been set for an inmate. If you have any other questions you can contact the detention center at (270) 827-5560. They'll be glad to help you out during a time of uncertainty and confusion.

Communicating with an Inmate Housed at the Henderson County Detention Center in Kentucky

The Henderson County Detention Center allows inmates to contact their loved ones outside of the jail through writing letters. The jailer will make exceptions when the security of the place is clearly in question, but otherwise writing a letter to an inmate should not be a problem, and Henderson County recognizes this as a personal right so long as the security practices of the jail are kept in order.

When writing an inmate, please keep in mind that all mail is subject to inspection for contraband and/or inappropriate material prior to delivery. However, don't be shy to write whatever because the staff is not allowed to read a letter to an inmate unless special permission is granted via a court order. Any mail deemed undeliverable will be mailed back to you. Any other regulations on letter writing and mail delivery can be found on this site.

The address to the Henderson County Detention Center is:

380 Borax Drive
Henderson, KY 42420.
