Visiting an Inmate in the Louisville Metro Jail in Kentucky

Visiting a friend or family member in jail is wholly encouraged by the Louisville Metro Department of Corrections. It's another great way for the waves of communication to keep flowing, and it gives an inmate a break in his/her every day routine. The Louisville Metro Jail allows visitations seven days a week, but the schedules vary. The complete table of visitation times can be found here. All visits are held at the Jefferson County District Court, located at 600 W. Jefferson Street in Louisville, and all visits are conducted at the Hall of Justice basement.

As much as the personnel at the Louisville Metro Department of Corrections encourages visits, and perhaps even empathize themselves, they are also obligated to impose rules on visiting sessions. As their mission is to serve and protect, a sense of law and order needs to be maintained with upmost precision. First and foremost, you need a valid ID to be able to visit if you are over the age of 16. All visits are held on a first come first served basis and they will adhere to the schedule as much as possible. Visits may be canceled by the Louisville Metro Department of Corrections due to failure to comply with visitation guidelines, or if they feel they have to at their discretion. So when you come to visit, be civil, be courteous, and be on your best behavior.

All visitors must arrive at least 30 minutes before the end of the visitation period, given space is available. As mentioned, inmates are allowed one visit per day for 20 minutes. Visits are limited to one adult OR one adult and one child under 18 or two adults per session. No exceptions. No wild parties, unfortunately. If you are visiting from out-of-town, you may have an extended visit of 40 minutes. However, you must be from at least 100 miles away from Louisville, KY. You also must provide a valid ID and proof that you are coming from far away. A piece of mail dating a maximum of one year, or a return plane or bus ticket will do. But bring both the ID and the proof that you are out-of-state. No one likes a wasted journey. For more information on visiting an inmate in jail, please refer to this website for more tips so you don't end up on the other side of the jail walls.

How to use the Inmate Search for Louisville Metro Jail in Kentucky

Louisville, KY is a booming city whose population has more than doubled its size in the past decade (a lot of that is due to a city-county merger). It is also home to the Kentucky Derby, probably the biggest horse race in the world. It is also home to the Louisville Metro Department of Corrections, whose main jail has over 1900 beds in its vicinity. Is someone in your family or inner circle one of those 1900 souls awaiting trial? If so, you can look them up courtesy of an internet database. Continue reading for instructions on how to look someone you possibly know up.

First, you would have to log on to this website, and go to the "Jefferson County Inmate Search" link located on the left hand side of the screen. From there, you will be directed to a brief visual tutorial on how to look up an inmate. After that, go here and complete the search for your inmate.

After you search for your inmate, there will be a list of potential matches. Go to the profile of your choosing, and you will be directed to the inmate's profile. The profile is very brief and basic. It just has an inmate's name, ID number, date of birth, age, race, gender, custody status, and location. If the inmate has since been released, it will give a reason on why he or she is out of custody (i.e.: out on parole, etc). It does not give you an explanation on why an inmate is in custody, or how long a person is in for, or anything of that nature. It is just meant to verify that a person is currently in custody in the Louisville Metro Jail.

From there, you can figure out how to handle your current situation. The Louisville Department of Corrections is there to help you during a tough situation such as this one. It has an abundant amount of resources regarding bail information, and allocating funds to inmates.

Communicating with an Inmate Housed at the Louisville Metro Jail in Kentucky

The Louisville Metro Department of Corrections encourages family members and friends to keep in touch with inmates while they are paying their debt to society. Communication is vitally important outside of the walls of a jail, and it must be as important inside as well. If you have a family member or a loved one currently serving in the Louisville Metro Department of Corrections, you can keep in touch with them through letters and phone calls.

In dayrooms and dorms of the penitentiary, inmates have access to telephones. They are able to make outgoing calls, and the phones are for outgoing calls only. Inmates cannot receive phone calls or messages. If there is an emergency or special circumstance however, you may call (502) 574-2120. All calls are collect calls, and the recipient of the phone call will be billed for all phone calls accepted.

Here is the rundown on the calling rates:

  • Local: $1.85 – flat rate
  • Intralata: $1.73 plus $.23 / per additional minute
  • Interlata: $1.78 plus $.28 / per additional minute
  • Interstate: $3.95 plus $.89/per additional minute
  • Collect calls to cell phones: $9.99/per call

Please be aware that these rates do not include any fees for collect calls charged by your telephone provider. All calls are for 15 minutes, and after the 15 minutes are up, the call will be automatically disconnected. All calls are also monitored and recorded, so keep it cordial, civil and clean!

The best way to contact an inmate is through the time-honored tradition of writing letters. Be sure to obtain the inmate's CIN # and whatever you do, do NOT send contraband items! Mail is inspected for such.

The format for a letter is as follows:

Inmate's name, CIN #
Louisville Metro Departments of Corrections
400 South 6th Street
Louisville, KY 40202
