    How many times a week can inmates get visits when they are in Detention? Does the severity of the crime matter? Thanks for all the excellent information here. It helped us a lot.

  2. Admin Mon, Apr 30 2012 7:28 PM

    For specific questions regarding visitation, it is best to call the jail at the number above. Unless the inmate is on restrictions due to to his case or for activities in the jail he is in trouble for, he will probably have visits as normal, but visitation policies change constantly so call them or have his criminal defense lawyer find out. Good luck and thanks for the complement.

  3. natalie Sun, Oct 06 2013 2:56 AM

    3 times a week for the 2 guys i have ever visited over the years. visits can be cancelled for any reason at any time and makeup visits will not happen. if an inmate is bad while in jail visits may be revoked. not sure if severity of crime matters but im sure in high profile cases it would. its a video visit you dont actually touch the inmate he will be upstairs in his unit
