Visiting an Inmate in the Navajo County New Jail in Arizona

When looking to book a visit to see a friend or relative who is being housed in the Navajo County New Jail you must plan your visit accordingly. Inmates are not allowed to accept a visitor at will and must adhere to the rules of the Jails visitation system. Dates and times available for visits are determined by the housing unit the inmate is assigned to live within. It is the inmates responsibility to inform their visiting guests of the assigned time allowed as well as where the visit will take place.

An inmate is allowed one half hour visit per week, and only two visitors are allowed to visit within one half hour session. Visitors must take turns seeing the inmate and the half hour a week must be split between the two visitors. Both guests must split the same 30 minutes and showing up after the 30 minute window voids your chance to see the inmate that week.

Children are permitted to visit inmates but can not be rotated out after they have had a turn. If you send your child in then back in to the visiting booth within the same half an hour you will have your visitation ended early. Breaking the rules can lead to your visit ending early and possibly you being banned from ever visiting the jail again. Be sure to adhere to the rules because there are no exceptions to any of the standards and practices within the Navajo County New Jail. Also note that children cannot be left unattended during an inmate visitation.

You must bring a valid photo identification card with you to book your visit. Inmates time and availability are subject to change and it is your responsibility to be sure that you know the correct place and time for your visit. Showing up on the wrong day will only waste your time as the jail does not allow for visits on unscheduled days.

Special visits can be granted every 30 days if the visitor lives more than 100 miles away and can verify that with a photo I.D. Special visits must be requested at least 48 hours before the visit and must be approved by the Shift Supervisor. A special visit is still limited to 2 visitors but is extended to one hour for the visit time.

Sign up is between 12:30 and 4 you will not be permitted to sign up early or late so please plan accordingly.
