    Your web site says, "Visitation appointments can be made 7 days per week from 8 am to 7.30 pm by calling 321-690-1518." However, when I call on the weekend to set up an appt, the phone rings and rings with no answer or recording, or else it's busy, which indicates someone else is trying to contact you (probably also unsuccessfully). During a telephone call with a prisoner last evening, he said a jail official was standing with him and the official said I could call on the weekend to make an appt. Please, update your informational statement re visitations to address this situation.

  2. Admin Thu, May 30 2013 5:58 PM

    Mike, According to the jail, the number and hours are correct.

  3. Laurie Tue, Sep 03 2013 9:50 AM

    This facility has one person answering the telephone for inmate visitor appointments. A continuous busy signal or constant rings with no pick up -- however, eventually someone does pick up to take your appointment. It took me from 9am until nearly 6pm one day to get an appointment. Just keep calling. You'll get through eventually.

Visiting an Inmate in the Brevard County Jail in Florida

Florida has long been recognized as one of the most picturesque spots in all of the United States, but don't tell that to the inmates of the Brevard County, Florida jail system. The walls of their small cells, as well as the little view they may have of outside, doesn't quite measure up. What they do have access to, though, as does every inmate in US jails, is the ability to receive visits from friends and family on a fairly regular basis. It is often those visits that help inmates make it through the long days they have to spend inside, with the chance to talk to a loved one often enough to break up the monotony of life behind bars. What visitors have to understand when visiting a loved one in jail is that there are rules to follow, and which must be adhered to if the visitation privilege is not to be cut short.

Visiting Rules

If you wish to arrange a visit with a loved one housed in the Brevard County jail system, you will have to call ahead to schedule a time. It's worth noting that there will be no direct contact with the inmate, since Brevard County uses a video set-up that is similar to using Skype. The visitor will remain in the Visitation Building and will talk to inmates via the Video Visitation System. The inmate will remain in their housing unit during the 45-minute session, with the video link terminated after that time period has passed. Here are the rules that you will have to abide by during the visitation process:

  • No more than 3 visits per week per inmate. Visitors are limited to 3 visits per week per inmate.
  • Visitors must arrive and sign in 15 minutes prior to the scheduled time
  • A valid Photo ID must be presented before access is granted
  • Children under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult, with only 1 minor allowed per visit
  • All personal property other than ID should be left in your vehicle
  • Pictures must be approved before being shown to the inmate
  • Visitors must be dressed appropriately at all times, with no revealing clothing worn
  • Profanity and lewd behavior is prohibited
  • No smoking or eating is allowed
  • Visitors arriving under the influence of drugs or alcohol will be turned away
  • All visitation are subject to audio and/or video recording

Visiting Hours

The visiting hours for the Brevard County jail run from 8 am to 7 pm daily, but are by appointment only. Visitation appointments can be made 7 days per week from 8 am to 7.30 pm by calling 321-690-1518. You may also call that number of you have any questions regarding the rules in place for visitation.

The Brevard County sheriff's department is happy to provide inmates and their families with visitation times as they understand how beneficial it can be during that most stressful of times. That said, they will not extend the courtesy to those that openly flaunt the rules and regulations laid out above.

The Brevard County jail complex in Florida has come a long way since it opened back in 1986. At that time, the jail was designed to hold 386 inmates, but subsequent expansions have seen the jail now grow to the point where it can comfortably house 1,500 inmates at any given time. There is also a trio of tents, with a fourth coming soon, for inmates, a woman's only jail, and a medical and mental health facility all on the grounds. This is an operation that is growing quickly, which means that finding an inmate housed in the system may not be that easy.

[Article_Ad_2]Most sheriffs' offices across the country have made it easy to find inmates in their custody by supplying a look-up tool of one kind or another on their website. While the Brevard County system is a little less advanced than that, they do still give you updated information about who they have in their system, with the list updated daily at 7 am. When you arrive at the Brevard County website, you need to locate the link called “Inmate Photos.” Clicking that will take you to the updated list of names, with the date and time of the update clearly shown at the top of the page. It can be an extensive list, but it is in alphabetical order to make your search a little easier. Once you find the person you are looking for, click on their name and you will be given the following information:

  • Name and DOB
  • Arrest Date
  • Arresting agency
  • A pair of mug shots
  • A list of current charges

As you can see, there is only the bare minimum when it comes to information, but the mug shots provided should be more than enough to allow you to make a positive ID of the person you are looking for. Where it could get tricky is of you are not entirely familiar with the name of the person you are looking to find. Still, most will know either the first or last name, which is enough to help narrow down the search. If you do find your friend or loved one and wish to visit, you will have to call ahead to arrange a visitation time, as you will not be granted access to the jail without having made prior arrangements. Keep in mind, the list is created in the early hours of the morning, so anyone arrested during the day will likely not show up until the following morning.

Communicating with an Inmate Housed at the Brevard County Jail in Florida

It's easy to imagine that the United States jail system, as big as it is, has one massive set of rules and regulations that apply to every single jail in the country. While some of the basics rules are consistent across the board, many others differ from state to state, and even within the counties of each individual state. What that basically boils down to is that you shouldn't assume that you know all of the rules just because you had a friend or family member incarcerated somewhere else. The easiest way to keep up to date with what is and isn't allowed in each jail system is to visit the website of the sheriff's department for the county you are interested in. That said, let's take a look at the rules in place when it comes to communication with a Brevard County, Florida inmate.

Mail

There may be no easier way to keep in touch with someone in jail than through the mail system. While there are restrictions on what can be sent to an inmate, there are usually very few limitations to the amount of letters and cards that you can send. You must always keep in mind that every piece of correspondence you send is likely going to be inspected first, so make sure to follow all the rules laid out by the county. If you want to send mail to the Brevard County jail, here is what you will need on the envelope:

  • Inmates name
  • Inmates date of birth (if known)
  • 860 Camp Road, Cocoa, Florida 32927

A Guide To Mail Items

Making sure that you have the correct information included on the mail will give it the best chance of reaching its intended recipient. That does not mean that you can simply just slip anything inside an envelope and send it along, though, with many mail items remaining undelivered because of questionable content found within. These types of things are generally prohibited:

  • Inflammatory content
  • Blatantly sexual messages
  • Scented materials or signs of other substances inserted
  • Hate mail
  • Photos of a lewd or lascivious nature
  • Other types of photos such as family pictures are permitted, but an approved photo request must be issued first. Make sure that no tape or other sticky substance is used when sending those pictures.

Telephone

The Brevard County jail generally doesn't allow calls to be passed through to inmates, with the possible exception being in the case of a death in the family. Even then, the likelihood is that the jail chaplan will be the one chosen to pass on the message. There are circumstances where the inmate will be allowed to receive the message from the person calling, but each call is reviewed on a case by case basis before any final decision is made in that regard.

Visitation

If you wish to visit an inmate in the Brevard County jail system, you will be required to call ahead and schedule a visitation time. Visits are limited to 3 per week per inmate, with visitation hours running from 8 am to 7 pm. There is no actual face to face time between the inmate and the visitor, with all visits limited to a 45 minute video conference session that could be monitored and recorded.
