Visiting an Inmate in the Louisville Community Correctional Center in Kentucky

As with telephone calls and letters, another great way to keep the lines of communication open between friends and family members during a period of incarceration is by visitations. The Louisville Community Correctional Center allows visitations seven days a week, but the schedules vary. The complete table of visitation times can be found here. However, this does not apply to those housed at the Louisville Community Correctional Center. All visits for that place are held on Wednesdays and Sundays only, and located on the south side of the jail, which is located at 316 East Chestnut Street. Depending on whether or not they are work-release inmates, the times of visitations vary slightly, and they are allowed one 20-minute visit per day.

Visitations are very much encouraged by the Corrections personnel in Louisville, but they are also obligated to impose rules on visitations as to keep a sense of order and balance. First and foremost, you need a valid ID to be able to visit if you are over the age of 16. All visits are conducted 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 please behave yourself.

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.

How to use the Inmate Search for Louisville Community Correctional Center in Kentucky

[Article_Ad_2]The Louisville Community Correctional Center has 400 beds, and a revolving door of people who get locked up. Chances are you may have a family, friend, client, or loved one currently in custody. If someone you know has been arrested in the Louisville area, you can look them up through an online search database. Read below for instructions on how to look someone 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 Community Correctional Center.

Communicating with an Inmate Housed at the Louisville Community Correctional Center in Kentucky

Louisville is a beautiful city in the Commonwealth of Kentucky which has experienced a major boom in population in the last decade. No doubt, with this boom (due to a city-county merger), there are way more people to keep track of, and as a result, more crime. If you know someone who is currently incarcerated in the Louisville Community Correctional Center, contact with them is encouraged so long as both of you use common sense and don't cause a disruption. However, it may cost you a little bit. Read below on how.

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 Community Correctional Center
316 East Chestnut Street
Louisville, KY 40202

Inmates also have access to telephones in their respective dorms or dayrooms. They are provided solely for outgoing calls, and all calls made are considered collect calls. 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 consider that these rates do not include any fees for collect calls charged by your phone provider, and that if you chose to accept a call from an inmate, these charges will show up on your bill. 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 and clean! The number to call for an emergency is (502) 574-2120, but in general, inmates cannot accept incoming calls and messages.
