Visiting an Inmate in the Collin County Jail in Texas

McKinney may be pretty low on the totem pole when it comes to the most populous cities in Texas, but it is most certainly up there when you are looking at the best places to live in the United States.

McKinney actually ranked number 2 on that list in a CNN poll back in 2010, and you have to believe that much of the credit for that goes to the Collin County sheriff’s department who work hard to make sure that the residents have a county they feel safe living in.

Unfortunately for some, the only view they get of that beautiful town is through the bars of a jail cell, but it should also serve as the inspiration to do right and get free.

If you have a loved one who is currently incarcerated in the Collin County jail system, you are of course free to visit them, assuming of course that you follow all the rules and regulations that are in place.

Visiting Rules

All visits to the Collin County jail must be scheduled beforehand, with visitors expected to arrive 20 minutes prior to the scheduled time. Each of the visits will be limited to 25 minutes, but will be very quickly cut short if you or the inmates you are visiting fail to follow the rules, which include the following:

  • Anyone arriving less than 20 minutes prior to the scheduled visitation will be turned away
  • Visitors need to show a valid photo ID in order to receive a visitors pass
  • Only those visitors that appear on the inmates visitation lost will be granted access to the jail
  • Visitation is restricted to one adult visitor per inmate per day. Children under the age of 16 need to be the child of the inmate or visitor in order to be allowed visitation rights. They will only be admitted if space permits during that visitation period
  • Cash and other approved items can be left for the inmate
  • Mail cannot be left and has to be directed through the postmaster of the jail
  • Visitors must wear appropriate attire and will be turned away of their clothing does not conform to those standards
  • No personal items such as cell phones, purses, backpacks, etc. are allowed in the visitation area

Visiting Hours

The visitation schedule for the Collin County jail is different depending on what area of the jail the inmate is housed in. The Collin County sheriff’s department has a complete schedule available for download at their website.

Any attempt to gain admittance to the jail without a scheduled time or outside of that visitation schedule will result in you being turned away.

The visitation schedule can change at a moment’s notice and without any type of prior warning. You are advised to make sure that you have a copy of the most recent schedule before making an appointment to visit.

How to use the Inmate Search for Collin County Texas

The number of people in jail at any given time is in a constant state of flux, which means that trying to track down a single inmate can be incredibly tough. You also have to factor in that prisoners are often moved from jail to jail as space permits, making it all the tougher to find one single person.

[Article_Ad_2]Perhaps the hardest place to find an inmate might very well be in Texas which, at time of writing, had the largest inmate population in the country.

The internet has made tracking down inmates a whole lot easier, but unless you know exactly which state or county they are being held in, it can still mean a little bit of work is in your future. Knowing the county that a person is houses in will really help your cause, as is witnessed by the inmate search tool on the Collin County sheriff’s department website.

While perhaps not as sophisticated as some of the other counties, you are still able to find the person you are looking for in less than a minute, assuming of course they are in Collin County jail.

All of the inmates are listed alphabetically, with the following information included:

  • Name and DOB
  • Sex
  • Race and ethnicity
  • Vital statistics
  • Booking date
  • Release date
  • LE#

If you see the person you are looking for in the list of names, all you have to do is click on their listing to be rewarded with the following information:

  • Mug shot
  • Cell information
  • Vital statistics
  • Arrest and release date
  • Days confined
  • SO number
  • Charges, bonds, fines, and court costs
  • Emergency contacts and approved visitors (keep in mind that if you are not on the approved visitors list, you will not be able to visit the inmate in jail)
  • Distinguishing marks
  • Aliases

This should be more than enough information to help you track down the person you are looking for, but there is a lot more to do if you wish to pay them a visit. Each and every inmate has an approved list of visitors, and they are the only ones that will be granted access to the jail on visitation days.

You will need to make arrangement to get on that list of you do wish to visit in the future. Perhaps the most important piece of information found above is the cell number and location.

Visitation hours are based on where the inmate is housed, so you will need to have that information if you are planning on scheduling a visit to the Collin County Jail.

Communicating with an Inmate Housed at the Collin County Jail in Texas.


When you head to the mailbox to send out a letter or postcard, you generally walk away pretty confident that your mail will reach its destination. There are no such guarantees when the mail you are sending is to an inmate in the Collin County jail system, or any other jail in the United States for that matter.

As is the case with every jail, there is a belief that an inmate has a better chance of adapting to life behind bars if they are allowed contact with family and friends. That of course doesn’t mean that they are free to do and say as they please in such communications, but as long as everyone abides by the rules, the jail system is quite happy to allow this type of contact.

Mail

Communication by mail may very well be dying out in civilian life, but it is very much alive and well in the jail world. It is still the easiest and most effective way to send a message of love, hope, and encouragement to a friend or family member who has been incarcerated.

While there tends to be no restriction on how many letters you can send, there are some definite rules about what can and can’t be placed in the envelope. There is also a limit to the things that can be said in the letter, which is why each and every piece of mail that enters the jail is subject to inspection.

Here is how it works at Collin County Jail:

  • All mail must go through the jail postmaster; no exceptions. You must use your complete return address.
  • Post the full name of the inmate, as well as their cell and pod location on the envelope.
  • Jail address: Collin County Detention Facility 4300 Community Ave. McKinney, Texas 75071

A Guide to Mail Items


There is very little information regarding the content of the mail to inmates. Anything listed here is basically an assumption based on the rules and regulations found in other jails across the country.

While many jails have different rules about the way things are run, what is and isn’t allowed in mail seems to be pretty consistent across the board.

Here are the types of things that 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

Telephone

As nice as it would be to chat to your loved on every day, access to the telephone is simply not that readily available. You have zero chance of getting to talk to an inmate if you try to call, and the only way they can get in touch with you is via collect calls.

It should be noted that these calls can run upwards of $15 per time, which makes mail seem all the more appealing.

If you wish to stop collect calls coming in, you can request to have them stopped at any time.

Visitation

Face to face, albeit through Plexiglas, is perhaps the best way to visit, but you will be limited to the time you get to visit.

Visitation sessions are limited to 20 minutes per visit and you are required to call ahead and schedule an appointment before showing up at the jail.

It’s also important that you know which cell and pod the inmate is located in at the Collin County Jail, as visitation times are based on that.
