Hinds County Jackson Detention Center Visitation Application Process

Hinds County Jackson Detention Center requires that you request permission and be placed on the inmate’s approved visitor list prior to scheduling any visits. You can do this by contacting the jail and providing the requested information.  

'At Home' Video Visitation

Inmates at this jail visit friends and loved ones through remote video on the Internet.

Video visits allow the visit to take place in the privacy of your own home. Some family members 'take their inmate with them' to church, the park, the doctor or anywhere else simply by signing in and bringing the device along.

Video visits save you from having to get your children ready, drive to the jail, wait in long lines and go through security checkpoints just to see the inmate.

To set it up:

Contact the jail by phone and request to be put on the inmate’s approved visitation list. You will be asked questions about your name, birthdate, address etc.

Who Can Visit an Inmate in Hinds County Jackson Detention Center

Anyone over the age of 18, who is on the inmate’s approved visitation list may visit an inmate.

If you are on probation or parole it is important to get permission from your supervising officer to visit an inmate before your first visit. Not doing so could violate your terms of supervision and you could end up arrested. Probation/parole officers often scan through past visitation sign in sheets at the jail to see if anyone they supervise came to visit an inmate without permission. 

If you are a co-defendant with the inmate in a pending case, your visit will be denied.

If you and the inmate are under a court order to have no contact with each other, your visit will be denied.

The Hinds County Jackson Detention Center reserves the right to deny any person the right to enter the jail it chooses and for any reason.

Hinds County Jackson Detention Center Visitation Dress Code

The Hinds County Jackson Detention Center staff will turn anyone away who is not dressed appropriately for a visit.

The best way to be sure the visit takes place is to dress as if you are meeting someone's grandmother for the first time. 

Even though the visits are conducted online, they are recorded and can be viewed by jail staff. Anytime staff determines you or others are dressed inappropriately for the visit your visitation privileges can be suspended or revoked.
