Visiting Hours in Adams County Jail & Sheriff
The actual visiting hours vary depending on the following factors:
Adams County Jail & Sheriff Visitation Application Process
Adams County Jail & Sheriff requires all visitors to be approved by both the inmate and the jail prior to visiting your inmate, even if the visit is a remote video visit.
Incomplete information on any application is cause for denial.
Honesty, especially regarding past criminal convictions, probation etc., is important. These things will most likely show up on a background check, if one is done - which if lied about - will cause visits to be denied.
At Home Video Visitation
Your entire visit is being monitored and recorded. Do not say or do anything that you would not want being replayed in court.
You should schedule your visit, in advance, at a time that works best for you.
For best sound quality, use earbuds or headsets.
