Clark County Detention Center Visitation Application Process
Clark County Detention Center requires all visitors to fill out a registration form in person at the jail.
Carefully fill out the application. Incomplete paperwork is cause for denial.
Honesty, especially regarding past criminal convictions, probation etc., is important. These things will most likely show up on the background check – which if lied about on the application, will cause visits to be denied.
You will wait at the registration desk while they run your ID nationwide for active warrants. If they find a warrant you will be arrested on the spot.
Once you pass the warrant check, a password and instructions for scheduling visits will be sent to the email you provided on the registration form. Be sure you give them a current email address.
'At Home' Video Visitation
Many jails are implementing video visits. These visits are conducted via the Internet on computers, IPADS and Smart phones.
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.
Video visitation is slowly gaining favor with all jails in America as jail management realizes the financial savings and reduced security risks involved with remote visitation.
