Cherokee County Jail Inmate Visitation

Cherokee County Jail - At-Home Video Visitation

Cherokee County Jail uses the services of NCIC for remote video visitation. In other words, you can visit your inmate in jail by using your home computer, as long as it is equipped with a microphone and camera that supports video.

When available, the jail also provides use of ‘video visit kiosks’ in the jail lobby if you do not have a computer at home. These ’on-site’ video visits are FREE.



Costs
NCIC Video Visitation fees are subject to change, but the cost to you is roughly $7.50 ($0.25 per minute) for a 30-minute visit + an additional fee of $2.00 for the connection.
On-site (at the jail) video visits are FREE.

Cherokee County Jail Visitation Application Process

Cherokee County Jail 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.

Who can Visit an Inmate at Cherokee County Jail

Anyone over the age of 18, who isn't on felony probation and can produce a valid government-issued photo ID can be approved to visit an inmate in this jail.

Visitation applicants in Cherokee County County must sometimes submit to a background check. Those with warrants are denied visitation or if allowed to visit, will be arrested at the jail.

Children under age 18 must be accompanied by the parent or legal guardian.

It is likely that the Cherokee County Jail will deny visitation to anyone with a past felony conviction regardless of probation/parole status. Call (918) 456- 2583 prior to arriving for the specific jail guideline regarding your legal status.

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 Cherokee County Jail reserves the right to deny any person the right to enter the jail (or take part in remote video visits), and for any reason.

Cherokee County Jail Visitation Dress Code

The Cherokee County Jail 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. 

Remote Video visitation is no different. If you are not dressed discretely, your visit will be terminated. Future visits could also be affected.

  • Wear clothes that are not revealing.
  • Don't wear see-through material.
  • Have all undergarments covered (males and females) and avoid a lot of cleavage.
  • Shorts and skirts should reach mid-thigh.
  • Sleeves should be at least half-way to your elbow.

The following types of clothing are also prohibited:

  • Clothing promoting gang affiliation.
  • Anything displaying drugs, weapons or profanity.
  • Clothing depicting anything obscene.

Visitation Tips and Guidelines

Jail visits are conducted in person behind plexi-glass or remotely, either from home or on-site at Cherokee County Jail.

All video visits are both monitored in real time and are recorded. Whatever you talk about, can and will be used against your inmate in court. Never discuss their pending criminal case!

Children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian and guardians must provide proof of their guardianship.

If you are visiting on-site at the jail, leave all personal belongings, except for your state ID, in your vehicle or in a locker (if one is provided).

At the jail, children must be monitored at all times or jail staff will end the visit early.
