Visiting an Inmate in the Dallas County Jail - North Tower in Texas

The Dallas County Department of Corrections encourages visitation privileges, as they recognize that inmates have families and friends outside the walls of jail and visits can be a positive way to keep an inmate going during a time of incarceration. Nevertheless, the Dallas County Department of Corrections has rules and regulations that need to be strictly upheld so that these privileges won’t be revoked or compromised for either inmates or loved ones.

Inmates are only allowed two visits per week, and the people who visit an inmate have to be placed on a visitor card issued to the inmate and subsequently approved by the staff. Inmates are allowed to make changes to their visitor cards every 90 days. Inmates with last names that start with A-L can receive visitations every Monday and Thursday, whereas inmates with last names that start with M-Z may receive visitors every Tuesday and Friday; no visitations on Wednesdays.

Also, no children under the age of 17 will be permitted to visit on Monday-Friday. Instead no more than 2 children are permitted to visit on weekends. All children must be accompanied by an adult. Also on Saturdays and Sundays, all visitors regardless of last name can receive visitors.

The visitation hours are as follows:

  • Monday-Friday 7:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m. (No visits allowed on Wednesdays)
  • Saturday 8:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m.
  • Sunday 8:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m.

Also keep in mind that any visitors that show up 30 minutes before the end of visiting hours will not be processed and will have to return another day.
