Visitation applicants in Henrico 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.
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.
Jails limit the number of people that can visit an inmate to three visitors.
Children under age 18 must be accompanied by the parent or legal guardian.

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.
