How often can an inmate get visits?

The frequency in which inmates are allowed visits varies from jail to jail and prison to prison. Some allow one visit a week for 30 minutes. Others allow one hour visits nightly.

An inmate’s visits can be tied to:

  • Security level
  • Staff/Inmate ratio
  • Inmate behavior
  • Weather
  • Maintenance issues

Always call the facility before a scheduled visit to confirm visits are not being cancelled.
