How Do I Visit an Inmate in Washington County Jail?

Visits to the Washington County Correctional Facility must be scheduled at least 24 hours before, but not more than two weeks in advance. To schedule an onsite face-to-face visit, create an account with the jail’s visitation vendor. While friends, family, and counsel (legal and religious) may register, the facility will not admit persons who may not contribute to the inmate’s rehabilitation. Such persons include:

  • Individuals that present false representation
  • Disruptive persons
  • Any one on parole or probation
  • Persons that have no legitimate purpose for the visit
  • Persons believed to have contributed to the behavior that caused the incarceration

Each inmate may receive two visits per week, each one lasting a maximum of 30 minutes. The facility allows visitors to merge these into one 60-minute visit if the inmate requests, subject to the discretion of facility authorities. All visitors must arrive before 11:00 a.m., 4:00 p.m., or 7:30 p.m., depending on the approved visitation time.

Only persons on the inmate’s approved visitor list will be admitted. Eligible persons must provide valid, government-issued photo ID, such as a driver’s license or a Department of Transportation identification. All visitors may be searched at any time.

Visitors should be at least 18 years old. Younger persons must be accompanied by their legal guardian or parent, who must keep them no further than an arm’s length away at all times. If a child is unruly or disruptive in any way, the visit will be terminated.
