Jail visitation to resume
As most of you know, jail visitation, along with many other activities in the jail, were temporarily suspended during COVID. We took steps to try and compensate for not doing visitation, such as weekly allowing inmates access to free phone calls to call family in place of the physical visitations. However, we are happy and excited to announce that starting April 17th, in-person visitation will be starting back up!! As a reminder, here is how the process works:
Saturday visitation for inmates with last name A-M Call on Thursday prior between 7:30am and 7:30pm to schedule a time
Sunday visitation for inmates with last name N-Z Call on Friday prior between 7:30am and 7:30pm to schedule a time
For visitation starting April 17th, persons wishing to visit will call either on April 15 or 16 depending on the inmate's last name. Visitations last 20 minutes, and can be scheduled from 9-11am, and 1-4pm.
Please note the rules associated with visiting someone in jail:
- All visits are recorded and monitored for inappropriate behavior. Visitors and inmates participating in behavior that may be inappropriate, offensive, or involve criminal activity during a visit will have the visit immediately terminated.
- Visitors and inmates participating in behavior that may be inappropriate, offensive, or involve criminal activity during a visit may be blocked from future visit access.
- All visitors are subject to search at any time.
- All visitors' personal property, except for car keys and ID, must be left in their vehicle.
- No cell phone, camera, or electronic recording equipment is allowed.
- All visitors must sign in using a picture ID prior to the visit.
- All visits will last no longer than 20 minutes.
- Any child under the age of seventeen (17) must be supervised by an adult at all times.
- All visitors must be seventeen (17) years of age or older unless accompanied by a parent/guardian. The parent or guardian must be physically present or the visit will be terminated.
- No weapons, drugs, or contraband will be displayed during the visit. Any violators could be prosecuted.
- All visits are "non-contact" visits, meaning that they will take place in a visitation booth where physical contact is not possible. "Contact" visits can be approved by the Sheriff or Jail Administrator only.
DRESS CODE FOR VISITATION
- All clothing must be worn appropriately
- Skirts or dresses must be an appropriate length. No skirts or dresses may be worn without another undergarment underneath i.e. shorts, leggings, tights, etc.
- Proper undergarments must be worn at all times
- No halter tops, tube tops, sleeveless tops, midriff stops, tank tops, or see-through clothing will be allowed
- Any violation of the dress code will result in the termination of the visit and the visitor may be blocked from future visit access at the Cleburne County Jail
In the event of emergency conditions, including, but not limited to, riot, disorder, escape attempt, severe weather, fire, or other events impacting on the safety or security of the facility and any persons therein, the Sheriff, Jail Administrator, or their designee, may cancel scheduled visitors and close the facility to non-departmental employees until such conditions are resolved.
Visitation is a privilege that may be revoked by the Sheriff or Jail Administrator at any time he/she believes visitation by any individual or group threatens the safety and security or well-being of the facility, staff, or inmates.
