Effective June 1, the sheriff's office will begin re-opening lobby services on a limited basis. Limits are being set to avoid overcrowding and make social distancing possible.
On-site inmate visitation - Visitation in the area off the lobby will resume by appointment only. As usual, times will be limited to 30 minutes in a one-hour period and scheduled according to inmate housing assignment. The new, temporary scheduled times will be posted in inmate housing units, lobby door and our website.
There will be a limited number of booths available for visitation and only one visitor allowed per scheduled time. In the event more than one person would request a visit in the same time slot, the inmate will be allowed to choose their visitor.
Appointments can be made by inmate request or by calling the sheriff's office and speaking with the jail.
On-site visitors should be aware there may be some brief delays while areas are sanitized between uses. In the event of a delay, visit time will be adjusted to allow 30 minutes.
CCW permits - New permits or renewals will be done by appointment only.
Sex offenders - Registrations will need to be scheduled by appointment.
We recommend scheduling appointments for visitation, permits or registrations Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. After business hours, those needing CCW permits may leave a message. Please be sure to provide a call-back number for someone to help you schedule an appointment.
As always, the lobby is available for the purposes of making a report, applying for a protection order, posting bond or use of the inmate kiosk.
For safety of the community and our staff, we respectfully request the access of our lobby be limited to only the person needing to conduct business or visit. Once testing for drivers licenses has been resumed, we would also ask only the person testing enter the building.
