Visiting An Inmate

Question: Do inmates get visits, and what are the visiting rules and regulations, who can visit?

Answer: Inmates are allowed two, 30-minute visitation periods per week. Appointments for visiting are preferred and can be made by calling 801-851-4300. All visitors, except those under the age of 16, must show photo identification including their date of birth, current address, and signature. A warrants check will be done on all visitors. A maximum of three persons may visit at one time. This will count as one visitation period. Visitors age 12 to 17 must be accompanied by a person 21 years of age or older, unless the visitor is a spouse. A spouse under the age of 18 must show a marriage license and photo identification to be admitted for a visit. While in the visiting area, you are expected to remain seated and to use only one telephone. You and your visitors are monitored. Inappropriate behavior from either party is prohibited and may result in termination of the visit.

Children under the age of 12 may only visit during the first five weekdays/evenings of each month. Children must be accompanied by an adult. A total of only three visitors, in any combination of adults and children may visit at one time. Children must be controlled while visiting or the visit will be terminated. Children may not be left unattended in the public lobby or on jail grounds.

Inmates have the right to refuse a visitor. If there is someone the inmate wishes not to see, the visit will not count towards their weekly two visits.

Attorney and Clergy visitation: Attorneys and clergyman may visit during visiting times. Attorney’s and clergy must bring documentation identifying their position. Attorney and Clergy visits do not count against the two visits per week allowed to inmates.
