Inmate Visitation

The following are dates and times that it is permissible to visit persons currently incarcerated in the Highland County Jail.

Since this is a Correctional Institution there are strict rules that apply to visitors as well as inmates. So that your visit goes smoothly, we recommend that you review this website and follow the rules stated herein.

Inmate Visitation times:

Males                                     Females

Monday           5:45 PM to 7:15 PM              7:30 PM to 8:30 PM
Tuesday           1:00 PM to 2:30 PM              11:45 AM to 12:45 PM
Saturday          12:00 Noon to 2:00 PM.        9:30 AM to 10:30 AM

All visitations are non-contact visits by use of an intercom system with a window.

Inmates are permitted a maximum of 30 minutes of visitation time each week, starting on Monday and ending on Saturday.

Twenty minutes prior to visitation times, a clip board will be hung beside the door to the jail. Use this board to sign up for visitation. With the exception of inmates being held in medical isolation, visitors are taken on a 1st come, 1st serve basis. To prevent the spread of disease, inmates in medical isolation will be held to the last visit of the day.

All adult visitors must have a photo ID to be admitted. No person under the age of eighteen (18) may visit an inmate unless accompanied by a person eighteen (18) years of age or older, and is related to the under-aged person (parent, grandparent, sibling, spouse, or child’s legal guardian). No more than two (2) minors are permitted with one adult visitor at a time.

You may visit with more than one inmate, but you must leave the visitation room and go to the end of the line after each visit.

The following items are not permitted past the security door from the public lobby: Purses, drinks, packages, bags, cell phones, or any other item that may pose a threat  to the facility or may create a disruption to other visitors. You should leave these items with another person or in your vehicle.

Inmates are not permitted to receive any items from family or friends during visitation or at any other time.

Visits may be terminated under the following circumstances.
The visitor:
– appears to be under the influence of alcohol or drugs
– refuses to submit to search procedures
– refuses or fails to produce sufficient ID
– falsifies information
– fails to prevent children from disturbing other visitors
– has a past history of being disruptive at the Justice Center

The corrections officer will advise you when your visitation time has ended. Please conclude your visit as promptly as possible. Delaying can result in the next inmates visit being cut short.

Occasionally, the inmate you wish to visit may have their visitation rights revoked due to jail rule violations. In this event, the corrections officer will inform you that you cannot visit the inmate at this time. You may contact the jail and find out when their privileges will be restored.

Corrections officers are here to assist you in making your visit as easy as possible. Please follow their directions and refer any questions to them. If they are unable to answer your questions, they will refer you to someone who can.

You may write to an inmate by addressing your letter to the inmate,
