Who can visit an inmate?

Anyone the inmate wishes to see (barring there are no orders of protection). If you are under the age of 18, you must be accompanied by your parent/legal guardian or provide written and notarized permission from your parent/legal guardian and be accompanied by an adult.

The written permission must be able to be verified before you will be allowed to visit.
