Visitation
Visitation Requests must be initiated by the inmate. He/she will fill out an Inmate Visitation Request Form and can have six people approved for visitation. Once the Inmate Visitation Request Form is received and approved, the inmate will be assigned a one hour time block of one day per week for visitation (i.e. Mondays from 9am-10am). During this visitation hour, only two of the six approved visitors can see the inmate at one time. Any changes to the approved visitation list must be initiated by the inmate, and can only be changed every thirty days. Visitors must be at least 17 years old. Visitors must present a valid government issued ID. For more information regarding visitation, you can call 1-803-628-3083 (option 4, then option 1)

Telephone
Inmates must initiate a request for telephone privileges. They can have ten phone numbers approved. Inmate phone calls are outgoing collect calls only. You can restrict phone calls by selecting that option when an inmate attempts to call you. Calls from this facility will be restricted indefinitely once you select that option. For more information regarding the Detention Center phone system, please call 1-803-628-3083 (option 4, then option 3). If you have any issues with our telephone system, or would like to set up an account for an inmate, please contact Securus Technologies at 1-800-844-6591.

Personal Messages
It is not our policy to pass messages to inmates. If you have an emergency situation and need to inform an inmate of the situation (i.e. death of an immediate family member), please contact the On-Duty Shift Supervisor at 1-803-628-3083 (option 3)
