Visit an Inmate

On-Site Visitation

By scheduling an on-site visitation you must travel to our facility and conduct the visit from a video visitation terminal. All on-site visits must be scheduled at least 24 hours in advance. Visits can be scheduled by:

  • Using a video terminal in the Detention Services Division's visitation area (200 Jefferson County Parkway, Golden, Colorado). Jail lobby and visitor's parking is located in the upper SW parking lot off Jefferson County Parkway and Weirmer Street.
  • Visit the Securus Tech website then click on 'Schedule an On-Site Visitation; at the bottom of the page.

Each inmate is allowed one, two, or three 20 minute on-site visits per week depending on the inmate’s jail classification. The visiting week begins on Sunday and ends on Saturday.

Tips for a Successful Visit:

 Please be here 10 to 15 minutes before the visit and check-in with the receptionist or deputy

 Have a current photo ID for all visitors over 18 - Jefferson County does NOT accept digital ID for visits.

 In order to be approved for a visit, the ID you present must match the address and state of residence that you provide.

 Wear appropriate clothing or you may be asked to reschedule

 Please be respectful of others and use clean language and inside voices

** Visits start at the scheduled time and end 20 minutes later, if you are late the visit is shorter.

  • 9 to 10:30 a.m.
