Clergy Visits

Clergy Visits

Effective March 4th, 2021, The JCSO Detentions Facility lobby will be OPEN to scheduling and conducting public visits. Social distancing and masks are required to enter any of the facilities.

  • Professional clergy are allowed non-contact, professional visits with their religious affiliate members who are in jail. These visits do not count against an inmate’s allotment of weekly personal visits.
  • Clergy visitation privileges are not extended to an inmate's family members.
  • All clergy are asked to call the chaplain’s office before visiting the facility to arrange approval of credentials from their ecclesiastical organization.
  • Clergy must provide a photo identification, such as a valid driver's license or state identification card, before making a professional visit.
  • Clergy are not allowed to have a contact visit or to directly give an inmate any item, including those of a religious nature.
