How to look up an inmate's visitation schedule

To look up an inmate's visitation schedule, you will need to make sure you know where the inmate is being housed in our facility. To do this you must first click on the Jail Inmate List on the Sheriff's Office site, and then scroll down until you find the inmate's name and note their Housing Unit and Bed Number. Then close that window and click on the Jail Inmate Visitation link and click on the Visitation Schedule. At the bottom of the table are tabs indicating each Housing Unit, click on the appropriate Housing Unit, find the inmate's bed number and wherever it falls in the table indicates their visit times. The top of the table indicates the day of the week; the left side of the table indicates the time. Remember, they can be moved in the facility at any time so you should always check to make sure their visit times haven't changed.

To find out the visitation time, you will need to know the module and the bed number for the inmate you're wishing to visit. It is the inmate's responsibility to inform his/her visitors of this information.

Jail Visitation

It is the policy of the Licking County Sheriff's Office to encourage inmates to maintain contact with their families and friends through regular visits. Visiting is scheduled to allow such access on a regular basis, limited only by staff demands and the visiting schedule. All inmates shall be afforded the opportunity for regularly scheduled visitation.

Visitation is provided for inmates two times a week in 20 and 30-minute intervals. Disciplinary inmates are provided visitation one time per week, on Saturday or Sunday, with family members only.

The cancellation of regular visitation hours due to emergency situations or severe weather conditions will resume with the next scheduled visitation as soon as the Jail Administrator clears such situations.

The Licking County Justice Center is in the process of updating the Inmate Phone and Visitation procedure. We’ve completed the first phase of this project with the implementation the new Inmate Phone Interface (see below for more information).

The next phase of the project is the visitation portion. This includes Offsite Visiting for Family and Friends. As of now, the Securus Home Video Visitation is not functioning.

We anticipate this to be resolved the week of December 3, 2018 when Friends and Family will be able to sign up for the new Offsite Video Visitation. The website will be updated accordingly.

Thank you for your patience while we complete this project.
