Mission Statement

Our mission is to protect the public and institutional security and safety while providing programs intended to reduce the occurrence of re-incarceration.


Beginning July 1, 2021, the lobby doors will reopen to the public. All visitors must wear a mask unless a valid vaccine card is produced to staff.


In-person Visitation will resume beginning July 1, 2021.  Below is the inmate schedule by cell. Please be advised that if all time slots are full for the day, you can schedule for the next day of visitation.

  • PC cells- Tuesday (8:40-10:20) and Saturday (4:00 to 5:40)
  • SAP cells- Tuesday and Saturday (1:00 to 2:20)
  • Disciplinary inmates (inmates who are in ISO cells for disciplinary action)- Sunday and Wednesday- 3 am visits
  • Male workers- Wednesday and Sunday (7:20 to 7:40)
  • All other cells- Wednesday and Sunday (7:20 to 5:00)


Call the jail to make an appointment- First come first serve. The visits are 15 minutes in length. The visitation booth will be sanitized between visits. One family member or friend at a time. In an effort to reducing the chance of contracting or spreading COVID, all other persons need to remain in their vehicle not in the lobby. Masks must be worn and temperatures taken. If the visitor produces a valid vaccine card they do not have to wear a mask.


Persons will need to be over 16 years of age, have a photo ID such as a driver’s license, no cell phone or food/drink allowed in the booth. Use of profanity is prohibited; violation of this policy will result in visitation restrictions, up to being barred from visits.

Visitors are to be dressed appropriately. If a visitor is not appropriately dressed they will be asked to leave. The visitation officer holds the authority to make this discretionary decision.

In accordance with KRS 520.010, KRS 520.050, and KRS 520.060, anyone entering the grounds of a correctional institution may be subject to a personal search and/or a search of their vehicle.
