Corrections Facilities and Inmate Visitation


Important Information

Everyone entering into a JSO Department of Corrections Facility (DOC) will be subject to screening for signs of possible COVID-19 infection and are required to wear a face mask when social distancing cannot be maintained. Due to public safety concerns, only essential workers and professional visitors are allowed entry into DOC facilities.
 

The Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office (JSO) along with our local, state, and federal partners is actively monitoring the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) situation and is taking appropriate precautions.  As a public service agency, we have an obligation to ensure best practices are followed in protecting the public from any perceived risk.

In light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the JSO suspended all inmate visitation effective 10 p.m. Friday night March 13, 2020.  On Monday March 16, 2020, video visitation was implemented to allow remote inmate visitation. Persons who want to visit an inmate will need to create an account through www.gettingout.com.  Video visitation times will vary by facility. Legal visits will not be impacted.

The suspension of in-facility visitation is a precautionary measure taken to minimize potential risk to the facility’s occupants.  

The decision to reinstate in person visitation will be evaluated in consultation with our medical professionals to include the Department of Health.
