Inmate Visitation and Rules

Video Visitation ONLY

The Leon County Detention Facility encourages visitation for the inmates incarcerated here. We firmly believe that ties to family and friends are extremely important. However, there are rules that we need to make you aware of so your visiting privileges are not denied, terminated or suspended. 

The Leon County Detention Facility is no longer allowing on-site visitation. Visitation is now being held remotely utilizing Securus Video Connect for Remote Inmate Video Visitation. However, doctors and attorneys will be allowed to visit onsite Monday thru Friday from 0800 hours until 1700 hours. These visits will be conducted in the secured attorney rooms and will not be monitored or recorded.  Attorneys will be allotted 60-minute visits and can block multiple times if needed. These visits must be scheduled 24 hours in advance with lobby staff. All attorneys are advised to setup with 

Video visitation allow approved friends, family members, attorneys and clergy of an inmate to connect with them using their computer, Securus Video Visitation app, or on-site. 

The front lobby staff will be responsible for approving family and friend visitors. These visits will require an approval with each different detainee that they wish to visit. 

Video visitation units have been installed at the RISE Center to allow for free onsite visits. The children of detainees will be allowed to visit at the RISE Center under the supervision of a parent or guardian.

How do you know if your Inmate will be available during the time you schedule?
The Securus system knows the times that Leon County Detention Facility inmates are available for remote video visits.
It will not allow you to schedule a visit with your inmate if they are not available or the video visitation kiosk(s) in the jail are booked already.
Once you schedule a visit with your inmate they will be notified of the date and time of the visit.

Important Tips:
Your entire visit is being monitored and recorded. Do not say or do anything that you would not want being replayed in court.
You should schedule your visit, in advance, at a time that works best for you.
For best sound quality, use earbuds or headsets.
