By providing the name (first, middle and last) and date of birth for all people seeking visitation privileges, administrators then process the information to see if they are eligible to visit an inmate at the detention center. This screening process can take several days, and the jail requires proper photo identification for visitor registration.

All visitors, including attorneys and anyone accompanying the attorney, must be pre-approved.

To check whether or not visitation has been approved at the City Jail, visitors should call 702-229-6444, option 3.
