Sheriff Howard explains, “These new hours and the extra day provide families additional times to meet with their loved ones and hopefully prove more convenient to visitors as well.  Visitation is important to the inmates and aids in their good behavior which in turn makes the environment safer for Deputies, Correctional Officers, staff, and inmates.”

 

The correctional facility’s schedule now mirrors the holding center’s schedule and will eliminate confusion between the facilities’ visiting schedules.
