Social Visitation

Social visits are between an adult in custody (AIC) and their family, friends, or business associates. Visits are a privilege for the AIC. They may occur only during visiting hours. Social visitors must be on the AIC's visitor list, including minors. An AIC on disciplinary status may be denied or have restricted visiting privileges. 

Visiting is on a first come, first served basis. Visitors should plan on arriving at least thirty to sixty minutes prior to the visiting session you plan to attend. The popular times for visiting are the earlier evening sessions; please plan your arrival accordingly. At Inverness Jail you may experience a line of people waiting to sign up for visits.  An AIC may have a maximum of three social visitors per visit. Children count as visitors. An AIC has only two visit periods per weekend. Each visit has a maximum length of thirty minutes. Visiting is subject to space availability.

Video Visiting

Securus Video Visiting (SVV) is a web-based system that allows visitation with an adult in custody (AIC) through the internet. Video visitation can be done at home or from one of the kiosks located in the Inverness Jail and Detention Center lobbies.

Video visits must be scheduled at least 24 hours in advance. Each visit is 30 minutes. All visits are recorded and subject to electronic monitoring.

A complete schedule of available times for each facility can be found on their website.

Official, Professional, and Media Visits

Jail staff may restrict official, professional, and media visits if they jeopardize the safety, security, and good order of the jail.  You must present valid picture identification at visitor check in. You will also have to present agency or professional identification.

Official visits are between an adult in custody (AIC) and a law enforcement, hearings, parole, or probation officer. Official visitors from other agencies should only enter the jail through the jail lobby or intake area. Jail staff may need to check official visitors in and out.

Professional visits are between an AIC and an attorney, a medical or mental health professional, a clergy member, an investigator, or a legal assistant.

Requests for media visits must go through the MCSO Public Information Officer for coordination with jail staff.
