Visitors are required to empty their pockets, and remove from their person all items except clothing, wedding bands, prescription eyewear and medical alert bracelets. Possession of anything else; for example: weapons, money, drugs, pens, cell phones, and pagers is illegal.You will be arrested and charged with "Promoting Prison Contraband" if you attempt to enter the visitation area in possession of any prohibited item.

This list is not inclusive of all prohibited items. If you have anything on your person other than your clothes, wedding band, medical alert bracelet or prescription eyewear, it is probably a prohibited item and therefore considered Contraband. If you do not know if an item is considered contraband, ask a Visitation Officer.

Removed items can be locked in your vehicle or deposited in coin-operated lockers with a non-refundable 25-cent deposit. Items left in the lobby and not secured in a locker are left at your own risk. Officers are not responsible for the safekeeping of your property.
