Every inmate has the opportunity to sign up for a designated visiting time located within each housing unit. Only one time slot will be allotted per inmate, each visiting day. They may have more than one person visit during this time period, but only during the time they signed up for. (Children of the inmate do not have to be listed.)
The jail is located at the Law Enforcement Center in Hastings.
Segregation inmates are not allowed visitors
Segregation inmates will not be allowed visitors while on lockdown status.
Inmates must notify visitors of time
It is the inmate's responsibility to notify their visitors of the time they have selected. We will not accept phone calls from the public inquiring about the time an inmate has selected for visits. It will be the visitor's responsibility to be on time for the scheduled visit — late arrivals will not be accepted.
Due to circumstances beyond our control, the visiting schedule may be adjusted by the Jail Supervisor on duty.
