Suspension of Onsite Inmate Visitation

In a response to growing public health concerns related to COVID-19, the Sedgwick County Sheriff’s Office has suspended all onsite family video visitation.  The suspension was initiated March 17th, 2020, at 12:00 p.m.  This suspension will be in effect until March 31st, 2020. 

The lobby will still remain open to the public for placing money on an inmate’s account, for the public to see administration, for attorneys/court staff to use Professional Visitation, and the public to see Records.

Inmates still have access to remote visitation.  Remote Visitation Hours are 9:00 a.m. until 10:00 p.m., seven days a week.  For additional information regarding visitation please visit

We recognize this may be inconvenient for people, but we ask the citizens to for their understanding.  The safety and health of the inmates, staff, and visitors is paramount.
