Visiting Information for Children Visitors

Children Visiting a Parent in Jail

Special Family Visiting Times when families with children get first priority to visit : Saturday and Sunday: 8:30 a.m. - 10:30 a.m. and 6 p.m. - 10 p.m.

If you plan to visit with a minor child, we recommend that you visit the inmate once on your own, before bringing the child. This will provide you with an opportunity to understand the process and the facilities' rules so that you can help support your child when he or she visits.

If you want to be sure visitation has not been canceled for the day, please call 651-430-7900 and talk to the operator. We cannot tell you if your name is on the inmate's visiting list. We can only tell you if the inmate has a visitor list. The operator can tell you if an inmate is allowed a visit. Disciplinary lockdown or facility lockdown would be examples where an inmate could not visit.

Jail entrance is on the left. Open 24 hours a day.

Minor biological, adopted, step, foster or guardian children of the inmate may visit when accompanied by an adult on the inmate's visiting list. The minor children must also be on the inmate's visiting list before being allowed in.

Minors cannot be left unattended in the jail lobby or in your vehicle.

Lockers free of charge are available in the jail lobby for outer clothing, phones, purses, money, etc.

Baby strollers, cribs, and carriers are not allowed in the jail.

Visitors must control their children’s behavior in the visitor booth area or be asked to leave.

For safety and security reasons, a visit may be terminated if a visitor needs to use the restroom during the visit. For that reason, we recommend having children use the restroom before the visit begins.

All jail rules must be followed. Visitors not following the jail rules will be asked to leave and be banned from visiting for a minimum of 30 days.
