By Video Visitation –

NEW CHANGES RECENTLY MADE-Read Carefully

 

The last date to conduct visitation with the current Visitation vendor, HomeWav, will be on 10/22/18.  A new visitation company, Telmate, will assume visitation responsibilities on 10/25/18.

No visitation will take place on 10/23/18 and 10/24/18 due to HomeWav stations being removed from the jail and Telmate stations replacing the HomeWav stations.  Visitors will have the capability of registering in the new system during the dates visitation does not occur. All visitors will be required to schedule a visit 48 hours in advance. You may schedule a visit  up to 14 days in advance..

All scheduled visits are conducted between the visitor and the detainee. Staff does not intervene with pre-scheduled visits, except to review the legitimacy of visitors.  If a visit is terminated and/or canceled, the Telmate system will notify the visitor and detainee through the vendor’s website.

Visits are cancelled if a detainee moves from a housing location to another housing location. Visits are also terminated if staff disapproves a visitor or detainee due to violation of the rules and/or the visitor does not meet the Santa Rosa County Jail standards. Telmate simply verifies information entered is correct prior to staff reviewing the visitor’s information. Visitors can register via the vendor’s website or the front lobby kiosk. Once visitors are approved through Telmate, staff reviews visitors of the following criteria:

1) Active local warrants           2) Domestic Violence Injunctions         3) Bond Conditions (No Contact order)       4) Previous Incarceration

Note:  The revised schedule allows visitors more access to the detainee population, away from the facility, at no cost, unless the detainee has used his/her allotment of two (2) hours a week of free visitation.  Local visits (Front lobby) are more restrictive during the week, but the schedule has been expanded to include the weekend.
