[ARCHIVED] Temporary Jail Video Visitation Disruption

In preparation to begin implementation of the new inmate tablet program, on July 8, 2019, from 8AM until approximately 1PM, video visitation will be temporarily unavailable.  

Upon full implementation, a tablet will be provided to every inmate free of charge.  The tablets cannot access the internet and do not have social media, camera, or video capabilities.  Instead, the tablets are a closed-end system, intranet based, only allowing content the Sheriff approves.  This content includes job searching, law library applications, educational materials, mental health service information, jail forms/grievances, and a small number of jail-approved podcasts, music, games, and books.  The inmates will have access to the tablets during the daytime hours.  They will be collected and charged overnight.
