Inmates will only be allowed 6 each of these items and will take the items with them when they leave.
VISITATION Visitation is assigned based on the bay an inmate is in. If an inmate is moved to a different bay, it is their responsibility to notify visitors of the time change. Inmates are allowed four visitors on their list with the option to change the list every 60 days. Children under the age of seventeen will be permitted to visit on the 3rd weekend of each month and must be accompanied by an authorized adult visitor. Children will not be left unattended in the visitation areas. The inmates make the choice of who is on the visitation list. Jail personnel are not authorized to give this information out. It is the inmate’s responsibility to notify those on his list. If they do not, you can find out by arriving at the jail during inmates visitation time. If you are not on the list, you will be turned away.
RELEASING PERSONAL PROPERTY If an inmate would like to release personal property to an individual, the inmate must fill out a property release form. Anyone claiming the property or money must show proper identification. All money will be given in check form that may be cashed at the Heritage Bank in Hinesville with proper identification. The property release request form must be initiated by the inmate. Jail Staff will not contact inmates requesting they release money to anyone.
