Security:  Inmates will be allowed to have in their possession or housing area only authorized or issued items and materials.  All other items and materials including, altered or misused items or materials, will be considered contraband and confiscated.

 All items brought into the Walton County Jail will be subject to search.  Any inappropriate items found could result in prosecution of the individual bringing items to the jail.

 Accumulation of authorized item materials considered excessive and constituting a safety, security or health hazard will be confiscated as contraband.  Any misuse or abuse of authorized items or materials which hinders or restrict safety and security surveillance by staff members or electronic devices is prohibited.

Daily inspections will be conducted.  Searches are routine and used to control the introduction of contraband.  



Visitation with family members, relative, friends, legal counsel and ministry will be allowed as posted.  The dates and times of visitation will be posted in each cell.  It is your responsibility as the inmate to notify your visitors of the dates and times of your visitation.  This information will not  be given out over the phone by facility staff.  Each visit may last up to thirty minutes, but may be limited to ensure equal visitations periods for all eligible inmates.  You are allowed two visitors during each visitation period. Be advised if a child can was he/she is considered a visitor.  If children are disruptive and causing problems for the other inmates during visitation, you will be asked to leave.  The visitor(s) must have picture ID when they come to visit. The visitor must be there at least thirty (30) minutes before your visitation starts to sign in.  A copy of the visitation schedule is listed below. We have to run a very strict visitation to ensure all inmates are allowed to visit if you are late, your visitation may be cut short or forfeited.  Failure to comply with an officers instructions could result in visitation privileges being lost.

Visitation by legal counsel, ministers and other privileged individuals will be conducted with the most privacy available and will not be limited or restricted during normal hours.  However, such visitation may be suspended or delayed during scheduled facility programs and services. Special visits require specific approval.  Written request by the inmate must be submitted to the Detention Commander or his designee for approval.  Once approved the inmate will need to notify the visitor of the approval and the visitor will then need to call the Shift Supervisor and set up an appropriate time to visit.  Visitors will need a picture ID and other specific identification( Bar card, Ministers ID etc.) when arriving for their visit

Visitors must wear appropriate clothing.  No tank tops, halter tops, short shorts (fingertip length), mini skirts or see through clothing will be allowed.
