How do I arrange inmate visitation?

Inmates no longer are required to maintain a visitors list here at the Eaton County Jail.

All inmates are permitted and encouraged to have regular visits from family and friends.  All visits at this facility are done using video visitation.  Visitation appointments will need to be scheduled 24 hours in advance.  You may do this by visiting the website  or by using the scheduler that is located in our front lobby that is accessible to the public 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Visiting times are as follows for On-site visits:

Monday through Friday from 9:00 to 10:30 a.m. and 1:00 to 3:30 p.m. daily except County observed Holidays.  These visits are held here at the jail and are 30 minutes long. Inmates are allowed one (1) 30 minute visit per week.

Visiting times are as follows for Off-site visitation:

Online visitation is everyday beginning at 8:00 a.m. and concluding at 10:00 p.m. daily.  You will need to visit the website to download the application to your phone or computer and follow the steps to begin your scheduling.  You will be asked to provide a picture of your driver’s license or other state issued picture identification as well as a picture of yourself (selfie).  You will submit these 2 items to be approved for off-site visitation.  Once these 2 items are received they will be approved, once you receive a confirmation email verifying that you have been approved you may schedule your first visit.  Off-site visits are 20 minutes long and you may schedule up to 2 visits per day. These visits will cost a nominal fee that is set by the Securus Technologies Company.
