When can I visit an inmate / detainee?

Inmates / detainees are allowed 1 hour-long noncontact visit every other week. Visitation time is determined by housing unit and cell assignment. There is a maximum of 4 visitors, 2 at a time. All visitors must arrive at least 15 minutes prior to visitation and must provide the Central Control Officers with a valid photo I.D. (except for accompanied children under age 16). Individuals 16 years of age, or younger, must be accompanied by an adult (at least 21 years of age). Children must be supervised at all times. Unattended or disruptive children will be escorted with the accompanying adult out of the building.


Inmates / detainees are required to complete a visitation list for each visiting session specifying whom he/she wants to visit with. Only the persons listed by the inmate / detainee will be allowed to see the inmate / detainee. It is the inmate / detainee’s responsibility to complete the list and no messages will be taken by any staff member of St. Charles County Department of Corrections (SCCDOC).


The SCCDOC adult detention facility does not permit contact visits.
