What to expect:
Children under 17 years of age will not be allowed to visit unless accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. If you are the legal guardian documentation showing proof may be required. All children shall visit the same inmate being visited by the accompanying parent or guardian and shall be kept under the supervision of the accompanying adult. Visitors under the age of 17 who are married to an inmate shall show proof of marriage before visits shall be allowed.
ALL DOCUMENTS MUST BE THE ORIGINAL OR CERTIFIED COPIES!
Special visits are allowed for persons living more that 75 miles from Dallas. A person seeking a "Special Visit" is not required to be on the inmate's visitors card. The visitor must show valid proof of residence to qualify for a special visit. Visits for a person living more than 75 miles from Dallas may be at any time other than the regular visitation hours excluding feeding times or emergency conditions.
Special visits are provided on a one time only basis for those persons who live more than 75 miles from the facility and could not have reasonably anticipated to visit, at the time the inmate completed the visiting card.
With the exception of "Special Visits" all visitors 17 years of age and older must be on the inmate's visitors card. All visits are non-contact visits. No exchange of paperwork, property, pictures, letters, books, legal work, or money will be allowed. These items, with the exception of books may be sent in the U.S. Mail. An inmate may receive books, but they must be sent directly from the publisher.

All visitors must be in proper attire at all times. No one will be allowed entrance wearing the following:
Any visitor, guest, or child of the visitor is expected to be orderly at all times. Visitor's children will not be allowed to run and or play in the visitation areas. A visitor will be warned that the children must be kept in control at all times. If, after the warning, the problem persist, a detention supervisor will be called to the floor. The supervisor, at their discretion, may allow the visitor to remain or ask the visitor to leave. No child may be left unattended while in the lobby area or during visitation.
Visitors will not be allowed to conduct themselves in a manner which may be considered as lewd. Visitors may not become loud or obscene with their voice or language. Visitors that are disruptive or who violate jail security may be asked to leave by a jail supervisor.
