    On Site Visitation

    By scheduling an on site visitation you must travel to our facility and conduct the visit from a video visitation terminal.  All on site visits must be scheduled at least 24 hours in advance.  Visits can be scheduled by either:

    • Using a video terminal in the Detentions Lobby visitation area (200 Jefferson County Parkway, Golden, Colorado)
    • Visiting External Link Icon then click on 'Schedule an On Site Visitation; at the bottom of the page. 
    Each inmate is allowed 1, 2, or 3 -20 minute visits per week on site at the jail depending on the inmates housing unit. If visiting remotely or by video visitation, friends and family can schedule unlimited visits with an inmate. On site visits are allowed daily between 9 - 10:30 a.m., 1:10 - 4:30 p.m., and 7:30 - 8:30 p.m. The visiting week begins on Sunday and ends on Saturday.

    By scheduling at-home visitation, you can participate in a visitation remotely using a computer, webcam, and high speed internet access. Charges apply. Remote visitation hours are daily between 8:10 - 10:30 a.m., 1 - 4:30 p.m., and 7:30 - 9:30 p.m.  The visiting week begins on Sunday and ends on Saturday.  To visit from home you will need to do the following:

    • Create a visitation account at External Link Icon
    • Request access to visit the Jefferson County Jail.  Your request is then reviewed by jail staff.
    • Once you are approved to be a remote visitor, you can then schedule remote visits.
    • You will be required to pay for your visitation session at the time you schedule the session.
