Inmate Visitation

Professional visitation for legal counsel and related professionals, P& P agents, authorized

religious leaders, educators, and any other persons approved by Jail Administration may be

allowed daily from 7am – 10pm. Professionals who are a relative of the inmate may also

require additional approval from Jail Administration to insure that visitation time is used for

professional matters and not personal visit time.

The following regulations establish the requirements for visitation of Walworth County jail

inmates:

1. Professional person visiting must have picture identification.

2. Professional person must have professional status identification, such as a bar

card for an attorney or state ID for a P&P Agent, etc.

3. Clergy will need to be pre-approved by Jail Administration.

All persons entering the professional visitation areas are subject to search of their person

and/or property. Professional visitors are encouraged to leave any unnecessary items in their

vehicles.

All regular family/friend visitation is done via video from terminals here in the Huber Lobby or

offsite on an electronic device with a camera capable of internet access.
