Inmate Visiting Information

The Cherokee County Adult Detention Center now offers On-site and Remote (Off-site) video visitation.

You can conduct remote video visitation from your home, office, or any remote location over the Internet. Video visits with general population inmates can be done by using a computer, or with an Android-based mobile device. For best results, we strongly recommend using a strong, stable residential Wi-Fi network for visits.

Procedures and Hours

Inmates are allowed visits based on their current Housing and Status. Visitation times listed on show when the inmates are generally available for visits. These times do not reflect court, medical visits, work, classes, etc. If an inmate cannot or will not attend his/her previously scheduled visit, it will be canceled, and a replacement code will be emailed to the primary visitor.

 On-Site Visitation

The Cherokee Sheriff’s Office is pleased to announce the opening of the Visitation Center. On-site video visitation is available at no cost. Visitors will visit with the inmates using video visitation stations installed at the Visitation Center. On-Site visits must be scheduled one day in advance. Visits are limited to 30 minutes and no more than two visitors are permitted at each terminal. Each inmate is allowed one On-site visit per day on the inmate’s assigned visitation day.

Remote Visiting Procedures and Fees

To participate in remote visiting, you will need access to a computer with a webcam, a mic, and speakers, and you must be connected to a strong, stable internet signal. You may also visit on your Android-based mobile device, but we do not recommend using mobile data for visits. At this time, iWebVisit does not support the Apple iPhone or iPad, however you may conduct visits on Mac desktops and laptops through the Google Chrome browser. If you have access to this technology, go to to create your account and schedule your visit.

Except for attorneys and other approved confidential visitors, all video visitations will be monitored and recorded.

If you are an attorney, or other professional who requires confidential status, you must first create an account on, then contact 775-434-8748 to get registered at the jail or jails you will be visiting. Each attorney must then go to the jail in person to obtain confidential status by providing photo identification and a state bar card. If the attorney schedules visits prior to getting confidential status, those video visits will be recorded. For more details, go to Confidential Visitor Information tab on
