Visitation Information 

In 2020, the Yuma County Detention Center made a significant change to the inmate visitation policy by transitioning from in-person visitations to video visitations exclusively. This policy change has resulted in a 6,550% surge in inmate visitations.

The enhancement to the visitation policy has not only streamlined the process, but has also brought numerous advantages to both the Detention Center and the inmates. One of the key advantages of video visitations is the increased opportunities for inmate interactions with their loved ones. Prior to the implementation of the new policy, inmates were limited to two visits per week (depending on risk level) and limited to two visitors per visit. Now, the new policy allows inmates to enjoy unlimited visitations and also enables visitors to connect with their incarcerated loved ones from the comfort of their homes without restrictions on the number of visitors. Video visitation is especially beneficial for family and friends who live far away, saving them time and travel expenses. Moreover, it offers inmates the opportunity to engage with their entire family simultaneously, making occasions like holidays more inclusive and meaningful.
