Inmate Visitation

Harris County Jail facilities are resuming in-person visitations in a limited capacity, starting Tuesday, March 29th, 2022. In-person visitation had been suspended at jails across Texas because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Attorney-client interviews and other essential visits will not be affected. Family and friends can continue to communicate with their loved ones through calls and video visitations.

To ensure the public's safety, including the well-being of everyone working and residing inside the Harris County Jail, the visitation plan follows the guidance and approval of local public health authorities and the Texas Commission on Jail Standards.

Visits will be scheduled according to the corresponding facility, day, and floor. Visitors must register here prior to their visit. The scheduling platform allows residents to plan a visit up to seven days in advance. On-site registration will be available for those who arrive at a facility without an appointment, however visitation is not guaranteed due to facility limitations and public health protocols.

Since the beginning of the pandemic, Sheriff’s Office employees have worked diligently to maintain a high level of public service and care, implementing necessary public health measures.

To ensure the public’s safety, including the well-being of those working and residing inside the state’s largest jail, the visitation plan follows the guidance of public health officials.

    General Rules:
    Participation in video visitation is a privilege, not a right. Both attorney (visitor) and inmate are expected to conduct themselves in an appropriate fashion at all times during a video visit. For attorney/client visitation, the visit must be official in nature. Official attorney visits are not recorded and the conversations are not monitored.
    LaSalle Corrections reserves the right to deny, cancel or terminate a video visit prior to or during a video session based upon attorney or inmate misconduct. LaSalle Corrections also reserves the right to restrict visitor from participating in all future use of the system.
    Visitation is a voluntary event; LaSalle Corrections will not compel an inmate to participate in a visit. LaSalle Corrections County assumes no financial or other liability for failure to complete a scheduled video visit. The Harris County Sheriff’s Office may revise the off-site video visitation rules as necessary without advance notice.

    Scheduling & Availability:
    Attorneys are encouraged to visit the Harris County Sheriff’s Office’s website at to verify the inmate’s housing location and SPN prior to scheduling an appointment.
    All attorney visits must be scheduled at least six (6) hours in advance. Visits should not be scheduled to occur more than seven (7) days in the future. Once a video visit is scheduled, attorneys shall cancel the visit if it is later determined that the video visit will not be necessary. Presently, there will be no charges for appointments made for attorney/client video visitation sessions.
    Visitation time duration: Video visits are scheduled in 20 minute blocks, and a scheduled attorney visit may not exceed 40 minutes per inmate daily.
