Harris County Jail facilities are resuming in-person visitations in a limited capacity, starting May 25, 2021. In-person visitation had been suspended at jails across Texas because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
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.

Visitation is a privilege. Visits may be denied, revoked, or limited when the visit would threaten the safety, security, or good order of the facility, or when visitation rules are not followed. Visitation privileges may be suspended or terminated for inappropriate behavior or misuse of the visitation system. Except for privileged visits, visitation will be monitored by detention personnel. It is a criminal act for a person to provide or possess with the intent to provide an inmate a prohibited substance or item (Texas Penal Code 38.11).
