Visitation Policy

Pickens County Detention Center Visitation PolicyPlease be aware that public visits are only available Monday-Friday 8:00am-4:00pm. If you do not have internet at home, you can schedule a visit on the kiosk after each visit or come to the lobby between the hours of 8:00am-4:00pm Monday-Friday.

To schedule an onsite Video Visitation you can go to www.  and create an account. All visits must be scheduled 24 hours in advance. This is not something that we have control of or can change.

Make sure the inmate you are visiting has informed you of the days and times they are available to have video visitation. You will need to have this information before you schedule a visit. Once you schedule your visit, you will be given a PIN number. You must have your PIN number in order to visit an inmate via video visitation.

Visitors entering the facility are subject to a pat-down search. Visitors have the right to refuse the search; however, refusal terminates visitation privileges for that day.

No purses, bags, firearms or weapons of any type, chemical sprays, cell phones, or cameras will be allowed in the facility. All personal effects must be left at home or in their vehicle.

Officers may refuse a visit if a visitor appears under the influence of any intoxicating substance, refuses to cooperate, fails to produce identification or acts in a disorderly manner.

All visitors are required to follow the instructions of the Detention Staff. Visitors failing to cooperate will be asked to leave, terminating the visit and are subject to the revocation of visiting privileges.

Children are to be kept under supervision and control during the visit.

Visitors must wear conservative clothing. Short-Shorts, miniskirts, bathing suits, halter tops, tank tops, low cut shirts or other revealing clothing is prohibited and will prevent them from visiting. Any visitor who intentionally exposes themselves in violation of state law during a visit will be prosecuted criminally.

Problems encountered with visitation may be directed to the on-duty Sergeant or the facility Lieutenant by calling (864) 898-1434.
