New visitation procedures at Alachua County jail

By on January 3rd, 2013

From Alachua County Sheriff’s Office

In an effort to improve the visitation process at the Alachua County Department of the Jail, a new procedure will go into effect starting Monday.   This new process is designed to alleviate waiting in line or visit time not being available for the inmate.  Please see the new steps listed below.

 All inmate visits must be pre-scheduled 24 hours in advance via the electronic registration system.

 The registration system can be accessed by using the kiosks located in the jail lobby. It can also be accessed 24 hours-a-day, seven days-a-week by visiting the Alachua County Sheriff’s Office website at  www.alachuasheriff.org   Once you access the site, click on the Department of the Jail tab and in the drop down menu click “Schedule a Visit.”

 Here is a direct link to the site

Additional information pertaining to the Department of the Jail is also available on the website.
