Whitman County Jail - Inmate Visits

Inmate Visits

Visitation is a privilege. We reserve the right to refuse anyone a chance to visit an inmate. Visitation is every Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday from 1:30 pm to 4:30 pm. 4:00 pm is the latest we allow someone to check-in for visiting.
  • There is a limited amount of space for visiting therefore it is not always possible to visit the entire three hours.
  • If you have anything you would like to give to an inmate you must do it prior to your visit as the Corrections Officers are busy and may not be able to accept the items after you have completed your visit. Corrections Officers may limit the number of items that you request to drop off or refuse an item if it is not allowed in the jail.
  • You must provide picture ID to visit. If you do not have a picture ID you will not be accepted.
  • Visitors are subject to search. You may refuse being searched but that also means you will not be able to visit.
  • Visiting is typically given on a first-come first-served basis but immediate family members are given priority in visiting over friends.
  • If you have any packages, cellphones, recording devices, or a purse you must leave it in the wall locker. A Corrections Officer will give you a token to place it in the locker.
  • Visitors must be 18 years of age unless they are accompanied in person by their parent or legal guardian.
  • Visitors engaging in arguments or rowdy behavior will be removed from visiting. Small children must be kept under control.
  • Visiting is non-contact and will be conducted via a phone.
  • Do not leave small children in the lobby unattended.
  • Should you encounter problems while visiting notify a Corrections Officer.

You may bring only a small number of items to inmates. If something is not on this list, we will refuse its acceptance into the facility. Give all items to the Corrections Officer before you visit. You can receive a receipt if you give money.
