Due to the Coronavirus Pandemic, Sheriff Brent Miller has made some necessary changes to the daily operations of the Washington County Sheriffs Department and the Detention Center.
“We are asking that the public please try to be understanding during the coming weeks as efforts are being made to reduce the risk of spreading the Coronavirus to the inmates and staff,” said Miller.
Inmates coming into the facility are currently being screened before being inducted.
Miller said the following policies will be in effect until further notice.
- ALL on-site video visitations have been suspended.
- Any on-site visits that have been previously scheduled at the Sheriffs Department have been canceled.
- Visitation booths will remain closed.
- There will be no classes or church services that involve citizens other than personnel entering the jail.
- The public is no longer allowed to enter the Sheriffs Department lobby area to put money on inmate phone accounts or commissary accounts.
- Inmates are still allowed to make telephone calls and use remote video visitation, where family members can schedule video visits from home.
- Family members must have a computer with video visit capabilities.
