Inmate Visitation

Keeping You Connected To Your Loved Ones

The Stanly County Detention Center will ensure that inmates confined in the Stanly County Detention Center are provided the opportunity to visit with family, friends and professionals during times designated for visiting by the Detention Center Administrator. There are currently two different ways to visit inmates incarcerated at our facility, online via the Internet and on-site at the Detention Center.

All inmate visits at the Stanly County Detention Center are non-contact video visits. Inmate visitation is a privilege and may be denied for disciplinary reasons. Inmate visits may be restricted consistent with administrative limitations and the need to uphold the safety and security of the facility.

Remote Online Visitation

    The Stanly County Detention Center offers remote online visitation for inmates incarcerated at our facility for a non-refundable cost. This video visit may be conducted from any high-speed Internet connection with an available web cam, microphone and speakers.
