INMATE VISITATION SCHEDULE CHANGES
We’d like to make everyone aware of some adjustments that have been made to our inmate visitation schedule. Effective Friday, June 4, 2021, the following time slots will be available to schedule inmate visits;
In addition, there will no onger be visitation on Friday evenings (7:30-8:45pm).
Inmates will no longer be permitted to have consecutive fifteen (15) minute visits. Only one (1) fifteen (15) minute visit will be permitted at a time. Inmates may still have up to four (4) visits each day, but they cannot be scheduled consecutively.
We also wanted to remind everyone any inappropriate content will result in immediate termination of a visit and loss of visitation rights for a minimum of thirty (30) days for the first infraction, sixty (60) days for a second infraction, and ninety (90) days for a third infraction.
All visits scheduled for tonight will not be effected by these changes. Any visits scheduled for tomorrow that are not within the new guidelines, will need to be rescheduled.
For any questions regarding the IWebVisit system, please contact IWeb at IWebVisit.com.
NEW VISITATION PROGRAM
COVID-19 has been a unique and ever changing situation and we are aware of the difficulties and strain the suspension of our programs and visitation has placed on the inmates, their families, and their friends. Since March of 2020, when we realized this would be a long term event, we have been working with our inmate telephone provider for a viable alternative to onsite visitation. Unfortunately, these plans slowed and then eventually halted as we faced the many challenges of having a number of inmates and staff test positive for the virus.
However, since that time, we have been able to move forward and are pleased to announce the launch of a web-based visitation system that allows for both, onsite and remote, visits. This system allows visitors the ability to visit with their loved ones from the safety and comfort of their home, utilizing a computer, tablet, or any Android smart phone. (IPhones do not currently work with this system, but we are told they are working on a solution to this)
Effective, July 13, 2020, we will resume our visitation program, utilizing the IWeb Visit system for remote visits only. We will continue to monitor and evaluate the situation and will make a decision for onsite visits at a later date.
IWeb Visit was founded in 2009 and is headquartered in Decatur, Alabama. They operate in 16 states from California to New Jersey. Currently, they serve 30 facilities across the nation and are adding 2-3 facilities per month. IWeb Visit focuses on increasing family contact with inmates and reducing recidivism as well as streamlining the overall visitation process by working closely with jail staff and administrators.
To accommodate this new system, a few changes have been made to our schedule and operations. Visitors will be required to register and schedule all visitations a minimum of one (1) day in advance by going to the website, https://iwebvisit.com. Visitors are no longer required to be on an approved visitor list for each inmate and there are no restrictions to the number of remote visits you can have each week, as long as there is a time slot available.
VISITATION CAN TAKE PLACE DAILY DURING THREE TIME SLOTS 8AM-1130AM 1PM-430PM 6PM-930PM
Visits are in fifteen (15) minute increments and up to three (3) in a row may be scheduled at a time to allow for a total visit of forty five (45) minutes. There will be a fee of $4.50 for each fifteen (15) minute visit and it must be paid utilizing the website when the visitor schedules their visit. This fee is paid to IWeb to operate their system and RSW Regional Jail receives no revenue from this service. Visitors must also understand that by utilizing this system, they agree to the terms and rules of IWeb Visit. In addition, all visitation policies set forth by RSW Regional Jail are applicable.
Any inappropriate content that is observed will result in the inmate losing their visitation privilege for a period of thirty (30) days. Subsequent offenses will result in a loss of visitation for a period of sixty (60) and then (90) days.
