While incarcerated at the Polk County Jail, inmates are encouraged to stay in contact with friends and family. Jail visitation is accomplished by the inmates filling out a visitor request form and listing the persons whom they wish to visit. You can not visit an inmate in the Polk County Jail without being listed on their jail visitation form.
Inmates requesting visitors are required to list the visitors name, address, date of birth and their relationship to the inmate.
Visits are scheduled according to housing assignments and gender. Each inmate can have two (2) one-half hour visits per week.
Please remember -- No children under the age of eighteen are allowed.
Picture identification is required when you come to visit. All visitors are subject to search. If you are asked to submit to a search, you will have the opportunity to leave prior to the search being conducted. All inmate/visitor conversations can be recorded by both audio and/or visual recordings.
Contact visits are not allowed.
Visitors must leave all bags/purses outside the visitation area. Lockers are provided for this purpose in the waiting area.
All visitors will be checked for any national and local wants or warrants.
Visitors are not allowed to bring in or to leave any item(s) that could be classified as contraband. Supplying contraband is a Class "C" Felony (Oregon Revised Statute 162.185).
Attorneys are allowed access at almost any time. Restricted times may include, but are not limited to, official inmate head counts, meal periods or any other facility need in relation to the safety and security of inmates, staff or the facility. You will need to present your I.D. at the time of visitation. Please be sure to have your Oregon Bar Card or Bar Card number available if asked.
Clergy are allowed access at almost any time. Restricted times may include, but are not limited to, official inmate head counts, meal periods or any other facility need in relation to the safety and security of inmates, staff or the facility. All clergy must be pre-approved prior to their first visit. To do so, please contact the "Inmate Program Specialist" at (503) 623-9254. Please be sure to bring a valid picture ID for each visit.
