Visitation Policy

Visitation for juvenile residents detained in the Taylor County Detention Center is as follows:

Visitation


Residents have a right to receive or refuse visitors.  Residents will be allowed to have visits during visitation Monday-Friday for 15 minutes with a parent/legal guardian only.  The parent or legal guardian will be given a copy of the visitation schedule and visitation rules.  Visitors are required to show government-issued photo identification, such as a driver's license.

No cell phones, backpacks, bags, purses, candy, food, or drinks are allowed in the visitation area.

Visitation hours are Monday - Friday, 3:30 p.m. - 6:00 p.m.

The resident's right to visitation will not be used as a form of discipline in any manner.

The resident may have a visit if his/her behavior allows him/her to leave his/her room.  The resident cannot leave his/her room if behavior is combative or threatening, or if the resident is using excessive profanity.

Holidays:  On county holidays, residents will not have a face-to-face visit, but will be allowed a ten minute phone call with an approved parent or legal guardian.
 

Telephone


At this facility, a resident has a right to a telephone call with his/her parent or legal guardian 7 days a week for 10 minutes a day on the days the resident does not have a visit.  The resident cannot have a visit and a telephone call on the same day.

Telephone calls are limited to the individuals that are on an approved list from the resident's Probation Officer.  The resident's parent or legal guardian will have information on the facility's telephone usage policy.

The resident may have a telephone visit if his/her behavior allows him/her to leave his/her room. A resident may not leave his/her room if behavior is combative or threatening, or if the resident is using excessive profanity.
