Detainee Visiting Regulations
In 2013, the Kane County Adult Justice Center began utilizing a video visitation system for Detainees to visit with their family and other professionals. For your convenience, an on-line registration and scheduling module has been configured.
Registering For and Scheduling a Visit
The first step in the visitation process is for the Detainee to complete an "Approved Visitors List." The list is comprised of individual names that the Detainee has requested and is allowed to receive visitors.
Only immediate family members on the Detainee's "Approved Visitors List" may visit with a Detainee. These people may include:
- Parents (Father and/or Mother);
- Siblings (Brothers and/or Sisters);
- One (1) Significant Other (this can be any person of the Detainee's choosing, which is not listed above).
Once the Approved Visitors List has been completed, an approved visitor needs to register as a user in the system.
- During the registration process, new users are required to create a username and password.
- Write the username and password down as it
must be retained and cannot be retrieved.
- Service representatives at the Kane County Sheriff's Office cannot retrieve this information for you at a later date.
- A visitation appointment can be made after the registration process is completed.
Visitation Day and Visiting Hours
- Visitation days and hours vary.
- During the scheduling process you will see the available days and times.
- All visits must be scheduled at least seventy-four (72) hours and/or one (3) day in advance.
- Appointments can be scheduled up to one-hundred and sixty-eight (168) hours and/or seven (7) days in advance.
- Visitation may be cancelled and/or altered on Kane County Court Appointed Holidays, for safety and/or security reasons.

Jail Tour Program
The Kane County Sheriff's Office encourages and may grant tours of the Kane County Adult Justice Center to public organizations: youth groups; school and church groups; news and media; and, civic and community leaders.
The primary purpose of the Jail Tour Program is designed for the community to see first-hand the role of law enforcement within the correctional facility. Program guests receive important insight into what it means to be a correctional officer. Criminal Justice students and people interested in a career in law enforcement have found this program particularly useful. The Jail Tour Program fosters a clear understanding of the rewards, challenges, and risks, associated with being a correctional officer. The tours typically last approximately 60 to 90 minutes.
