As we welcome the public’s interest and concerns regarding inmates at our Custody Facilities, it is our intent to establish a visiting process that is conducted in as accommodating a manner as possible, subject to the need to maintain order, the safety of persons, the security of the institution/facility, and required inmate activities and operations.
MCJ and PDC public visitors must arrive and check-in with visiting staff at least 60 minutes before the actual start time of your scheduled visit. TTCF and CRDF 30 minutes, and LCMC and all Sheriff Stations at least 45 minutes before the actual start time. If visitor is late and cannot be checked-in by staff, scheduled visit will be subject to cancellation and charged against the inmates visitation quota. Visiting Center hours vary and appointments are subject to cancellation at any time and must be made on-line. Documentation of minors accompanied by Parent or Legal Guardian must be presented to the visiting staff upon check-in.
All Public Visits are by Appointment Only and visitor registration is required.
Professionals, public visitors for inmates located in the Correctional Treatment Center, or newly booked persons at our Sheriff Stations are allowed to visit without an appointment. Please confirm with the Visiting Center or Sheriff Station for availability before arriving.
If you are on Probation/Parole or visiting a High-Power Inmate, you will be required to complete a pre-approval form prior to your visit. If this is an ADA, technical matter, or need further assistance making a reservation, please e-mail or call us at IVVSPublicHelpdesk@lasd.org or 213-680-IVVS(4887) Monday-Friday, 8am-4pm.
