IMPORTANT MESSAGE FOR VISITING
As part of CCSO’s COVID-19 prevention efforts, normal visiting will be canceled until further notice. CCSO values visitation as an essential part of rehabilitation, but at this time the Sheriff’s Office must make difficult decisions in order to protect the health and wellness of all who work in and visit our county jail.
