Inmate Visitation for Family and Friends
Special Announcement (July 6, 2023): The Adult Detention Center is transitioning to video visitation.
Beginning July 12, visitation at the Alexandria Adult Detention Center will be provided through secure video access.
Family and friends will need to register and be approved by ASO staff before scheduling visits. Please note if you signed up before July 7, 2023, you may need to register again.
Inmates may have up to two 20-minute video visits a week. One visit is provided at no cost and the second is $5, payable by the visitor. Remote visits can take place wherever the visitor can connect to the internet.
