The Dallas County Sheriff’s Department leads the Community Supervision and Corrections Department (CSCD) in Dallas County. CSCD is a professional criminal justice agency responsible for serving the public under the criminal judiciary system. There are six correctional facilities under the supervision of the Dallas County Sheriff’s Department, which house more than 7,500 inmates. The self-sufficient Dallas county jail facilities house inmates who are awaiting court, awaiting transfer to other facilities and those ordered to appear in court by another detention facility. The Dallas County inmate search database offers unlimited general information about an inmate’s arrest, charge(s), and bond amount. The website also provides visitors with information regarding visitation policies.
Visitors must arrive at least 30 minutes before the end of the visiting hours to ensure ample time for processing. Visits are for a maximum of 20 minutes. No more than two adults can visit an inmate at one time under normal circumstances. Visits could be interrupted at any time in case of an emergency.
Visits outside normal visitation hours and for an extended time for persons who have traveled long distances may be requested in advance. Inmates can send an Inmate Request Form to the Detention Shift Supervisor, or visitors can call (940) 349-1700 and ask to speak to the jail administrator’s office.
Attorneys and other official visitors may visit at any time. Inmates may refuse to see any visitor. A visitor may visit an unlimited number of times on the visitation day and times designated, but may visit only once with the same inmate.
