The goal of the detention center is to ethically and legally provide a secure, sanitary and safe place of pre-trial incarceration in the most efficient and cost effective manner possible, while ensuring inmates receive humane, respectful and professional treatment from detention personnel. Detention administration assures continued oversight and compliance with standards set forth by the State and Local Jail Standards, while providing realistic career development, strategic planning, training and safety for management and staff personnel.
Generally, an inmate detained in the Spartanburg County Detention Facility (jail) is granted one (1) hour of visitation per week, unless such privilege has been restricted as noted above. To provide the inmate with an opportunity to visit with friends and relatives as well as maintain a safe and secure environment, each inmate housing unit will be assigned a specific day of the week for visitation. Each assigned visitation day will rotate weekly so the same housing unit will not be restricted to just one particular day of the week. An officer will come to each inmate's housing unit on Saturday and Sunday of each week with a list of available time slots. Each inmate will be asked to select one (1) time slot from the available slots with the understanding that due to limited visiting facilities; the number of inmates housed in the facility; and other factors, that there will be times that a particular time slot that an inmate desires may not always be available.
