Visitation At The Tulsa County Jail
Getting arrested and put into the Tulsa County Jail is not a good thing, no matter who you are. The visitation schedule at the Tulsa County Jail can be tricky. When you are incarcerated, things start to get bad fast. First, when someone is locked up, they can’t get things done like working and making money to pay bills. Fortunately, inmates are allowed to have visitors so that they can get help with things like arranging for bail bonds and legal representation. However, be advised that the Tulsa County Sheriff’s Office has strict rules regarding inmate visitation. And remember, an inmate can only have one visitation per week; so plan each visit carefully.
There are several options to choose from when it comes to visitation for inmates in Tulsa County jail. You can either visit them in person or choose to have a video visit. A video visit can be done either on-site or off-site. Each visitation method has its advantages and disadvantages.
Visit in Person
To visit an inmate in person, you need to fill out a visitor’s request form prior to arranging your visit. You can fill out the form online, download the form and fill it out or get a form from the lobby of the Sheriff’s building. This visit is free but it counts as an inmate’s weekly visit. Also, they do a background check on you. So, don’t try this if you have any outstanding warrants. You can schedule a visit on Sunday and Monday from 8:30 a.m to 3:30 p.m.
You can schedule a free on-site video visit any day between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. These visits are limited to close relatives of the inmate and they count as his weekly visit. Also, you need to fill out the visitor’s form and submit to a background check to use this option.
You can have an off-site video visit through the HomeWav website 7 days-a-week between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 10:00 p.m. The good things about this option are that it is not limited to close relatives, there is no background check and it does not count towards the inmate’s one-visit-per-week limit. The disadvantage is that there is a charge for this service.
