Video Visitation

Video visitation is a great way to connect with your loved one over the internet, without having to worry about unpredictable crowds and overly busy visitation hours. Each inmate is afforded two video visits per week. You must be on the inmate’s approved visitation list, in order to video visit.  

Visits can be scheduled and paid for in advance, allowing you to visit with inmates at times that are convenient for you.  On-Site visits are free and can be scheduled in advance.  

We offer two types of Video Visitation services:

On-site Video Visits



On-site video visits are conducted at visitation stations at the facility, at no cost.
With these visits, you are still required to travel to the facility. You may schedule a visit from 8:00 am until 8:00 pm, daily.  Each inmate is allowed three visitors at a time, including children.

Through our easy-to-use website, (https://shelbycountytn.gtlvisitme.com/app) you can schedule the visit in advance. Walk-ins are accepted based on time slot availability. Then, conduct the visit in real-time over the internet at our facility.
 

At-Home Video Visits 



These video visits can be conducted at home on your PC computer, laptop or mobile device (Android only).  Save travel expenses, time, long lines and walking from the parking lot with at-home video visits.  Ease stress on children who can now communicate without visiting the facility in person.
