On-site visits are conducted by video (Contact visitation is not allowed). Remote (video) visitation through our inmate visitation system (CIDNET) is also available, which requires purchasing data through CIDNET. The data purchase needs to be completed by interested parties not confined to the jail. Interested parties can find information on the CIDNET Public Portal website.
The Marshall County Sheriff's Office will not be responsible for visitor’s personal property.
The Sheriff, Chief Jailer or designee may suspend, deny or terminate visits if there is suspicion or belief of potential harm to a visitor, detainee, or staff; or safety and security of the facility is in jeopardy.
Potential visitors must first provide a copy of their state-issued photo ID, which is then sent electronically to the facility through the CIDNET public portal. A response notification is then sent through the portal upon approval or denial of the visitor request, which may take 3-5 business days.
Only persons who have been approved are allowed to visit. Any other person accompanying a visit is subject to the same approval process.
Approved visitors are required to request visits at least 24 hours in advance. Visitors may request a reservation by either calling the jail at (641) 754-6380 or they may electronically submit a request through the CIDNET public portal (Preferred method).
Visitation hours are 1:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. daily. Certain hours may not be available due to jail service, such as meal times.
Visits are not allowed to exceed thirty (30) minutes.
A minor visitor under the age of 16 must be your son, stepson, daughter, stepdaughter, brother, sister, or grandchild. You must provide legal proof of the relationship. Their parent or legal guardian must accompany them.
Any visitor from the age of 16 to 18 must be approved by their parent or legal guardian before being allowed to visit.
The jail staff may monitor visitor and inmate conduct during visits, which are also recorded. Inappropriate conduct may result in restrictions, suspension, or termination of visiting privileges.
