CINCINNATI — The Hamilton County Sheriff's Office recently announced they will be allowing people to virtually visit with inmates being held in the Hamilton County Justice Center starting on Sept. 23.

According to the sheriff's website, people who wish to remotely visit with inmates inside the Justice Center will have to set up an account with Securus. Once the account is set up, people will have to register and schedule times to virtually visit.

Inmates in the Justice Center can receive a free 30-minute visit each week, and remote visitors can buy three more 20-minute extensions per day. The cost per visit outside of the free 30-minute visit is $5.99 per visit.

Virtual visits will be Monday through Saturday from 9 a.m. to 8:40 p.m. and on Sunday from 11 a.m. to 8:40 p.m.

Justice Center inmates have not had visitors, in person or virtual, since March due to the coronavirus pandemic. In-person visitation is still suspended, and it is not known when in-person visitation will resume.
