Family members and friends of inmates at the Wayne County Jail can now speak with their loved ones through a computer or Android device, without having to come to the jail.

The Wayne County Sheriff’s Office has installed a remote video visitation system that allows anyone to communicate with an inmate from any computer or Android device, that has a high-speed internet connection.

Visitors have always communicated with inmates through a video system in the lobby of the Sheriff...’s Office. Visiting from home will allow for families who live far away or just cannot make it to the jail ample opportunity to visit when they can. It will also decrease wait times and add about 54 hours of additional visitation time.

"I feel one of the best features is families no longer need to bring their children to the jail for a visit. They can stay where the kids feel safe and at home. When an inmate comes to jail it also hurts his/her family children and spouse. They no longer get to see them." – Clayton (IT Manager)

The system cost $23,000.00 to install and will be paid from insurance money received due to lightning damage of our old system.
