Schedule a Visit

All visitations for the Denver Sheriff Department must be scheduled through Securus. This includes visits scheduled for the Denver Detention Center (DDC) and the Denver County Jail (COJL).

We do not offer in-person visits at this time. Visits are conducted through video only, either in the jail lobby (referred to as video visitations) or remotely.

Step 1.Create an Account

Already have one? Great, skip to step 2! 

If you're new to Securus, the first step is to set up a new account on the Securus website. You can also do this from a designated terminal in the lobby of the DDC or COJL. If you need assistance navigating the Securus website, please visit the Securus Customer Care page for guidance.

Step 2.Video or Remote?

You can either schedule a video visitation that takes place in the DDC or COJL lobby or a video visitation from a remote location.

Going with a remote video visitation? Remote video visitations allow family and friends to conduct video visits from anywhere using the Securus app on a computer, tablet, or mobile phone. Remote video visits are $8.99 + tax for a 30 minute visit and visitation hours vary by location. To learn more about remote video visitations, check out the Securus website or call 1-877-578-3658.

Step 3.Prepare for Your Visit 

Bring a valid ID (i.e., not expired) to present at time of check-in. Acceptable forms of ID include:

  • U.S. Driver License or state issued Identification Card
  • Active U.S. Military ID
  • Passport
  • Consulate ID

Be punctual:

  • Arrive 15 minutes prior to your visit to check-in, locate a terminal, and log into the system (you may log into the system for the visit one minute prior to the scheduled time)

No rescheduling:

  • Visitation windows are not moveable once scheduled
  • If you arrive 10 minutes late to a 30-minute visit, only 20 minutes for visitation will remain

If an inmate misses a visit:

  • If the visit is not cancelled prior to being absent, the inmate will still be charged a visit against their 2 visit per week allotment
