Visits are based on a first come first serve basis. Male and female inmates are not allowed to use the booths at the same time. Inmates are only allowed one visit each week. Visits will be approximately one hour in length. We can only allow 3 to 4 visitors per inmate.  Remember, anyone bringing contraband into the jail or arranging for it to be brought in will be charged.

*Following the lead of a large number of other jails, as of February 1, 1993, the Huron County Jail has adopted a “non-smoking” policy. Smoking material is considered contraband.

Visitors may bring the following items in to an officer for an inmate:

  1. Cash for the inmate’s account (do not send cash in the mail).
  2. Clean clothing for Circuit Court Trial.
  3. Three day supply of clean socks, underwear, and T-shirts can be purchased by the inmate through Commissary. All clothing is washed at the Jail. Female inmates may also purchase bras through Commissary.
  4. Non-pornographic books and magazines are accepted through the mail only. There is a library here at the Jail and it has a large number of paper back books on a variety of topics.

The staff reserves the right to cancel a visit at any time for cause. Disruptive behavior will not be tolerated.

Please understand that due to the large number of inmates that have to be cared for that we need rules and we need to follow these rules in most cases. There are of course exceptions for emergencies, etc., however, as a rule, these and other rules of the Huron County Jail will be followed to the letter. Any request for deviation from the rules should be done so through the Lt/Jail Administrator.

All inmates have “collect call only” telephones in their cells to call out with. Be advised that these telephones are very expensive to use. Inmates may also purchase calling cards through Commissary. The cost for the calling cards is $10. If you wish to setup an inmate phone account, please call 1-888-506-8407.
