Visitation Information

The Sandoval County Detention Center allows video visitation to its detainees. There is no longer in-person/face-to-face visitation with inmates. Instead, Sandoval County’s video visitation system will allow for remote visitation from any computer or mobile device, as well as visitation from a video console located at the Detention Center. This service will allow those who live outside the detention center’s immediate geographical area to visit their loved ones while incarcerated, will reduce staffing costs, and reduces safety related issues.
