How We Serve You
Visitation Information

The Sandoval County Detention Center staff works to ensure the safety of the community, staff, and inmate population. It securely houses the incarcerated and provides them with services and medical care. Only personnel and vendors essential to the SCDC’s day-to-day operations are permitted into the facility.

Only video visitation between SCDC detainees and their visitors is allowed. Sandoval County's video system provides remote access from any computer or mobile device, and there also is a video console located in the Detention Center. This technology gives families and visitors from anywhere in the country the ability to be together with their loved ones who are incarcerated. Video visitation also increases public safety and reduces staffing costs.
