Visiting Days

Inmates in the Genesee County Jail are allowed to have people visit them one day a week.  Each inmate can have two (2) visitors during each of their  two -15 minute visit periods.  All people wishing to visit an inmate must be on the inmate's Visitors List  prior to the Visit Day. Only an inmate in the Jail can add or delete someone from their Visitors List.  You should make contact with an inmate either by phone or mail to ensure you are on their Visitor List (see below).  You must be at least 17 years old and a have photo ID to visit an inmate.  Children under 17 must be accompanied by an adult.  Children count as a visitor, so one child and one adult is the most that can visit at one time.

     An Inmate's Visit Day is determined by which Pod they are housed in the Jail.

  •   Mondays:       Pods: 3-A, 3-B, 3-C and 3-D (females)

  •   Tuesday:        Pods: 4-A, and 4-B.

  •   Wednesday:  Pods: 4-C and 4-D.

  •   Thursday:      Pods: 5-B, 5-C, and 5-D. 

  •   Fridays:          No Visits.  Church Services Only.

No Visits on Saturday or Sunday.

Inmates must be assigned to a Pod before they are allowed visits.  It generally takes 3 days of being in Jail before an inmate is assigned to a Pod.

    To contact the inmate Visitors Desk call 810-257-3557.
