Inmate Visitation

The Scotland County Detention Center will ensure that inmates confined in the Scotland County Detention Center are provided the opportunity to visit with family, friends and professionals during times designated for visiting by the Chief Jail Administrator.  There are currently two (3) different ways to visit inmates incarcerated at our facility, online via the internet, onsite using Homewav, or onsite at the Detention Center seeing the inmate.

All inmate visits at the Scotland County Detention Center are non-contact visits.  Inmate visitation is a privilege and may be denied for disciplinary reasons.  Inmate visits may be restricted consistent with administrative limitations and the need to uphold the safety and security of the facility.


Online Visitation

The Scotland County Detention Center now offers online visitation for inmates incarcerated at our facility via the internet.  This video visit may be conducted from any high-speed internet connection with an available web cam, microphone and speakers.  Inmates are allowed an unlimited number of online visits, providing that there are available visitation time slots.


Video Visit Anywhere

If you have a home computer with the web cam, microphone and speakers you may visit your friend or family from the comfort of your own home for a fee. To do this the inmate will send an invite to your cellular, mobile device or home computer. The link for the invite will come from Homewav.  Once you set up your account, the Jail Administrator will review, approve or deny your request for video visitation.  If approve by the Jail Administrator and accept by you, the video visitation can be conducted at a fee of .45 cent per minute.
