How do I visit someone in jail?

Inmates in Broward County jails may receive visitors once a week for a two-hour period. The inmate will advise you of the visitation schedule.

Due to limited visiting space, only two adults or one minor supervised by a parent may visit during the weekly visiting period. Visitors under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian who must present either a birth certificate or court documentation showing appointment of legal guardianship. Minors must be supervised at all times by the parent or legal guardian. Government issued photo identification and appropriate dress are required.

Visitors may not give anything to -- or take anything from -- an inmate.

For more details on visiting jail inmates, look under the "About BSO" section of this web site.
