Multnomah County Oregon Jail Visitation

Multnomah County Oregon Jail Visitation 2017-04-07T20:45:49+00:00

Multnomah County Jail visitation details depend on the facility where a given inmate is being held (there are two “jails”). Multnomah County Jail visitation rules have also been in transition the last few years because the Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office has been phasing-out in-person visitation and limiting visitation to through video screens only (with some exceptions for attorney conferences and visitation with other professionals). In 2013, Securus Technologies, Inc. entered into a four-year contract with the Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office to provide visitation through video and it’s expected that all in-person visitation will eventually be prohibited.
