As of August 5th, 2023 the Lee County Jail will resume PUBLIC ON SITE VISITATION for individuals in custody. Services were previously suspended due to the Illinois Governor’s Executive Order which prohibited NON-ESSENTIAL TRAVEL that included visiting individuals in custody. The availability of services will continue to be reviewed based on the current COVID exposure levels and its' effect on the public.

The use of “Home/Remote Visits” through Securus Technologies still continues as an additional option with an associated fee. Either option requires you to register and schedule the appointments.

The Public On-Site Video Visitation System will be available on Saturday OR Sunday’s from 7:30am till 11:00am and 12:30pm till 4:30pm. An individual in custody will only be allowed (1) Public On-Site Video Visitation per weekend. The Public On-Site Video Visitation is for friends/families. The individual in custody has the right to refuse any scheduled visits at any time for any reason.
