512 Facility Jail Visitation

Through GTL, Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office will be offering both Remote video visitation and Onsite video visitation services for incarcerated friends/family. The Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office requires all visitors to have a GTL account to receive a Remote or schedule an Onsite visit.

Getting Started:
In order to receive a remote or schedule an Onsite visit, you must first have a validated GTL account. For Remote Visits, please create your GettingOut account, or sign in.


You must sign up with a valid email address in order to confirm your account and receive updates about your visits.

Ways to Visit*

Remote

  • All Remote video visits take place through GTL’s GettingOut video visitation service and cost $0.25 per minute. These visits are only charged for visit time actually used.
  • Only the inmate can initiate a video visit with the on demand “Visit Now” feature.  Friends and family cannot pre-schedule video visits from outside the facility by using “Visit Now” in the system – video visits can only be initiated by an inmate.

You can receive video visits from anywhere outside the jail with the GettingOut Visits mobile app for Android or iOS.

Onsite

  • All onsite video visits are currently suspended.
For Professionals Only:

Remote visitation for attorneys, case managers, medical officials or other professions whose video visits with an inmate should not be recorded and/or charged, must go to a MCSO Visitation Center, either 4th Avenue Jail or Lower Buckeye Jail, with your State Bar card and a government-issued ID to verify your status as an attorney visitor.

Property/Money Releases

Inmates must release all personal property when requesting a property release. The inmate can release his/her property to anyone they choose including their attorney, public defender, probation officer, bondsman or caseworker. The property release, also known as Tank Order, must be signed and issued by the inmate. The person picking up the property will need to go to the Durango Jail, where the inmate is incarcerated, pick up the Tank Order, and take it to the 4th Ave Jail where all personal property is stored. The jail will then release the property. Anyone picking up property will be required to provide a valid government issued picture identification card, such as a Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) identification card/driver’s license that is current and valid. An Immigration card (work visa card, or resident alien card) presented with a DMV card is acceptable.

Inmates can release all the money in an inmate account without approval up to 72 hours after booking. Requests for a money release after 72 hours in custody must be approved by the Jail Commander or his designee.

Inmate Medication

Individuals who are arrested and taking Doctor prescribed medications must advise the medical staff upon initial booking of the type and dosages of what they are taking. Medications from home or purchased outside of the jail will not be accepted into the facility for the inmate to use.

Child Custody

When a parent or guardian is arrested, the arresting officer will attempt to locate a natural parent or relative, where the child/children can be taken. When no relative is located, Child Protective Services (CPS) will be contacted. Child Protective Service Hotline: is available 24 hours a day, every day of the year, at 1-888-767-2445.

If a family member contacts this number looking for Child/Children in custody of CPS, the CPS representative on the phone will take their information. Someone from a CPS office will contact the relative/relatives and meet with them as soon as possible.

Placing Money on Inmate Books

Money mailed to inmates may be in an envelope addressed to the jail and must state the inmates name and booking number. “FOR DEPOSIT ONLY” must be clearly marked on the outside of the envelope, and be sure to include the “Return Address” on the mailing envelope.

Money may be placed on an inmate’s “money account” by mailing to the jail a Cashiers Check (official check), or U.S. Postal or Western Union money order with the inmates’ name and booking number. Also acceptable are checks payable in U. S. funds issued by local, state, and federal government agencies, or by privately run jails or prisons, which are payable to the inmate. The full amount of the check must be deposited to the inmate’s fund account. Do NOT mail cash.

A person may also place money on an inmate’s “money account” books by presenting U.S. Currency, Cashiers Check (official check), or a U.S. Postal or Western Union money order with the inmates’ name and booking number to the visitation officer during the regular visiting hours. The person needs proper and current identification. Inmate funds are accepted at any Sheriff’s Office jail for deposit, or visitors may also use the touch pay kiosks located in the jail visitation lobbies. Wet, soiled, or altered forms of money will be rejected.

After visitation hours, you may deposit monies at the Bonds and Fines public window located at the 4th Avenue Jail, 201 S. 4th Avenue, Phoenix, Arizona 85003.

During the time the window at Bond and Fines is closed, you may also use one of the touch pay kiosk systems locating in various jail locations, via the telephone at 1-866-355-9593 or via the internet at www.touchpaydirect.com or https://maricopa.touchpaydirect.net. You must provide the inmates name and MCSO booking number. Touchpay kiosks currently accept Visa/Mastercard and funds are usually posted within 1 hour to the inmate’s account. There is a fee for this service.
