"These new hours and the extra day provide families additional times to meet with their loved ones and hopefully prove more convenient to visitors as well," said Sheriff Timothy Howard. "Visitation is important to the inmates and aids in their good behavior which in turn makes the environment safer for Deputies, Correctional Officers, staff and inmates."

The correctional facility's schedule and the holding center's schedule now have the same hours to avoid confusion about visiting schedules.
