Frequently Asked Questions About Video Visitation at Barren County Detention Center

On Wednesday, March 8 the Barren County Detention Center will begin using a "Video Visitation" system for all friends and family visits with inmates.  The following are answers to our most frequently asked questions.

Q: How does the new video visitation system work?
A: Inmates will visit with friends and family from a video visitation terminal in their housing unit.  Friends and family will visit from a similar visitation terminal in the public visitation room located in the administration lobby.  These visits are referred to as "onsite" or "public" visitations.
The new system will allow visitors to still come to the jail for visitation and it will now also allow friends and family to conduct a "remote" or "at-home" visit from home using a computer, webcam and high speed internet connection an a smartphone/tablet  'app'.

Q: How often can I visit inmates?
A:  Each inmate is allowed two 20 minute visit from friends or family members weekly at the jail. Inmates can have unlimited remote visits from home.

Q: Do I need to come at a certain time to see my inmate?
A: Friends and family can schedule visits with inmates during any time visitation is allowed.   Public visitation hours are:

Monday - Wednesday 8-11 am Noon - 4 pm  
Thursday 8-11 am Noon - 4 pm 5-7 pm
Friday - Saturday 8-11 am Noon - 4 pm  

Q: Do I need to schedule my visit or can I just show up?
A: Visits need to be scheduled at least 24 hours in advance.  You will need to use the website www.videovisitanywhere.com.  You will then create a free user account (if you don't already have one) and submit that for approval by the facility.  Once you are approved, you can then log back in and click on "Schedule a Visit" at the bottom of the page and follow the steps listed.
When you schedule your visit, be sure to write down the following items:

  1.  The date and time of your visit
  2. The six digit PIN number because you will enter this at the time of your visit
  3. The video terminal you are assigned to (I.E. Vis_1, Vis_2, etc.)

Q: Is there a charge for video visitation?
A: Each inmate will continue to receive two free onsite visits each week.

Inmates can now receive unlimited remote I at-home visits each week.  "At-home" visits will have a promotional price of $5 for 20 minutes for the first few months.

A: On-site Public visitation hours are

Monday - Wednesday 9:00 am 1:00 pm

Friday - Saturday 9:00 am 1:00 pm  

At-home visits can be scheduled every day of the week from 7:00 am - 10:00 pm.

You can also use a computer with high speed internet access and a webcam.  You will need to do the following:
