Due to the current spread of COVID-19, inmate visitation will be suspended until further notice.
Inmate’s can be visited once they have been moved to a housing unit or after 24 hours in custody—whichever comes first.
On May 18th, 2020, the Henderson Detention Center's lobby will re-open. Our mission is to create an environment within our lobby, this safe for all visitors who enter through its doors. Social distancing, proper sanitation and the donning of proper personal protective equipment will be utilized to ensure the safety of all staff and visitors as we continue to navigate through the COVID-19 pandemic.
To facilitate the practice of social distancing, appointments are necessary to schedule visitation. To schedule a visit, call 702-267-5245. Facility staff will advise the visitations times available. Please arrive for your scheduled appointment on time, so that we can properly accommodate the visitation schedule for that date. If a visitor is late, the visit will be canceled and will need to be rescheduled.
To allow for proper social distancing, only two visitors will be allowed per visit. This could be two adults, or one child and one adult. Anyone entering the lobby will be required to wear a facial covering of their choosing. If a visitor does not have one, a facial covering will be provided.
Inmates are permitted to have two visits per week. Visiting hours are 8:00am to 11:00am or 1:00pm to 4:00pm Wednesday thru Sunday*. Each visit is twenty minutes long. Visits may be recorded.
Visitors must present valid, government issued identification and must be dressed appropriately:
- Shirt and shoes must be worn at all times
- Shirts and blouses must be able to be tucked in. No “spaghetti straps”, tank tops, tube tops or sleeveless shirts.
- No short-shorts or miniskirts. Underwear must be completely concealed.
- No profane, sexually explicit or derogatory language or graphics on clothing.
- No hats, ball caps, skull caps or “du-rags”
Cell phones, purses, backpacks, food and drink are not allowed in the lobby. You may not visit an inmate against whom you have taken a protective order. *Please note that kitchen workers may not receive visits while they are in the kitchen serving or handling food. It is up to the kitchen worker to communicate this to family and/or friends.
Visitation will also be available on the following holidays: New Year’s Day, Martin Luther King, Jr.’s birthday, Washington’s Birthday, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Columbus Day, Veteran’s Day, Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day. Visits on a holiday will count toward the inmate’s limit of two visits per week.
“Availability of visitation is ultimately based on operational demands of the facility. There may be times of delay for your visit, both personal and professional, that may not be able to be avoided. Your patience is appreciated.”
