All visitors are required to present a valid photo ID and be 18 years of age. Visits are around 10-20 minutes in length depending on the inmate’s classification. Two adult visitors may visit an inmate at a time. Up to three children may accompany one adult visitor. However, they need to remain on the lap or right beside the adult visitor at all times.

All visitors are subject to search. Weapons, purses, handbags, and electronic devices are not permitted in the visitation area. All visitors must be appropriately attired.

Family and friends can deposit money into an inmate’s account by mailing money orders to the jail in care of the inmate or bringing cash to the jail lobby window.

Sex Offender Search and Lookup:

Federal law stipulates that a sex offender needs to provide his information to local law enforcement so that it may be recorded in the state and national sex offender registries. A person who has been convicted of a sexually oriented offense such as child pornography, sexual assault, and prostitution is classified as a sex offender. Residents of Tipton County can find out if any sex offenders are living in their neighborhood by checking the registry at

Make sure to read the disclaimer before using the database. Not all offenders obey the registration law. There may be some records in the database that no longer have updated information and may only show last known addresses.

Bail and Bondsman

Bail is required by the court before it will grant temporary freedom to an inmate awaiting trial. This money will be used to help ensure that the inmate will return to court when the trial begins. Bail is revoked and forfeited if the inmate does not appear in court as promised.

A defendant who does not have enough money for bail can get a bondsman to help secure his release. A bondsman typically charges 10% of the bail amount as his fee. This cannot be refunded.
