Scheduling a Visit at the Jail Online
**A Detainee must be in custody for 7 days before he/she may have visitation privileges. If a visit is scheduled before the 7th day, it will be cancelled by a staff member.**
If you have never visited here, you can go directly to the Peoria County Sheriff’s website and register as a new visitor. After you register you will be able to schedule your own visits. To schedule visits, go to the website to register.
If you have visited here previously and would like the ability to schedule visits online, you must first give a Reception Clerk your valid email address. The visiting system will then email you a generated password. To have a password reset, contact a Records Clerk during normal business hours.
Inappropriate behavior or violation of the rules may result in a restriction or denial of visiting privileges.
After 7 days in custody, inmates are allowed one 15-minute visiting session per week. Up to 3 individuals can visit an inmate at each visit. The New Visiting Week Starts Each Sunday.
