After careful consideration and guidance from local, state and federal authorities this morning, we are suspending visitation at all our facilities until further notice. We have been strongly advised to limit exposure to the inmates and employees. Video visitation will still be available during this time. Please visit https://www.citytelecoin.com/ for information on video visitation.

We are also suspending fingerprint services and on-site background checks for the general public.
If you require a copy of a complaint report, accident report, or incident report, please email records@leecosheriff.com. They will advise you how you need to provide ID to retrieve your copy. Fees for this service have been waived for this time.

The purpose of the extra precautionary measures is to limit access to large gatherings and groups of people.  I’m asking everyone to take their own steps to prevent being around large groups of people and areas where people could be at risk.  

If you are a sex offender that needs to register, please call 841-9040 to arrange an appointment. No walk-ins will be accepted. No exceptions.
