Question Anoka County Jail - Visitation, etc., a few questions

Hi all....... my "loved one" is a in holding as a Federal Inmate yet to be sentenced. He was in Sherburne Co. Jail for a year and just yesterday was moved to Anoka County Jail.

First... his sentencing WAS to be 12/21 but it was postponed until ---- don't know. Do YOU think that this transfer to Anoka has anything to do w/ pre-sentencing?

Second... does anybody know the visitation practices at Anoka County Jail? I know the hours per a recorded phone message....but....
Do I have to be put on his list -- AGAIN? (Or can I just call to verify that I'm "still" on his visitation list?)

Are these 'contact visits', behind glass visits, video visits?

ANY and all information would be helpful....before I TRY to travel up there.

Thanks all......... many blessings.

Doni

Default Anybody???

Anybody? A little info would be great. The website isn't very good... and the pre-recorded message doesn't say much.

I don't want to go all the way up there and find out that my name didn't transfer with him... and be turned away.

Thanks friends,

Doni

Usually at the county jails they don't require a list to visit. Do they have any way to get through to a live person? I know they have recorded information on the line for the county jail here and I just hit the intake button to get someone real.
There should be one of our members that is familiar with the jail there.

I just did 4 months in Anoka Cty jail. Males stay in anoka and females go to the jail in Lino Lakes right across the street from the prison. Some males doing sentences go there also and work in the kitchen and laundry. You don't need a visiting list, just call the jail and they have a recorded message telling you what the visiting days and times are and you just show up with a picture ID, go through a metal detector and get a 20 minute visit. Sometimes, if there is a lot of people, you may have to wait to visit. They are behind glass visits (not video like Sherburne).
hope that helps
Diane

Thanks you two.

I'm sorry Rottn... I didn't see your previous message.

Diane -- WELCOME HOME. I'm glad this is over for you!!! Thanks for the info too.

At Sherburne you DID need to be on a "list" to be able to visit. I'm glad I don't need to start THAT again. LOL

My guy is awaiting sentencing on Federal charges.... so it could be anyday. It was originally set for 12/21 but an 11th hour motion postponed this.

I listened to that recording... I think I gotta call it again. It SOUNDED to me like visitation was only on weekends. HUH? That can't be right.

Also.... since he's awaiting sentencing.... I THINK I'd try to call and make sure he's still there the day I went to visit. ~~~ A picture ID... NOT a problem. I'll just bring my Driver's License.

Thanks again for your help. ~~~ Again, Diane... WELCOME HOME!

The other two posts are correct, but have a plan on where to keep your car keys. A couple years ago I went there to visit by then bf, tony, and I had my car keys. Iwas told I couldn't bring them in with me (duh) and the best I could do was leave them in the waiting room and hope to god no one stole my car haha
Just thought I'd let you know (:
Sometimes we forget these little details, don't we?
Or maybe its just me haha
