Professionals Accessing Visitation

As we emerge from COVID please do not just walk into visitation as we want to control capacity.    Please call the visitation officer at Ext 2837 to:

  1. See if there is immediate capacity for a walk in or to schedule a face to face.  
  2. See about a Zoom Visit.  Professionals can create a meeting by inviting the following email address Juvenile_Visitation_Room@Snoco.org.  If you do this, please follow up with a call to the visitation officer so they know there is something new on the calendar.
  3. See about a No Contact Visit (Through glass).  Priority for these are for attorneys prior to morning hearings.
