Participation in video visitation is a privilege, not a right. Both attorney (visitor) and inmate are expected to conduct themselves in an appropriate fashion at all times during a video visit. For attorney/client visitation, the visit must be official in nature. Official attorney visits are not recorded and the conversations are not monitored.
Harris County reserves the right to deny, cancel or terminate a video visit prior to or during a video session based upon attorney or inmate misconduct. Harris County also reserves the right to restrict visitor from participating in all future use of the system.
Visitation is a voluntary event; the Harris County Sheriff’s Office (HCSO) will not compel an inmate to participate in a visit. Harris County assumes no financial or other liability for failure to complete a scheduled video visit.
The Harris County Sheriff’s Office may revise the off-site video visitation rules as necessary without advance notice.
