An approved visitor is defined as: a visitor that submitted an application for visitation, processing has been completed, and approval by institutional staff has taken place. Any approved visitor may request a video visit. Approved visitors must create an account and register with JPay. When family members register to have a video visit, they are prompted by JPay through a series of steps to achieve their visit. Video visits must be scheduled at least 24 hours in advance of the time that they are requesting.
Video visitation kiosks are available to all general population inmates in their housing units. Inmates in restrictive housing (segregation) are not permitted video visits. All visitation rules and regulations for video visitation are the same as institutional visits. Violation of visiting rules during video visitation might result in a loss of visiting privileges.

Video visits might be stopped if a violation of visiting rules is observed
