Dane County Jail-Public Visitation Guidelines & Schedule

Visitation at the Dane County Jail is scheduled by the inmate.  Inmates have the opportunity to sign up for two (2) forty-five minute visitation slots per week.  Only scheduled visits will be honored.  No walk-up visits are permitted. It is the responsibility of the inmate to notify their family and friends of the dates and times of their visit.


Visitors must  be on time for their scheduled visits.  If you are 15 minutes or more late, regardless of the reason, your visit will be denied.
