Due to concerns over the coronavirus, all visits to the Hampshire County Jail and House of Correction will be suspended until further notice. This suspension does not apply to attorneys and religious advisers.

We are taking this step out of an abundance of caution and are working to ensure that our inmates have increased access to telephone services so that they may maintain their connection to loved ones. This is a fluid situation and will be assessed on a daily basis. Thank you.

Termination of Visits

A visit can be terminated by the officer in charge of the visiting room if he/she feels there is an immediate danger or threat to the security and safety of the facility, staff, inmates, or inmates’ visitors. All other types of termination of visits that are already in progress shall be terminated by the shift supervisor.

The only person who can cancel an inmate's visit before it has begun is the assistant superintendent or a designee.
