How to Visit an Inmate at the Lower Buckeye Jail

Great Information when visiting an inmate at the Lower Buckeye Jail:

**Please note, we are not the jail, if you are looking for the status of an inmate, call (602) 876-0322

Visiting the Lower Buckeye Jail

No one may visit a Maricopa County Jail if he or she has been incarcerated during the past year. Illegal aliens and anyone convicted of a felony are also prohibited from visiting. If you qualify to visit an inmate, however, you will want to know a few details before going to the Lower Buckeye Jail. Here is the MCSO’s page on the Lower Buckeye Jail.

Opened in 2005, the Lower Buckeye Jail is the biggest detention center in the entire state of Arizona. It can hold up to 2,440 inmates and has separate housing for juveniles. Before you visit an inmate, be sure to call the jail to check if any visitation restrictions are in place. Inmates can only see visitors once every seven days for a thirty-minute period and may not see more than two visitors at once, not counting children under the age of twelve months. Children under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.

Dress codes are enforced at all Maricopa County Jails, so be sure to dress conservatively. When you arrive, you will need to rent a locker for all of your personal effects, including any glasses, purses, necklaces, rings, or wallets. Bring a valid, government-issued picture ID. This might include a resident alien card with DMV card, a work visa card, or a current driver’s license. Children aged 14 to 17 must also present ID. A student-issued ID, DMV ID card, or driver’s license is acceptable.

Hours of Visitation

Know the actual first and last name of the inmate you plan to visit, because you will need to put this information on the form when you visit. A booking number would be helpful as well, but it is not required. Plan your visit between the hours of 8 AM and 8 PM on either Sunday or Monday. Visits are not permitted at any other day or time.

If you or the inmate you are visiting needs legal representation, please give us a call (or email) at (602) 307-0808 to schedule a free case review.
