How to Visit an Inmate at the Tent City Jail

David made this video explaining how to visit an inmate at the Tent City Jail:

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

How to Visit a Male Inmate

If you want to know how to visit a male inmate at the Tent City Jail, you drive down 35th Ave or 27th Ave and continue down this road until you reach Durango. Once you have hit Durango, move toward 29th Ave in between. You will eventually hit Durango and Gibson lane. One of the jails will be on the southwest corner; however, this is the women’s facility. You continue past this and look for Tent City visitation signs. If you follow the signs, you will be led right to the visitation facility. Should you go down a bend and start moving west, you have gone too far; that is where you find the Tent City Jail itself and the parking lot by the Tower’s Jail.

How to Visit a Female Inmate

In order to visit a female inmate, you check in at Estrella Jail. This is at Gibson lane and Durango. You will find it located at 2939 West Durango Ave. If you have questions, you can call the Sheriff’s Information Management at 602-876-0322. For more general questions, call 602-876-1735. You must have a valid ID on you. You cannot use swap meet cards, Sam’s Club IDs or similar IDs. Furthermore, you cannot have spent jail time in Maricopa county in the last 12 months.

Visitation Hours at Tent City

The visitation hours for Tent City are strict. You can only visit on Monday and Sunday from 8am to 8pm for Tent City. The last sign up can be made at 7:15pm. When you speak to your loved one, you will be speaking through a video screen, which is where you pick up a phone and talk through plexiglass.
