How to Visit an Inmate at the Towers Jail


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

Visitation Process at the Towers Jail in Phoenix

The Towers Jail, which was built in 1982, is so named because of its six tower units. The jail can hold up to 1,080 inmates.

Who Can Visit?

Most adults or children accompanied by an adult may visit an inmate in the Towers Jail. The exception is anyone who has been convicted of a felony, entered the country illegally, or been incarcerated during the past year.

Do I Have To Show ID?

You will have to show a valid ID. The ID must be current, issued by the government, and contain your photo. A driver’s license or a work visa card are both good choices. Children aged 14-17 who do not have a driver’s license may present a school-issued photo ID. Children under the age of 14 do not have to present identification.

How Should I Dress?

Dress modestly. Revealing clothing is not permitted.

What Should I Bring?

You may not bring anything inside when you visit an inmate. You will have to leave any belongings you bring with you in a locker. Even sunglasses and jewelry will have to be locked up prior to your visit.

When Should I Visit?

Visitors are permitted only on Sundays and Mondays. Visiting hours begin at 8 AM, and the last visitor must sign-in by 7:15 PM.

How Often Can I Visit?

Keep in mind that each inmate is permitted only one half-hour visit every seven days. Inmates also cannot see more than two visitors at a time, including children over the age of one. (Children under the age of one do not count as visitors.)

How Do I Sign In?

You will need to complete a form in the lobby before visiting your inmate. Be sure to use the real, legal name of the person you are visiting. Nicknames, slang, and gang symbols will not be permitted. If you know the booking number of your inmate, include that information as well.
