CHILDREN IN THE WAITING AREA
Effingham County Sheriff's Office is a government office building. For safety and security reasons, children will not be allowed to run free in the waiting areas. Disruptive, ill-mannered or misbehaving children will not be tolerated. The accompanying adult is responsible for the behavior of the children. Adults will be directed to remove disruptive children out of the building. Thank you for cooperating with Jail Staff on this issue.
OUT OF TOWN VISITORS
In the case of visitors who must travel over fifty miles and having verifiable proof of the distant address, an extended visitation of up to forty-five minutes will be provided.
Although the Office of the Sheriff sympathizes, it is the safety policy of the Sheriff's Office that inmates ARE NOT authorized release to attend funeral services nor are escorts provided. The Sheriff's Office does not transport State Prisoners from State facilities to funeral service nor provides escorts.
Attorneys may make an appointment for security and logistical reasons. Identification will be requested in the form of a current Georgia Bar Card and driver's license or official picture identification.
Any person posing as an attorney in order to gain access to an inmate will be prosecuted.
