Visitation/Communication with Inmates:
The Geary County Detention Center uses state of the art video visitation equipment while in custody. This accomplishes several things within the jail, such as high quality monitoring and recording of all visitation sessions and minimal staff interaction to conduct the sessions. It also provides inmates and their families a quality system to conduct their visits as well as open scheduling for the inmate’s family. Please call for visitation times – (785)-762-6583
