The unexpected can happen in the span of a few minutes. If you find that a family member or friend has been taken into custody at the Harris County Jail, there are several ways to locate and get in touch with them.
Locating an Inmate
First and foremost, visit the Harris County Jail website and locate the ‘Jail Info’ tab at the top of the page. Then, you can click the ‘Find Somone in Jail’ link. From here, it is simply a matter of typing the inmate’s name, date of birth, social security number.
You might also be required to enter in an SPN, or service person number, which is often needed to locate the inmate or send them packages or money directly. For the time your loved-one remains in jail, it is a great idea to keep their SPN on hand.
Visiting an Inmate
According to the Harris County Jail website, in-person visitation for inmates is no longer an option until further notice due to the international COVID-19 pandemic.
However, there are other ways to contact your loved-one. For instance, a free calling program has been put in place so that communication can happen. Until visitation resumes, inmates will be able to make or receive five phone calls per week, free of charge.
Furthermore, if your loved one currently resides at the Joint Processing Center, they are eligible to have video visitation with family and friends. For more information and hours of visitation, visit the Harris County Jail website.
