- Gloucester County Jail
- Inmate Visitation
The Sheriff Office is committed to ensuring inmates maintain contact with their family and friends during their period of incarceration. In order to expedite this process, each inmate receives a Visitation List Form. The inmate may place up to three people on the form that they have made arrangements with to visit them that week. Any alteration of the form, or if more than three names are listed, will result in the form being considered void. The jail cannot give out the personal information of the inmate by telling anyone over the telephone who a particular inmate has on their visitation form.
