He's been contemplating his decision for the last several months while spending his time in Sarasota, Florida and still collecting his $180,000....very smart man to get away with that and still have the Board President say he's great!

You're 100% right that it would change what some people do, including - it seems - yourself. And do you know what that would result in? Lower costs to the city. Fewer pick-ups due to people doing it themselves means lower vehicle maintenance. Lower salary expense due to decreased hours. Yes, some people would stop using the service, which reduces the EXPENSE of providing that service. The point…

Adams County Jail implements new visiting system

11 months, 3 weeks ago by Denise Donley

Loved ones can now chat online with those lodged in the ACJ

Adams County Jail has begun implementing Electronic Visitation. 

Electronic visitation allows families or friends to video chat online with those lodged in the jail.

Adams County Sheriff Brent Fischer said electronic visitation will improve officer safety.

“Usually on a visitation day we have to move inmates from a section to the visitation room,” said Fischer. “This way we’ll significantly decrease, if not eliminate the inmates we’re moving.”

Fischer said the new system didn't cost the jail, but money won't be coming in either.

“We’re not really seeing any revenue, which people but wonder why, but we’re reaping the benefits of officer safety and the time that’s involved.” 

All visits will also be recorded to allow the Sheriff's Department to monitor information exchanged.

Visits can be scheduled by visiting https://www.securustech.net/videovisitation.

Other new items at the Adams County Jail include commissary kiosks in the jail sections. The items are delivered once a week and include snack packs, e-cigarettes and other assorted items.

The Adams County Jail also recently passed the annual jail inspection for the second year in a row.  Fischer said that’s thanks to the jail staff and administration. However, the Illinois Department of Corrections still strongly encourages the county to pursue re-designing and build a new facility.
