New Sign-Up System for Visiting Inmates, Less Arguments
ALACHUA COUNTY - A new sign up system at the Alachua County Jail may make it easier for people trying to visit inmates.
The old system was on a first-come, first-served basis.
This often caused arguments - inmates would have multiple people who wanted to visit them and they did not always get along.
The new system is done on the computer - visitors can sign up on the Alachua County Sheriff's Office website or at a kiosk at the jail, or at the Sheriff's Office.
Officers also say the new system will save time - "it just prevents people from driving all the way here and not being able to visit."
Inmates have two hours per week for visitation, each visit lasts an hour at a time.
