Visiting Information

General Information

The Anoka County Jail is still impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. In order to ensure the safety of the public, detainees, staff and professional visitors we will continue to follow recommended safety precautions until further notice. This includes a cap of 10 people in the lobby at any one time, maintaining social distancing and the requirement that visitors wear appropriate facial coverings. See below for details specific to inmate visitation.


  • Professional Visits – On-site visits by attorneys and other required professionals are discouraged. It is recommended such visits take place by phone or video. If an on-site visit is necessary, it will be a non-contact visit through glass.  Please note, due to the limited number of video systems and non-contact rooms, there may be a delay in setting up a meeting.
  • Social Visits – On-site video visits between inmates and outside visitors remains suspended at this time. Off-site video visits can still be conducted remotely via our service agreement with ICSolutions. You can find further information about that and sign up for visits here
