In-person visitation at the Riley County Jail has been suspended until further notice as precaution due to COVID-19, jail officials said Thursday.
RCPD will continue to provide free video visitation in the police department lobby from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. Staff will be routinely disinfecting the lobby area and visitors are required to wear a face covering. RCPD also says video visitation from your home is also continuing at a reduced rate through Imate Canteen: inmatecanteen.com.
Jail staff are reportedly working to continue to ensure the safety of inmates by planning for potential COVID-19 cases within the jail. Separate housing has been identified to allow both male and female inmates to quarantine if needed. Inmate legal counsel will continue to have access unless the person coming to the jail is exhibiting signs of COVID-19 symptoms or exposure.
