King County inmates may be housed in the Maleng Regional Justice Center (MRJC) located in Kent or at the King County Correctional Facility (KCCF) located in Seattle. Do you need to locate an adult inmate? Use our Jail Inmate Lookup Service.

Our goal is to keep these disruptions to visiting hours to a minimum, but changes and cancellations to visiting hours could occur at any time, based on staff availability.

In-person visitation at both the Seattle and Kent locations may be affected, and the video visitation kiosks in the reception area in Kent may be impacted. However, video visitation using your own computer, tablet, or smart phone will still be available.

We encourage you to use the video visitation option. Contact Securus Video Visitation at 1-877-578-3658 or https://securustech.net/en/web/securus/videovisitation to learn more and sign up for “Anywhere Video Visitation.”

Jail staff will admit visitors on a first-come, first-served basis. People in custody can see one adult visitor at a time. No children are allowed. 

If you know the location of the person you intend to visit, please see the schedule below. You may call 206-296-1234 for further information about visiting times and rules.

By setting up a pre-paid account at www.accesscorrections.com external link , you can send emails to adult inmates at both the Seattle and Kent facilities. The emails you send will be routed through our detention facility mail rooms and screened/approved by mail staff. Once approved, the email will be forwarded to the inmate. We anticipate this process will reduce the amount of time it takes for inmates to receive the mail you send to them.

The cost of sending an email is set by Access Corrections and will be equivalent to the cost of an envelope plus postage.

Inmates will not have the option of returning your email or forwarding to anyone else. They will still be required to correspond by writing letters and sending them through the mail (USPS).

Inmates can receive email via Secure Access Email or letters via the U.S. Postal Service. For email instructions, visit www.accesscorrections.com

Envelopes should be addressed as follows. Note: The booking (B/A) number can be found using our jail inmate lookup service.

Third-party mail (sending or receiving a letter to family or friends asking them to forward a letter to another inmate) is considered inmate-to-inmate correspondence and is prohibited and may cause the loss of mail privileges.
