  • Onsite visits – this option will allow professionals to utilize an onsite visiting kiosk to visit with detainees. The hours of availability are limited to business hours. There is no fee for this service.  

All professionals wishing to see a detainee, either remotely or on site, must fill out and return the “KCSO Attorney Remote Visitation Registration Form" along with a copy of their Driver's License and their current ARDC/BAR card.
