Virtual Visitation will only be granted to attorneys and non-attorney professionals representing individuals in custody currently residing in the Cook County Department of Corrections. Virtual Visitation has been created as a courtesy to provide attorneys/professionals and their clients alternative means to communicate.
Attorneys/Professionals may visit their clients in person at the Cook County Department of Corrections. A licensed attorney may visit in person without scheduling. Other professionals, such as an expert, must contact CCSO.LegalVisit@ccsheriff.org to set up in-person professional visits.
If you elect to conduct a video virtual visit, it can be connected through Zoom. Communications through this system—either audio or video—are not monitored or recorded. However, please note that the CCSO cannot guarantee total privacy during these calls, as they are occurring in a correctional setting.
All requests must be submitted at least 48 hours in advance for attorney/professional video conferences, and seven days in advance for federal court proceedings. Requests from attorneys and non-attorney professionals will only be granted if the individual(s) in custody they represent currently resides in the Cook County Department of Corrections.
If you are an attorney and wish for the call with your client to not be recorded, you must contact CCSO.LegalVisit@ccsheriff.org. Upon that request, your phone number will be registered as non-recordable.
For questions about scheduling, please contact CCSO.LegalVisit@ccsheriff.org.
