Serving Wichita County and the surrounding area is the mission of the Wichita County Jail in Wichita Falls, Texas. This detention facility has been operational since 1984, when it had a maximum capacity of 624 inmates. Since then, growing populations and other factors have led to the jail’s expansion. Now, the Wichita County Jail is able to meet the ever-growing needs of its community with its large staff and remodeled building.

In addition to basic jail services, The Wichita County Jail Downtown Facility aims to rehabilitate and provide for its inmates through alternative programs. If an inmate is eligible, they can qualify for programs such as basic work release, electronic home monitoring, or community service. These services are designed to ensure that the prison is meeting the needs of the community while providing opportunities for inmates to reform and make their re-integration easier once their sentence is complete.

Wichita County Jail Downtown Facility is a medium-security establishment. The inmates within the jail may be awaiting sentencing, or be fulfilling a sentence already determined by the courts.

The growth of the jail has led to an increase in staffing. At this point in time, there are a total of 40 corrections deputies that provide for the day to day needs of the jail. Overseeing this staff are 5 corrections sergeants and a lieutenant, securing the safety and rights of the inmates will not be infringed.

The Wichita County Jail Downtown Facility is under the Wichita County Sheriff’s jurisdiction. The Detention Bureau of the Sheriff’s Department serves the jail and makes up the largest portion of the Sheriff’s Department staffing.

The current Sheriff in Wichita County, Texas is David Duke. The Sheriff’s Office is in the same building as the Wichita County Courthouse at 900 7th Street in Wichita Falls. The office is open from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm.

Visitation at Wichita County Jail Downtown Facility

To visit an inmate at this facility, you must strictly abide by the rules. Any disobedience may lead to a bar from visitation, up to the discretion of the jail staff. Visitation is not a right, it is a privilege. Inmates in solitary confinement or on the “keep separate” list are still allowed visitation, although they are kept to Thursdays. If you are unsure if an inmate is allowed to receive visitors, you can always contact the jail to confirm their information.

Visitation at this facility is based on the alphabetical order of the inmates’ last names. Inmates who have last names beginning with A through L are granted visits on Tuesdays, while inmates whose last names begin with M through Z are given Wednesdays for visits.

Visitation hours are the same for each day. Visits are allowed from 8:00 am to 8:00 pm, with the sign up period ending at 7:00 pm. Inmate activities will not be interrupted for visits. Instead, visitors will be alerted when an inmate’s schedule is open for a visit.

What you should bring

When visiting an inmate, it is important to bring your valid, government-issued photo ID with you. If you do not have proper identification, you will not be allowed to visit.

You are absolutely not allowed to bring any kind of electronic device with you during your visit. This includes cell phones. This rule applies to everywhere, including the lobby of the jail. It is best to just leave your electronic devices in your car when you arrive.

You are not allowed to bring money for inmates. If you would like to deposit money in an inmate’s account, you may do so through the services offered. Giving money directly to inmates is strictly prohibited.

Wear appropriate clothing. This means no clothing that accentuates the form, shows cleavage or is otherwise provocative. Sleeveless shirts are not allowed. It is up to the jail staff to determine if your clothing is appropriate. If you do not know if your outfit will be acceptable, it is a good idea to just change.

Other things to keep in mind

Inappropriate behavior will not be tolerated. This includes violent outbursts, slamming the phone down, loud talking, smoking, eating, drinking, or other disruptive activities. Again, this is up to the discretion of the staff.

Note that certain inmates will not be allowed visits at the same time. If this is the case for the inmate that you are visiting, you will be notified when your visit is allowed to commence.

The bottom line is that the Wichita County Jail Downtown Facility staff reserve the right to have finals ay on visits. If they have any reason to believe that the safety or stability of the visitor, inmates, or staff is potentially threatened, they can end your visit at any time. For further questions regarding visitation, contact the jail itself.
