NASHVILLE — The Nash County Detention Center is live with inmate face-to-face video visitation.

The iWebVisit website allows for face-to-face video visitation from home or anywhere with reliable internet access. The iWebVisit website is www.iwebvisit.com.

“Our hopes are that this process helps facilitate a secure and reliable source of communication with attorneys and clients as well as for family members,” said Capt. Robert Bowen, the jail’s administrator.

A remote video visit is often less expensive than a voice-only telephone call or traveling to a correctional facility. Plus, people can visit remotely on their own schedules. Family members can visit the website to set up an account.

Attorneys will have the ability to schedule both confidential video visitations and in-person visits through the website. In order to gain access, attorneys must arrange the visit prior to midnight the day before the visit. Confidential accounts are not monitored by the iWebVisit website or by the Nash County Sheriff’s Office.

For use of this system, attorneys must set up a confidential account via the iWebVisit website by clicking on the visitor tab, then clicking “confidential visitor information.” From that point, attorneys may create an account. Once the account is established, administrative staff at the jail will verify the account.
