Inmate Visitation

All personal inmate visitation is conducted exclusively through the HomeWAV Video Visitation platform. 

All visitors are required to create an account on the HomeWAV website. Persons under the age of 18 years must be accompanied by an adult with a valid HomeWAV account. Any visitation that occurs and is dependent on equipment provided by the Effingham County Jail will be subject to monitoring and recording. 

On-Site Visitation

On-site visitations are scheduled 24 hours in advance, pending visitor approval. Visitors are responsible for scheduling visits. Visitors must dress appropriately, attire should be appropriate to wear around small children. No recording devices, cell phones, or cameras are allowed in the visitation area of the jail. Please leave these items in your vehicle. Flashing or any other obscene behavior will not be tolerated. 

Remote Video Visitation

Remote video visitation is available through use of HomeWAV's free mobile app which can be downloaded through Google Play or the Apple App Store. Although the visit is remote, the rules regarding appropriate attire and obscene behavior still apply.
