What We Do
About the Martin County Security Center: The Martin County Security Center is a maximum-security facility that houses local, non-local, and Department of Corrections inmates. The Sheriff and Chief Deputy believe in rehabilitating inmates. They offer substance abuse, GED, and literacy programs. These valuable tools help offenders become more productive members of society.
Visitation for all inmates is held Saturdays and Sundays each week between the hours of 9:00am-11:30am and 12:30pm-5pm. Each inmate is allotted a maximum of thirty (30) minutes per weekend for visitation; this allotted time can be in the form of one (1) thirty-minute visit or two (2) fifteen-minute visits. Prior arrangements may be made with Sheriff Roush and/or Jail Commander Brulla if a longer period of visitation time is needed for a special circumstance. Each special circumstance will be evaluated on an individual basis.
All inmates at the Martin County Security Center are allotted a maximum of thirty minutes on Saturdays and Sundays. This allotted time can be broken up into two 15-minute visits. Prior arrangements may be made with the Sheriff if a longer period of time may be need for a special circumstance.
Chaplain visitation: Inmates are allowed to have minister visitation within our facility. A minister has to be pre-approved through the Jail Commander and/or Sheriff Roush.
