RSW Regional Jail implements new visitation system
Rappahannock-Shenandoah-Warren (RSW) Regional Jail announced the launch of a new web-based visitation system that allows for both onsite and remote visits.
The system, iWebVisit, allows inmates to visit with their loved ones after not being able to so for months because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Effective today, July 13, the jail will utilize the system for remote visits only.
To accommodate this new system, a few changes have been made to visitation schedule and operations. Visitors will be required to register and schedule all visitations a minimum of one day in advance by going to the website, iwebvisit.com. Visitors are no longer required to be on an approved visitor list for each inmate and there are no restrictions to the number of remote visits each week, as long as there is a time slot available.
Visitation can take place during three time slots: 8 a.m-11:30 a.m., 1 p.m.-4:30 p.m. and 6 p.m.-9:30 p.m.
Visits are in 15-minute increments and up to three in a row may be scheduled at a time to allow for a total visit of 45 minutes.
The visits come at a price, however. There will be a fee of $4.50 for each 15-minute visit and fees must be paid utilizing the website when a visit is scheduled. According to a release from the jail, fees are paid to iWeb to operate their system and RSW receives no revenue from the service.
Visitors should also understand that by utilizing the system, they agree to the terms and rules of iWebVisit. In addition, all visitation policies set forth by RSW Regional Jail are applicable. Any inappropriate content that is observed will result in the inmate losing their visitation privilege for a period of 30 days. Subsequent offenses will result in a loss of visitation for a period of 60 and then 90 days.
The jail will continue to monitor and evaluate the situation so a decision can be made regarding onsite visits at a later date.
