The Brunswick County Detention Center will ensure that inmates confined in the Brunswick County Detention Center are provided the opportunity to visit with family, friends and professionals during times designated for visiting by the Chief Jail Administrator.  There are currently three (3) different ways to visit inmates incarcerated at our facility, online via the internet, on a smart phone at the Securus Video Visit app, and onsite at the Detention Center.

All inmate visits at the Brunswick County Detention Center are non-contact video visits.  Inmate visitation is a privilege and may be denied for disciplinary reasons.  Inmate visits may be restricted consistent with administrative limitations and the need to uphold the safety and security of the facility.
