In order to ensure safety standards for COVID-19, the Detention Center will be offering limited on-site visits to the general public. The days open for visitation will start with three days and increase slowly to ensure that all safety standards are adhered to for all. The personal safety of everyone is our priority. The new 3 day schedule is listed below.

The general public may visit inmates at Kenton County Detention Center. The County Detention Center houses Federal, State, and County inmates. Visiting hours (Visitation Schedule) vary and are subject to change without prior notice.
