Jailer Marc Fields Re-Opens On-Site Video Visitation

Kenton County Jailer Marc Fields re-opened on-site video visits last month at the Kenton County Detention Center (KCDC). Currently, the visitation schedule is limited to ensure public safety and the safety of inmates in transition from COVID-19 closures. 

“Once we can ensure that safety protocols can be met, we will expand the visitation days,” stated Jailer Fields. “The health of all involved is our top priority. We appreciate the community’s patience as we continue to improve visits with loved ones.”

The first stage of the on-site video visitation schedule is as follows:

  • All Dorms (Except Dorms 102, 104 & 107)
    • Wednesday & Friday
      •   8 AM to 11 AM; 1 PM to 2:30 PM
  • Dorms 102, 104 & 107
    • Saturday
      •   8:30 AM to 1:30 PM

Online/remote visits (not on-site at KCDC) are available during the following times:

  • All Dorms (Except Dorms 102, 104 & 107)
    • Daily
      •   11 AM to 3 PM AND 5 PM to 10:40 PM
  • Dorms 102, 104 & 107
    • Daily
      •   6 PM - 9 PM

KCDC has implemented a new video visitation system called Combined Public Communications (Friends and Family). This system offers clearer video and sound for both the visitor and the inmate. The system also allows the public to register and schedule visits online without having to call the Detention Center directly.

To register and schedule a visit, go to Combined Public Communications- Friends and Family. Once on the Combined Public Communications website, click the “Visit Inmate Sales Now” button. You will be redirected to a registration wizard which will offer detailed instructions on how to continue. You can also contact KCDC at (859) 363-2400 to register.

Visits must be scheduled at least 24 hours in advance. Visiting hours vary and are subject to change without prior notice. Learn more about visitation on the KCDC website.
