Cobb County Adult Detention Center

Jail Information And Rules


Visitation resumed JANUARY 19, 2021 . To comply with CDC guidelines and Governor Kemp’s directive, several modifications have been implemented. Visits may be scheduled any day of the week EXCEPT Wednesday and will take place beginning at 9:00 AM until 7:00 PM. Each inmate is limited to ONE visit per week with a maximum of TWO visitors per visit. We ask that visitors remain in their vehicle until 5 minutes prior to the scheduled visit. Entry is through the front doors of the Visitation Center with the exit through the side door of the building. All visitors must wear a facemask during their time in the building.

Please do not enter the facility if you have a temperature, have any symptoms related to COVID-19, have had close contact with anyone with a confirmed or suspected case of COVID-19 or if you have tested positive for COVID-19

Visitation staff will continue to provide an alcohol cleaning pad for each visitor. At the conclusion of each visitation session, staff will clean each station to include the telephone, counter and chair. Staff will also clean lobby seating frequently.

We understand visiting with friends and loved ones in custody is important, and the modifications may be confusing or upsetting. Your safety, as well as the safety of inmates and staff, is a priority. All modifications are designed with this in mind. Thank you for your understanding.


The Cobb County Sheriff’s Office uses video conferencing to conduct both public and professional visits. Visits are scheduled to allow for a more effective and streamlined process.
