Burke Co. Suspends Jail Visitation


In the interest of persons within our custody, our citizens, and officers, the Burke County Sheriff’s Office is implementing a temporary suspension, until further notice, to limit persons within the jail. This suspension will include visitation of persons in custody, programs involving persons coming inside the jail, and religious services.


Remote visitation will continue to be available as well as attorney visits.


We can hopefully resume full services within the jail in the near future.
