The Burlington County Jail offers both contact and non-contact visiting at the Burlington County Detention Facility (BCDF). You can review the Burlington County Detention Center visiting schedule and policies online.
Contact visiting is a privilege; therefore, after an inmate is incarcerated for a period of 90 days, the inmate may submit a request to have contact visits. After the request is received, the Administration office will review the inmate's file. If it is found that the requirements are met contact visiting will be approved. If it is found that the inmate does not meet the requirements then contact visiting will be denied.
