In-Person Jail Visitation Suspended
Manhattan, Kan. — For continued protection of the inmates in our care and our corrections staff, routine in-person jail visitation is suspended until further notice as a precaution due to COVID-19.
Free video visitation will continue to be available in the lobby of the Riley County Police Department from 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. Staff will be routinely disinfecting the lobby area. Visitors are required to wear a face covering.
Video visitation from your home will also continue to be available at a reduced rate through Inmate Canteen: http://inmatecanteen.com
The Riley County Jail continues to work to ensure the safety of inmates by planning for potential COVID-19 cases within the jail. Separate housing has been identified to allow for both male and female inmates to quarantine if needed.
Inmate legal counsel will continue to have access unless the person coming to the jail is exhibiting signs of COVID-19 symptoms or exposure.
RCPD encourage’s everyone to stay informed by following guidance from the Riley County Health Department, Kansas Department of Health and Environment, and Center for Disease Control (CDC). We are relying on the advice of medical health professionals to do our part in protecting the citizens of Riley County, the Police Department, and our employees.
