Door County Sheriff-elect Tammy Sternard sees future changes to jail visitations

By Paul Schmitt


The way and frequency people visit those who are jailed in Door County might change in the future.  In-person visitations are still an important weekly occasion for incarcerated people at the Door County Jail, according to Door County Sheriff-elect Tammy Sternard.  Currently, all visitors must be pre-approved prior to the allowed visitations that takes place on Thursday, Saturday and Sunday evenings.  Sternard says new technologies may make it possible to save money while enhancing the visitation options.



Sternard believes interaction is important for people who are incarcerated.  She says staffing is always an issue with face-to-face visitation but technology offers alternatives that are worth exploring.
