NRS 62B.510 requires detained youth to have regular communication with biological children, parents, guardians, attorneys, and other adults with whom the child has established a familial or mentoring relationship, including clergy, caseworkers, teachers, mentors and other persons, upon approval of the detention facility.If your child has been detained, you may communicate with him/her in one of three ways
A juvenile is allowed an initial phone call at the time of booking, and then may have a call every-other day. All phone calls will be placed to a parent of guardian only. If you live outside of our local phone service, those calls will be made collect. While detained, every juvenile has the opportunity to earn special privileges based on behaviors. One of those privileges is daily phone calls.
All written correspondence must be sent through the postal service. Address mail to the juvenile at the Elko County Juvenile Detention Center 665 West Silver Street, Elko Nevada 89801. Letters sent from other probationers or other correctional facilities (juvenile or adult) will be rejected. Detained juveniles are allowed to write letters several times a week, and receive mail daily.
Detained juveniles are allowed one visit every other day, Monday thru Sunday (including holidays). You must have a photo ID. You must call the facility, Monday thru Friday, 8 to 5 pm, to make an appointment 24 hours in advance. Visits by anyone other than biological children, parents, guardians, or attorneys must obtain permission from the juvenile's Probation Officer AND the Detention Manager prior to scheduling. Plan to arrive 10-15 minutes prior to your scheduled visit. Visits begin exactly at the scheduled time, late arrivals (even only 1-2 minutes) may be turned away. Please be aware that you may not bring any items into the visit with you including purses, wallets, etc. Lockers are provided if needed. If a child is being sent to a residential mental health or correctional program, a family visit that includes the biological children, parents, guardians and to include siblings on a case by case basis (up to 6 people) will be allowed prior to the child leaving with adequate scheduling.
