For a fee, friends, family members and professionals now can skip the trip to the El Paso County jail and visit with inmates online from a personal computer.

Online public visits cost $6 per 30-minute session, the El Paso County Sheriff's Office said. Professional visits also cost $6 but are not subject to time limits.

On-site visits will continue to be free.

An email address must be used to create an account to visit with an inmate online, and visitors "are encouraged to run a simple test to ensure the computer hardware is compatible," the Sheriff's Office said.

Visitors' email addresses will be used to confirm visits and send notifications about changes to a scheduled visit, like a location change or inmate release.

Schedule an online visit with an inmate through IP Web Visitor at 204.98.79.52/StartPage/index.php.
