Persons wishing to visit a prisoner or to pay a prisoner’s fine or bond must inquire at the front desk at the Allen Police Station. Visitation hours are from 9 - 11 a.m. and 7 - 9 p.m. daily.
Detention Officers Detention officers assist police officers in handling prisoners, coordinating prisoner transfers, finger printing and booking, and other daily jail operations.
