Child Exchange Safe Zone

Oklahoma Child Visitation Registry Act Exchanges at the Oklahoma County Sheriff's Office Sub-Station are between the hours of 10 a.m. and 8 p.m. Monday through Saturday. On Sundays, exchanges take place between noon and 5 p.m.

The Sheriff's Office requires a copy of your court order on file. The court order must be time and day specific to facilitate these exchanges.

Exchange Expectations

Each party is expected to behave in a civil manner while making an exchange in the Sheriff's Office. It should be understood that we have a policy of "no tolerance" on this matter. Any other behavior will be dealt with accordingly.

When making an exchange there will be a $2 fee per person, per exchange (exact amount, cash only), in accordance with state law. When paid, the Sheriff's Office will provide you with a receipt of the transaction.

In accordance with state law, the Oklahoma County Sheriff's Office will furnish a registry sign-in sheet. The on-duty deputy will record the date, arrival time, departure time, your name, and phone number. According to state law, the Sheriff's Office will maintain the participant's record for three years. Copies of a participant's records shall be available at a cost of $1 per sheet.

To help alleviate problems with the exchanges, the party responsible for delivering the child (children) must wait at the Sheriff's Office until the party receiving the child (children) has had reasonable time to leave the premises.
