How do I receive phone calls from an inmate?

All inmates can make outside calls to approved family and friends.  No incoming calls can be received except for voicemail messages to approved inmates. Each inmate will be given access to the telephone upon the completion of the booking process. Telephones for private use are located in each housing area.

Inmate calls (local and long distance) are billed at a per-minute rate, with no connection fees. International calls are also billed at a per-minute rate. Three-way calls are prohibited.

To add money to a prisoner's account, you may mail it directly to the prisoner or deposit the funds directly to the detention center by stopping by and leaving the money with Central Control.  Cash, money orders or bank cashier's checks will be accepted. Receipts are given for the funds.

Prisoners buy a variety of things from the jail commissary: candy, snacks, beverages, writing materials, shoes and clothing, provided they have sufficient funds to pay for what they order.

If a prisoner has no money in his/her commissary account for 72 hours prior to the request for commissary, the jail will supply him/her with necessary personal hygiene items as determined by jail staff. He/she will also receive three stamped envelopes and writing paper each week if they are proven to be indigent.
