Inmate Finances

Upon Incarceration

When an inmate is incarcerated, any money they have is taken and accounted for. This money is placed into an account where it is available for the inmate's use. Families and friends can also contribute money to an inmate's account.

Sending Money to an Inmate

If you want to send money to an inmate, you have the following options.

  • The prison only accepts money orders made payable to the inmate and received through the mail.
  • The prison also offers a program that allows you to send money to an inmate through the Internet via JailATM.
  • You can also use cash to send money to an inmate by inserting into the kiosk located in the jail lobby.

Fees & Currency During Incarceration

The prison has a policy of making the inmate responsible for various services provided to them. As a result of these fees, an inmate may owe money to the prison.

Please be advised that if you send money to an inmate and they owe money to the prison, up to 60% of the money you send will be deducted and used to offset the amount owed .

The inmates are not allowed to have any money in their possession while in the prison. If they are caught with any, it is treated as a misconduct and dealt with accordingly.

If you have any questions about these fees and policies, please feel free to contact our staff.

Upon Release

When the inmate is released, any money they have left in their account is returned to the inmate minus any amounts owed the prison for various fees for services provided for the inmate while they were incarcerated.
