Collect Calls

Inmates have access to telephones to make collect calls. They may request to purchase phone time using the canteen kiosk system. They may not receive incoming calls or messages unless it is a life or death emergency, which will be verified by a deputy before issuing the message to the inmate. If you would like to put money onto an inmate's account go to the this link.
