    Telephone Use

    You may establish an account to receive collect calls from an inmate in the jail

     

    The following information is an excerpt from the official inmate handbook, given to each inmate booked into the facility, about telephone use.

    Telephone Calls

    During the booking and classification process, supervisors, booking deputies and counseling staff may, at their discretion, allow you to place non-toll calls to procure bond or for verified family emergencies. All inmates will be given access to a FREE phone call during the classification process. After this initial call, the Counseling staff WILL NOT provide telephone assistance except in EMERGENCY situations. All other calls to contact family, friends, employers, attorneys, etc., will be made on the dayroom collect call telephones. All calls, with the exception of attorney/client privileged conversation, may be monitored and/or recorded for the safety of staff, inmates, the community and the security of the facility.

    Telephone rules:

    1. There is a fifteen (15) minute time limit on all calls.
    2. You are not allowed to talk loud, make threats or abuse the phones. Abuse of the collect call, coin or visitation phones may result in criminal charges, including associated monetary responsibility for repairs or replacement. You may be instructed to end a call for any abuse of the telephones. If you do not end a call when instructed, the phone may be shut off.
    3. Phone numbers may be blocked if there is any indication of attempted 3-way calling, potential fraud, possible non-payment or harassment. There are value limits per day, per week and per month for each specific number called. If you exceed these limits, the phone provider will automatically block the number.
    4. Current guidelines regarding the number of call attempts per seven-day period, accepted calls, denied calls and talk time limits for both local and long distance calls is posted in your assigned housing area. Exceeding any of the limits listed will cause an automatic block.

     

    If you are having problems connecting with a specific phone number, contact the phone provider at the number posted in your assigned housing area.

    Telephone calls to the public defender and other inmate assistance programs are, in general, open and are not subject to a charge.
