Money may be deposited into an inmate's account. Inmates may use the money to purchase snacks, hygiene items, phone cards, and writing materials. Inmates may also use the money for co-payments (currently $3.00) if they request medical, non-emergency services.
You may deliver money to inmates in one of four ways:
- Online Deposits Using Access Corrections
- Deposits by Phone Using Access Corrections
- Cash or Credit Card Deposit by Kiosk in Jail Facility Lobbies
- US Postal Money Order by Mail
