Inmates may use the phone and mail letters. Visitors can mail letters to inmates, or drop letters and photos off in the front office during our normal business hours. All personal phone calls, letters and visits are subject to monitoring at any time. Phone calls and mail from or to lawyers or other legal professionals are not recorded, read or monitored. Legal visits are monitored with a camera, but no sound is recorded.
Inmates get one free, 60-second phone call after being admitted. Legal calls to lawyers and probation officers are free. A listing of free calls is provided to all inmates. Other calls may have a fee that is charged by the minute. Inmates are allowed to make collect calls.
