When an inmate is booked into the Adult Detention Center, an inmate account is created. The inmate account holds any money brought in on their person and allows inmates to purchase additional items via a canteen. Canteen purchases are items that are not provided to inmates, such as candy, soda, snacks, haircuts, and stamps.
Account information is only available to inmates. Upon release, the inmate's account is closed and a debit card or check containing the account balance is issued. If an inmate is transferred to another facility, the inmate’s account is closed and the inmate is issued a check.
