Inmate Money

Depositing money in inmate accounts

Most inmates have the privilege of ordering items from the commissary, and funds also are necessary to pay for barber services, medical expenses, court-imposed fines and restitution, etc.

An ATM-like machine allows visitors to deposit cash or use credit and debit cards to leave money in inmate accounts. Located in the lobby of the corrections facility, the machine was installed in partnership with commissary vendor CBM. It dispenses no funds, but gives the user a receipt of the transaction and makes the money available immediately to the receiving inmate.

A $3.75 convenience fee is charged for each transaction. Deposits made using the ATM are not subject to any limit, though the fee will be imposed for every $100 deposited.

Money may be deposited to inmate accounts using JailATM. You will be able to use a credit/debit card. You will set up an account using your email address. This account will be used each time you log back on to add more money.

Money orders will no longer be accepted for inmate accounts.
