Inmate Funds

Inmate Funds


​There are three ways to deposit funds into an inmate’s account for their purchase of commissary items or phone time.​​​

1. Deposits may be made using the Stellar Teller in the lobby of the jail, by cash or debit/credit card. There is a $2.00 fee for each transaction. If using a debit or credit card, there will also be an additional fee of approximately 10% of the amount of the deposit charged to the card for each transaction. ​


2. Deposits may be made on the internet at JailATM.com using a debit or credit card. There will be a fee of 10% of the amount of the deposit charged to the users' card for each transaction. ​

​​3. Money orders in increments of $50.00 or less may be mailed. Money orders must be made out to the inmate’s name, and all fields on the front of the money order must be filled out completely. Money orders over $50.00, or those not completely filled out, will be mailed back to the remitter. ​​Personal checks and payroll checks will not be accepted, and will be mailed back to the sender.​​
JAIL STAFF CANNOT DISCUSS AN INMATE’S ACCOUNT WITH OTHERS.​
