Inmate Information

Commissary - Inmate Deposits

Inmate commissary deposits can be made online. There is also a kiosk in the jail lobby which will accept cash or credit cards. You will need the inmate's prisoner identification number to make this deposit. Money is no longer accepted at the lobby window, nor cash or money orders sent through the mail. Money received during book-in will be credited to the inmate's commissary account for use. Inmates order commissary on Sundays and their orders are delivered on Saturday.
