Process for Depositing Money into Inmate Accounts
An inmate trust fund account is assigned to each inmate. This allows the inmate to make purchases from the commissary, pay various fines and fees, and send money to their family. There is no limitation on how much money may be deposited into an inmate's account.
Cashier's checks, money orders, certified checks, federal government checks, and correctional facility inmate trust fund checks received by inmates through the mail are acceptable forms of tender for deposit. Any form of check or money order must be made payable to the inmate. All checks or money orders received for an inmate are posted to that inmate's account on the date received and a computer-generated receipt is sent to the inmate. Any personal check sent to an inmate is returned to the sender with no exceptions.
Do not send cash through the mail under any circumstances.
In the event that the mail is lost, the sender will not be able to put a tracer on cash sent through the mail.
