Inmate Communication

This facility's inmate phone system is provided by Securus Technologies. Only inmates may initiate phone calls. If you wish to contact an inmate, your options are to call and leave the inmate a voicemail (for a fee), write a letter, or visit the inmate during official visitation hours.

Phone Calls

To call you, an inmate simply dials your phone number. When receiving a call, you should first hear an announcement from an automated voice, such as "You are receiving a call from [inmate name], an inmate at [facility name]. Press one (1) to accept."

If the inmate has no calling funds, and is calling you for the first time, the call will be free for a brief period of time (often less than a minute). This is to allow the inmate to inform you of where he or she is, and to explain how calls work from this facility. After this short call, the inmate will be placed on hold and you will be presented the opportunity to:

  • Pay (via credit card) to continue the current call ​
  • Deposit funds for the inmate to continue your call and, if there is money remaining, the inmate may use the funds to make future calls to any number. ​
  • Deposit funds to your own phone number to continue your call and, if there is money remaining, the inmate may use the funds to call your number in the future, but the funds will not be available for calling other numbers. ​

Phone Funds ​

The inmate commissary account is a separate account and is not part of the inmate phone and visitation accounts. Funds can not be transferred between accounts. Deposit funds on the inmate commissary account. ​

You may also deposit funds for phone and visitation time:

  • Via the Web - Make deposits via the Web, from the Securus Web site at

Friends and family can now leave inmates a voice mail message, Just call 765-342-4303 and follow the prompts or call 1-800-844-6591.

Block Future Calls

If you do not wish to receive calls from inmates, you may call 1-800-844-6591 (from a phone attached to the number that you wish to have blocked). A live operator will help prevent inmates from being able to call the number in the future. ​​
