How do I get money on an inmate’s commissary or set up an account with the inmate commissary provider?

You may deposit money onto an inmate’s commissary account, or set up an account, by visiting Smart Deposit, or by phone at 1-866-394-0490. You may also deposit money through a convenience kiosk in the lobby of the Detention Center.

The Commissary Program normally operates as follows:

  1. Detention staff members are prohibited from accepting, depositing or processing funds sent through the U.S. Mail, except for those coming from other correctional facilities.  Unauthorized funds will be returned to the sender unprocessed.
  2. Commissary funds may only be deposited.
  3. You must have sufficient funds in your account to purchase commissary items; the purchase cost is directly deducted from your commissary account by the commissary provider.  

The Commissary Program is a privilege and not a detainee right.  Program participation is subject to suspension at any time without notice.
