When a person is processed into the Correctional Center, all money and valuables are inventoried and then secured in our Finance Office. Money is counted and deposited into an institutional account in the inmate’s name. Valuables are labeled and placed in a locked storage area. Inmates released on weekends can have their money and valuables mailed to them or they may elect to pick them up at the Finance Office Tuesday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 2:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. On Mondays, hours are 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 2:30 p.m. to 6 p.m.
Friends and family may deposit up to a total of $150 per week (Sunday through Saturday) into an inmate’s commissary account using either of the two EZ-Deposit kiosks located in the Reception area at the Correctional Center or by going online. No checks or money orders will be accepted. The two kiosks in the Reception area accept cash and credit card deposits. The online site accepts only credit card deposits. All deposits made at the kiosks or Website are posted to the inmate’s account the next business day.
