Offender funds are recorded in the Offender’s Trust Fund Account which is used to record all deposits, withdrawals, and purchases.
- Any cash in the offender’s possession upon commitment will be deposited in the Kiosk to be deposited in
the Offender’s Trust Fund Account and a receipt for the same will be given to the offender. All checks
and money orders will remain in the offender’s property.
- When funds are received at the Lobby Kiosk, a receipt will be given to the person leaving the funds. The funds will then be
recorded in the Offender’s Trust Fund Account. No checks or money orders will be accepted.
- Offenders being released from custody who have funds in their Offender’s Trust Fund Account will be issued
a debit card for the balance of their account. Note: Some funds may be frozen on your account for outstanding
medical fees. These funds will not be released at the time of your release.
- Destruction or defacing of County property will result in your account being frozen until the incident is investigated.
If fault is proven, the amount for repairs and/ or replacement may be deducted from your account.
- If you feel there is a discrepancy as to the amount of funds recorded in your account, you should address the problem to the
Accounts Clerk by filling out a Request to Staff Member form or the Jail Administration by phone or request.
Indigent Offenders (No Funds)
- When an offender is incarcerated and has no funds, provisions are made for that offender to order personal
hygiene items, writing materials, and postage of both private and legal mail. These items can be ordered
after being incarcerated 72 hours and then every week. The order is limited to $5.30.
- In the event that an offender receives funds in his/her account, the price of the indigent orders will
be deducted from the deposited funds and any remaining funds will be applied to the offender’s account.

Conditional Use & Limited Use Items
- Razors are considered to be a conditional use item. This means although you purchase a razor from
the commissary, you will not be allowed to keep the razor in your cell. Razors are sold for a one-time
use for $ 0.25. You will need to buy a new razor every time you wish to shave. If you need a razor,
you must make your request to the Pod Officer when you receive your breakfast tray (approximately 5:00 A.M.).
The officer will check the razor out to you when they are received. You will be given a period of 15 minutes
to shave. After use, the razor must be returned to the Pod Officer. Storing or attempting to store a razor
in your cell may result in disciplinary action. Offenders who are trustees or are assigned to work release
may use their razors at times other than the designated time as this time period may conflict with their
work schedule. If you are indigent, you will be allowed to purchase a razor. $0.25 will be posted to your
Trust Fund Account for collection when you receive funds
