New Commissary Utilized for Inmates
Lawrence County Sheriff’s Office
RE: Commissary, Detainee Property and Inmate Banking
This is to inform you that the Lawrence County Jail has begun a commissary, where hygiene products, and other select items, may be purchased for detainees. Sunday, June 5, 2016 during visitation hours, will be the last time property will be accepted from the public for detainees at the jail. After that, items may be ordered by detainees who have money on their account.
If you wish to add money to their account, you may do so with cash, credit or debit card on the ATM in the jail lobby. For your convenience, you may also add money to their account or order commissary items for them on the internet at www. JailATM.com. Jail staff cannot accept money from the public to place on Inmate Banking Accounts. This can only be done through the ATM or via the website. There are some restrictions on quantity and frequency certain items may be ordered (i.e. how many ibuprofen they can order, how often they can order playing cards, etc.). Upon their release, any balance on their account will be placed on a debit card.
We will also begin selling $5 and $10 phone cards. The phone cards will allow detainees to make calls from the inmate phone system for 4 cents a minute less than the collect and pre-paid destination calls. The phone cards will not be available on the website at this time and must be purchased by the detainees directly from the jail. They must have enough money on their accounts to make the purchase.
Thank you for your patience as we transition to this new service.
