Search results can be narrowed by entering the inmate’s first/last name or booking date. Information displayed includes the inmate’s name, booking date, and number, bond and mugshot.

Sending a Mail

Inmates are allowed to be mailed letters, written on plain sheets of paper and including 4x6 photographs.

Sending Money

Inmates need money in their accounts for a variety of things. There is a one-time admission fee of $20 for clothing and linens, as well as a daily $3 fee for food. To pay for these things, any funds in an inmate’s account will be taken out. Inmates who work in jail will have the daily fee waived.

Inmates also need money to pay for making phone calls, sending letters, and to buy items at the commissary store.
