Regardless of the method of sending funds, there are several key things you will need to know:

  • Inmate’s full committed name
  • Inmate’s ID number
  • Inmate’s location – or a system like the federal BOP

Phone Calls

Day County Jail has a phone program where you set up an account through the third party company, GlobalTel, and then they charged you steep fees for each minute called.

According to the website, you can save money on inmate calling by using a “GlobalTel ‘Special Jail Phone Number’. When your inmate calls your ‘Special Jail Phone Number’, your phone rings and you save.” No more premium jail calling rates.

These phone calls are recorded and can be used against you so do not discuss your case with family members over these phone lines.

Visiting Rules

Day County Jail requires all visitors to fill out an application prior to your visiting an inmate.

Carefully fill out the application. Incomplete paperwork is cause for denial.

Honesty, especially regarding past criminal convictions, probation etc., is important. These things will most likely show up on the background check – which if lied about on the application, will cause visits to be denied.

Jail visits are conducted in person behind plexiglass or on a televised screen from another location.

Children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian and guardians must provide proof of their guardianship.

Leave all personal belongings, except for your state ID in your vehicle or in a locker (if one is provided).

Children must be monitored at all times or jail staff will end the visit early.
