Telephones are available in each of the dayrooms. Inmates will have access to the telephone during morning, afternoon, and evening hours. A 20-minute time limit is enforced to allow all inmates access to the telephone. These are “collect call” telephones which requires the receiver of the call to pay the charges for those calls that are accepted. Should you have questions regarding the Evercom phone system or phone call charges please contact 1-800-844-6591.

As an alternative to the “collect calls”, inmates can also purchase phone cards for $10 or $20 through Commissary. These phone cards can be used to reach cell phones. They can be carried at all times. They can be used outside the facility when the inmate is released.
