Adding Money to an Inmate's Commissary

Cash deposits may be made to an inmate’s account through the use of the Lobby Kiosk located in the video visitation area behind the front desk in the lobby. This machine is similar to an ATM and instructions for use are listed on the screen and given verbally.
The Lobby Kiosk accepts $1, $5, $10, $20, $50, and $100 bills only. A charge of $3 per transaction will be assessed for each deposit.
Credit and debit cards may be used to deposit money into an inmate’s account through the Lobby Kiosk as well. A convenience fee will be assessed per transaction.
