Inmate Pin Debit Accounts are another way inmates can call their loved ones, allowing the inmate to choose who they want to call using the funds placed on their Pin Debit Account.
The inmate is assigned a unique PIN number to access their account to make phone calls.
Friends and Family can also deposit money into this account conveniently and securely through this website or through the assistance of a Customer Service Representative.
Once funds are added to the inmate’s Pin Debit account, the funds belong to the inmate to call any phone number they so choose.
Only the inmate can know the call charges, balances, or any other activity with their account.
Inmates are given Dialing Instructions in the Facility, as there are different ways to dial out correctly to make a phone call using one of these two phone accounts. ( Pre-Paid Collect Calling: Dial 0 + Phone Number // Pin Debit Calling: Dial 1 + Phone Number )
Purchasing Phone Cards

Typically, these phone cards will be sold through facility's commissary, if the facility provides this option. Pulaski County allows it.
You can do this by depositing funds into an inmate’s Commissary account.
This allows the inmate to use the funds in his/her account for items they can purchase in Commissary.

Important Tips About Jail Phone Calls
Inmates at this jail have access to phones for many hours of the day. They are turned off during some meal times and at night during lock down.
Jails limit an inmate's phone time to certain hours of the day, so it is important you keep a regular schedule that works for both you and your inmate.
If your inmate does not call you during the time you both have scheduled, don't panic. There are often long lines for phone use. When a jail is on lockdown due to a fight or other security issue they do not allow the phones to be used.
Phones are the only way for an inmate to hear your voice and temporarily 'escape' the loneliness of incarceration, so use your time well. Arguing about anything will leave you both feeling empty and guilty, so avoid it at all costs.
All phone conversations are recorded. Whatever you talk about, can and will be used against your inmate in court. Never discuss their pending criminal case!
