How to Put Money on an Inmate Account in the Sebastian County Adult Detention Center
There are usually four choices for putting money on an inmate's books:
Choice 1 - Dropping Money at the Jail
Bring money to the jail in person.
You can deposit it into the Kiosk in the Lobby.
Choice 2 - Deposit Inmate Money Online
Sebastian County Adult Detention Center uses a private company to process all online deposits to an inmate's account.
The company charges you a small fee for doing so, but the fee probably isn't as much as gas and parking would cost to take it to the jail in person.
Go to the online site for depositing funds. You will need to register an account, which is free to do and use a debit/credit card for the deposits.
Choice 4 - Make an Inmate Deposit over the Phone
Call 877-618-3516 and provide your credit card number.
To do this you will need the inmate's offender # (inmate ID #) and full legal name.

Why Do Inmates in Sebastian County Adult Detention Center need Commissary?
Since inmates are not allowed to possess cash money while in custody, the Sebastian County Adult Detention Center allows the inmate's family and/or friends to purchase products online from icaregifts.
This allows them to obtain items such as personal hygiene products, snacks, apparel, electronics and stationery supplies. Otherwise they go without, and you don't want them to be obligated to others for their basic needs.
Medical Copays, Jail Fees and other Inmate Expenses
Many jails debit (charge) an inmate's commissary accounts for medical visits, any medications including over-the-counter pain reliever, jail stay fees, restitution, etc.
Taking this into consideration when deciding how much to deposit will ensure the inmate gets the amount you wanted him to have after things are deducted.
A quick call to the Sebastian County Adult Detention Center at 479-783-4988 will let you know how much is deducted from the books for each fee related to medical issues or other jail expenses.
Important Tips and Information About Your Inmate's Commissary
Sometimes an inmate's commissary money is used to purchase items to pay gambling debts or purchase prescription medicine from another inmate. If your inmate is spending more than $10.00 a day on commissary items, you are most likely paying for him or her to gamble or buy drugs.
Some inmates, specifically those who are targeted for being weak or are in jail for rape or child molestation, are forced to relinquish their commissary to avoid regular beatings from other inmates.
If you think your inmate is being targeted for violence or having their commissary taken to avoid beatings, contact the Sebastian County Adult Detention Center and ask to investigate. If an inmate is being targeted, they will intervene and have the victim placed in protective custody, away from the general population.
Put your financial needs first and the inmate's second. Don't forget, the inmate is getting three free 2,000 calorie meals a day. The food may not be of the highest quality, but the commissary food is generally much less nutritious.
