Are commissary items used for gambling in the Calaveras County Adult Detention Facility?
Yes. Because inmates do not have access to actual cash money in the Calaveras County Adult Detention Facility, snacks, candy, brand name hygiene products and other sundries inmates can get from commissary and care packages you ship to them are used as currency, thus for gambling. In addition to gambling, commissary items can be used to purchase services such as haircuts, tattoos and cell cleaning. Unfortunately, in many cases, commissary items are also used to purchase protection from other inmates who wish them harm. If your inmate is needing more than $10 a day for commissary, they are getting pretty fat or are using the items they purchase for gambling purposes or personal protection.

How much money should you send an inmate in Calaveras County Adult Detention Facility for commissary?
A reasonable amount of commissary money you should send your inmate is whatever your budget allows.

You are the one that still has bills to pay; rent, utilities, food, phone, children's needs, gas, car payments and all the other stresses of life. As hard as the pressure you are getting to send money, your needs and the children's come first. Calaveras County Adult Detention Facility limits the inmates to receiving no more than $300-400 per month in commissary money and/or care packages, not including phone expenses, but realistically an inmate can get by on less than $100 per month of products and be comfortable.
