Orange County Central Men’s Jail Announces Major Inmate Email and Text Policy - January 4, 2023

Due to the ability of third party companies providing a secure environment for Orange County Central Men’s Jail inmates and their contacts outside the facility to communicate digitally, this facility will now (or soon) be providing the ability for digital messaging.

Secure digital messaging allows for a delay between the emails of the inmate and their friends and family, so that the jail can scan the communication for illegal or other communications against their policies.

Note that all messages, both sent and received, will be saved and will be referred to in the inmate's existing or future criminal charges.
