How to Put Money on an Inmate Account in the Placer County Juvenile Detention

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. Click or here to see where to drop money off and whether it has to be cash or a money order.

Jail personnel will process the Inmate Account payment.

Some jails have self-serve kiosks in the lobbies that accept cash, debit or credit cards.

If you can't get your questions answered online call the Autauga County Metro Jail at 334-361-2600.

Choice 2 - Deposit Inmate Money Online

Autauga County Metro Jail and others often use 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.

Click or here to reach 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 3 - Mail the Inmate Deposit to the Jail

Mailing a deposit takes more time to process than the other methods but can be done if you live too far away to bring it in person and you don't have a debit/credit card for online deposits. Never send cash. Always send a Money Order from the US Post Office, a reputable bank or Western Union.

Make the Money Order out to the inmate's name and put their Inmate ID# in memo section of the Money Order.

Call Autauga County Metro Jail at 334-361-2600 to confirm the address to send the money order to and how they want it made out.

Failure to do this properly will delay your inmate getting his account credited and may require you to have to resubmit a second money order.

Choice 4 - Make an Inmate Deposit over the Phone

Most of the online companies will accept deposits over the phone with a debit or credit card. To do this you will need the inmate's offender # (inmate ID #) and full legal name.
