Who can Purchase Commissary for Robert Presley Detention Center Inmates?

Anybody can purchase commissary for your inmate as long as there isn't a no-contact order in place, as this might get them in further trouble.

Because of the ability for family members and friends to purchase commissary online from Access Securepak using a credit or debit card, you and your inmate have more options.

Why Do Inmates in Robert Presley Detention Center need Commissary?

Since inmates are not allowed to possess cash money while in custody, the Robert Presley Detention Center allows the inmate's family and/or friends to purchase products online from Access Secure Pak.

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 Robert Presley Detention Center at 951-955-4500 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 Robert Presley 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.
