Option 1 - Dropping Money at the Jail

Never send cash. Always send a Money Order from the US Post Office, a reputable bank or Western Union. Call the Mills County Jail first as they may want you to do this online or at the jail kiosk instead.
Make the Money Order out to the inmate's name and put their Inmate ID# in memo section of the Money Order.
