How to Deposit Commissary money at Caldwell Parish Correctional Center
Option 1 - Dropping Money at the Jail
Bring money to the jail in person.
Either the jail personnel will process the Inmate Account payment or you will use a self-serve kiosk for Correct Solutions Group in the lobby that accepts cash, debit or credit cards.
Option 2 - Deposit Inmate Money Online
Caldwell Parish Correctional Center uses a private company called Correct Solutions Group 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.
Option 3 - Make an Inmate Deposit over the Phone
Correct Solutions Group will accept deposits over the phone with a debit or credit card. Call 877-618-3516.
To do this you will need the inmate's offender # (inmate ID #) and full legal name.
Inmate Care Packages
Caldwell Parish Correctional Center may have contracted with a third party Commissary care package company that ships predetermined Care Packages of candy and snacks.

What can an Inmate Purchase through Commissary?

The Caldwell Parish Correctional Center Commissary Instructions and Information can be found on this page. If you need more information contact the jail by calling 318-649-5600.
Who Can Put Money in an Inmate's Account?
Anybody can contribute to an inmate's books or commissary fund as long as there isn't a no-contact order in place.
Because of the ability for family members and friends to deposit money online using a credit or debit card, jail inmates can now receive funds from anywhere in the world.
WHY DOES AN INMATE NEED MONEY IN THEIR ACCOUNT AT THE Caldwell Parish Correctional Center?
Since inmates are not allowed to possess cash money while in custody in the Caldwell Parish Correctional Center, the jail maintains a 'bank account' for the inmate to purchase products and services from their commissary (canteen) store.
Commissary funds allow inmates to purchase items such as personal hygiene products, snacks and stationery supplies from the jail store.
Inmates can use money from their account to purchase phone time credits or prepaid phone cards in order to make outside phone calls to friends and family members.
Many jails also allow an inmate to bail himself out of jail if he has the funds in his account. The bail amount is typically 10-15% of the bond amount set by the court.
Inmate accounts are also used to pay the co-payment for medication and visits to the jail's medical clinic should they become ill.
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 Caldwell Parish Correctional Center at 318-649-5600 will let you know how much is deducted from the books for each fee related to medical issues or other jail expenses.
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 Caldwell Parish Correctional Center and ask to investigate. If an inmate is being targeted, most jails 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.
