Jackson County Jail & Detention Center Inmate & Family Voicemail

Securus Outbound Voicemail provides your inmate an opportunity to leave a message for their family and friends when a call to their mobile goes unanswered. Once the inmate leaves a voicemail, a text message containing a link will be sent to the dialed number. The recipient of the inmate's voicemail is then sent to a web form to pay and listen to the message. The voicemail will be available for up to 30 days after it is sent, and then another 30 days after it is paid for.

Can I communicate by Email with an Inmate?

Securus Technologies eMessaging allows family and friends to communicate with an inmate using a messaging service that works like email.

Because Jackson County Jail & Detention Center contracts with Securus for their phone service, they either already or may soon allow eMessaging for their inmates.

Check to see if eMessaging is available:

*WARNING* Everything you write or any attachments that you send will be seen by authorities in your inmate's facility, will be stored on their servers indefinitely and can be used against them in court proceedings. 

We recommend you download the app in order to use eMessaging.

- Send a text Message - 1 stamp

- Purchase a reply for your inmate - 1 stamp

- Attach up to 5 photos - 1 stamp each photo

- Share up to 5 eCards - 1 stamp each eCard

- Send just a photo with no text - 1 stamp

- Send a 30 second VideoGram - 3 stamps

 

Things your inmate can do using eMessaging:

- Reply to your eMessage if you attach a return stamp

- Receive transferred stamps you share with them (no cost to transfer)

- When available, they can purchase their own stamps from their Inmate Debit Account

 

How it works:

- You must have a Securus Account and be logged in

- Messages are sent and received from the Securus Website or the Securus Mobile App

- Find Jackson County Jail & Detention Center here, check to see if they have eMessaging yet, and if they do, find your inmate, purchase a book of stamps and send an eMessage.

*WARNING* 

- All eMessages, Photos and Videos are first REVIEWED by Jackson County Jail & Detention Center Staff.

Important Tips About Jail Phone Calls

Many jails and prisons restrict the amount of time that an inmate can use the phone by placing daily and monthly limits, so try to pace yourself and not use up all your time at the beginning of the month.

Jails limit an inmate's phone time to certain hours of the day, so it is important you keep a regular schedule that works for both you and your inmate.

If your inmate does not call you during the time you both have scheduled, don't panic. There are often long lines for phone use. When a jail is on lockdown due to a fight or other security issue they do not allow the phones to be used.

Phones are the only way for an inmate to hear your voice and temporarily 'escape' the loneliness of incarceration, so use your time well. Arguing about anything will leave you both feeling empty and guilty, so avoid it at all costs.

All phone conversations are recorded. Whatever you talk about, can and will be used against your inmate in court. Never discuss their pending criminal case!

Also, be warned that some phone providers are collecting voice prints for a database which law enforcement agencies are building.
