This facility does not restrict the number of calls or minutes an inmate can use on the phone each month with the following exceptions:
The inmate loses phone privileges due to behavior write-ups.
The inmate attempts to call someone he or she is prevented by court order from contacting.
The inmate continues to call a number in which the owner of the number has notified the jail that he or she doesn’t want the inmate to call.
The inmate or the entire POD is on lock-down status.
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!
