Can I Phone An Inmate At The Florissant City Police Jail?

Can I Leave A Message For An Inmate At Florissant City Police Jail?

Most jails only allow you to leave a message for an inmate in case of a serious emergency such as a death in the family.

Other than for a family emergency, the only way to communicate with an inmate is by them phoning you, leaving you an email message using the jail's secure (and closely monitored) electronic message system, mail or during a visit.

Many jails are now contracting with a third party service (for a fee) which allows you to leave a recorded phone message for an inmate.

How Does An Inmate Make A Phone Call From Florissant City Police Jail?

Collect Calls

This jail provides phones in each cell for inmates to make collect calls to friends and family members.
Check with your phone company to see if it allows collect calls.
You might be asked to pay a deposit to the phone company before collect calls can come through.

Some companies block all calls from penal facilities.



Can An Inmate Use A Cell Phone While In Florissant City Police Jail?

No. Inmates are not allowed cell phones in Florissant City Police Jail, although getting access to a cell phone in jail has become more common.

Some states such as California have made it a criminal offense to use and possess a cell phone and will file additional charges when it can be connected to an inmate. Cell phones are most often smuggled into the jail and then sold to the inmates by jail staff.



Can I Communicate By Email With An Inmate?

A growing number of jails now offer email services to inmates and their families. This can save you time by letting you view your email from your smart phone, computer, or tablet, whenever you wish.

You don't have to deal with envelopes, stamps or the post office.

Inmates like it because the emails typically eliminate delayed mail runs so they can get your correspondence quickly and send responses immediately.

Jail staffs like it as it eliminates concerns about contraband entering the facility in envelopes and on paper. It also allows the jail to have an electronic record that can be called upon at any time.

Anything you or your inmate writes in an email service is put through a filtering program that looks for certain words related to criminal and/or gang activities.

There have been multiple cases in which emails between inmates and their friends or loved ones have been used as evidence in criminal court cases to convict them or to file new charges.

Important Tips About Jail Phone Calls

If you were unable to find the information you were looking for on this page, call Florissant City Police Jail at 314-831-7000 and ask their policies on getting phone calls from your inmate.

This jail does not restrict phone usage during normal waking hours, however, sometimes phones are turned off for disciplinary reason or jail staff decisions.

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!
