Can I Phone An Inmate At The Waukesha County Huber Facility?

No. Neither this jail nor any other jail allows you to directly phone an inmate.



Can I Leave A Message For An Inmate At Waukesha County Huber Facility?

The jail does not accept messages for inmates.

If there is an emergency you can speak to jail staff by phone, who will make a decision on how to get the information to the inmate.



How Does An Inmate Make A Phone Call From Waukesha County Huber Facility?

Inmates at this facility can purchase phone minutes through their commissary funds. This allows them to call anyone they wish unless there is a restraining or no-contact order in place.

You can also open an account at Inmate Calling Solutions. The account will allow the inmate to only call the phone number you attach to it.  Click here to see how to register a free account and how to fund it.



Can An Inmate Use A Cell Phone While In Waukesha County Huber Facility?

No. Inmates are not allowed cell phones in Waukesha County Huber Facility, 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.

If you provide a cell phone to an inmate and a crime is committed using that phone, you could be charged with the crime as well. In addition, simply providing a cell phone to an inmate can get you charged with contraband.



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 Waukesha County Huber Facility at 262-548-7170 and ask their policies on getting phone calls from your inmate.

If you set up an account and fund your inmate’s phone calls, set a weekly call budget and ask your inmate to stick to it. As tempting as it is to talk frequently by phone, it can cost quite a bit.

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!
