Once the 72 hours has passed the inmate will have to order all items from the commissary.
No items will be brought in during visitation on Sundays which is from 1:30 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. each Sunday afternoon.
Kimble's Commissary Services provides the inmate commissary needs. During the booking process an account is set up for each inmate. If an inmate has money in their possession during the booking process, the money will be taken and placed into their inmate commissary account.
Money can be added to the inmate's commissary account and you can write personal emails to our inmates if you go to the online link: http://www.jailatm.com or you may come to the jail any day of the week from 7am until 7pm and add funds to the inmate kiosk machine in the jail lobby with CASH, DEBIT CARDS or CREDIT CARDS.
When ordering commissary, inmates have the option to order snacks, drinks, personal hygiene items, stationary items including stamped envelopes and some clothing items. Inmates place commissary orders once a week on Tuesdays, and receive their orders on Wednesdays. When an inmate is released they will be issued a Master Card debit card for the remaining balance of their account. However, if the inmate is transferred to another jail facility of another agency they will be issued a check to take with them to that facility.
