Inmate Phone Calls

  • ICSolutions is the current vendor for inmate phone services.
  • Inmates are afforded free calls at the time of incarceration and 2 free calls per week.
  • Inmates in regular housing areas may make collect calls or debit calls.
  • There are two (2) types of debit calls:
    • Prepaid Phone Account: This prepaid account enables the inmate to call your phone number using funds that you have deposited in the account. For more information and to set up an account, click here.
    • Inmate Debit Account: The inmate is able to purchase phone time with commissary funds to make debit calls directly. Friends and family can also purchase debit phone time through this link.
  • Many phone companies do not allow collect calls to cell phones. Debit calling using the methods above is the only way for the inmate to call you if your cell phone cannot receive collect calls.
