Inmates are allowed to make two free phone calls after the conclusion of the booking process. All subsequent phone calls by inmates are collect calls only. Inmates are not able to receive incoming phone calls, and corrections staff will not pass messages to inmates. Exceptions can be made for attorneys, clergy or medical/mental health officials.

How to accept a collect phone call from an inmate

Notice: This account allows YOU TO RECEIVE a collect call from an inmate but DOES NOT allow an inmate to call other phone numbers.

Victim Notification Services

VINELink is the online version of VINE (Victim Information and Notification Everyday), the National Victim Notification Network. This service allows crime victims to obtain timely and reliable information about criminal cases and the custody status of offenders 24 hours a day. Some states can display this website in Spanish. Please click on the state where you wish to search. You will see an "English | Español" toggle in the upper right-hand corner if this option is available. When an offender's custody status changes, victims and other concerned citizens can also register to be notified by phone, email, text message (SMS), or TTY device. Users can also register through their participating state or county toll-free number.
