Inmate Telephone Access

 How does an inmate get access to telephones while in prison?

During Admissions and Orientation (A&O), inmates are provided with information on how to obtain a Personal Identification Number (PIN) and how to establish a calling list. Inmates are allowed to have twenty (20) numbers on their approved calling list. Inmates are not allowed to use another inmate's PIN or share their PIN with another inmate. Violators are subject to disciplinary action. Inmates can access telephones at the facility they are housed to make calls, subject to the rules of that facility. In some cases, pay phones are available in the inmate housing units. These phones may only be used for purposes designated by Unit Staff. Access to telephones is a privilege. Inmates must abide by institutional rules on phone usage or their privilege may be withdrawn at any time. Restrictions on phone use will be imposed on inmates whose status would make it contrary to the disciplined operation of the institution. Inmates typically have access to pay phones in their housing units and in other designated areas of the facility.
