General Information

ConnectNetwork allows offenders to utilize Offender Phone Accounts (PIN Debit Accounts) that allow them to make calls from a phone account that they control. Funds placed into the Offender Phone Account may be used by offenders to make calls to anyone on their approved call list, and the expense of the call will be deducted from their Offender Phone Account. Offenders can not call cell phone numbers using their debit account.

To make a deposit to an Offender Phone Account through ConnectNetwork, visit and establish a deposit account. You will need to know the Offender ID number of the offender for whom you wish to make a deposit.
