First you will answer some basic questions, like what is your full legal name, your address, date of birth and an emergency contact person, and they’ll also ask you about your mental and medical history. Next, you will be issued an inmate number and you will be fingerprinted. Then, any personal property you have will get taken away from you and stored until you get released.
You will then be allowed to use the telephone so you can get in touch with a member of your family, friend, or somebody else who can help you get out.
If you think you will get released quickly, you might be able to keep wearing street clothes, if not you you will have to change into a jail issued jumpsuit.
When you finally post bail, you will get discharged from jail. This process will take anywhere between 30 minutes to all day. In simple terms, the faster you can pay your bail, the faster you will get released.

Guidelines For Sending Money To An Inmate
Before you send any money you should find out what online money transfer companies the jail your inmate is incarcerated in uses. The exact method that the Boswell Police Jail uses changes frequently, so it is best to call them at 765-869-5951 to get the current payment method.
You may be required to be on the inmate’s visitation list in order to send them money, and be aware that they may have a limit on how much you deposit at one time, like $200-300 at a time, or a limit on how much money may be in the inmate’s account at one time.
Some of the money transfer firms being used by various facilities include JPay, MoneyGram, AccessCorrections, OffenderConnect, Touchpayonline, JailATM, WU, smartdeposit, and tigercommissary.
If an inmate has fines or are required to pay restitution then they will be subject to garnishment of their commissary/trust account. If the inmate has a garnishment, then money to pay them will be taken from the inmateâ€™s bank account. In some cases it may be a percentage or the entire amount of the obligation, but the actual percentage depends on the circumstances. We recommend that inmates talk to the counselor at their facility and try to find out. You can also try to make an arrangement so that only a percentage of your commissary funds are taken, instead of all your funds take at one time.
The commissary is the Boswell Police Jail store. An inmate can buy several different things here, like toiletries, snacks and writing supplies. Bear in mind that you will most likely need to buy things from the commissary on a daily basis, and any infractions will get that privilege taken away from you.
The Commissary will sell a selection of different products that inmates can purchase if they have sufficient funds in their trust account. These items include clothes, shoes, small snacks and other food items, as well as hygiene products including soap, shampoo, and disposable razors for shaving. The commissary also sells other things like books and magazines, televisions and radios, playing cards, headphones, MP3 players, and electronic tablets. They also sell everything need to write home to family, friends, and loved ones: paper, envelopes, and stamps. If an inmate is indigent and cannot afford paper and stamps, the jail will provide these things to an inmate who has not had any money in their commissary account for at least 30 days.
