You will be placed in a holding cell. If the jail is busy, you will have to wait, sometimes for many hours, before you get processed.
The first step is that you have to answer a bunch of questions, like your full name, address, birth date and an emergency contact person, and they’ll also ask about your medical and mental history. Next, you will be issued an inmate number and you will get fingerprinted. Then, any personal property you have will get taken away from you and will be stored until you are released.

If you think you will get released quickly, they will let you wear your street clothes, otherwise you you will have to wear a jumpsuit.
Once bail has been posted, you will get released from jail. This process may take from 10 minutes to all day. So, the faster you post bail, the sooner you will get discharged.

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.

How To Save Money on Inmate Calls

The prices are posted and there are at least two types of prices based on where the inmate is calling. These three things will determine how much an inmate phone call will cost: Where you are located; Where your inmate is located, What type of phone number you have.
