Essex County Corrections Policies and Procedures

You will be placed in a holding cell. If the jail is really busy, you will have to wait, sometimes for many hours, before you get processed.
First you will answer some basic questions, such as what is your legal name, your address, birthdate and a contact person, and also, you will also be asked about your psychological and medical history. Next, you will be issued an inmate ID number and your fingerprints will be taken. Then, any personal property you have will be taken away from you and stored until you get released from jail.
They will allow you to use the telephone so you can call a member of your family, friend, or loved one.
If you think you will get released quickly, you might be allowed to keep wearing your own clothes, but if you are not expected to make bail quickly you will be issued a jail uniform.
Once bail has been posted, you will get discharged from jail. The discharge process takes from 15 minutes to many hours. So, the faster you post bail, the faster you will be freed. Also, it will depend on whether or not you’ve been given a bond amount or if the judge still needs to determine the bail amount. For a minor charge, you will simply be booked and released on your own recognizance. When you have served your sentence and know the release date, you should plan to be discharged at any time that day – but usually in the morning.

The maximum amount you are allowed in your account is $290 per month.
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 Essex County Corrections uses changes frequently, so it is best to call them at (973) 344-0190 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 Essex County Corrections store. Inmates can purchase a number of things here, like personal items, food, and things for writing. Keep in mind that you will probably want to use the commissary every day, 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 personal hygiene products such as 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.

How To Save Money on Inmate Calls
Correctional facility phone service companies have exclusive contracts at each facility that they operate, which means that they they control how much it costs to make phone calls. The profits these phone service providers make from all phone calls that inmates make are shared with the facility, so there is no incentive for the jail or the counselors at the facility to show inmates or their family how to save money on inmate phone calls at the Essex County Corrections. The rates are posted and there are at least two different prices based on where the inmate is calling. The following 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.
For example, if your inmate is in federal prison, if you get a new local number then this will decrease your inmate’s phone call rate from $.21 per minute to only $.06 per minute.
