Send Money to an Inmate

Warning: 

1. Money placed on an inmate’s canteen account can be used by the inmate to make phone calls to anyone they want
        and purchase items. 

2. However, money placed only on a telephone account will only permit the inmate to only call the person who set up the
        account.  (Please click here to visit the telephone section of this website for more information.)

3. To put money on a CANTEEN (so the inmate can buy approved chips, snacks and clothing etc.) and PHONES (so that
        the inmate can call anyone they want.) There is no guarantee the inmate will call you. Inmates are not obligated to do
        so even if you put money on their account. You need the inmate’s Canteen # (call the jail at 434-977-6981 ext 241
        for the number)
             a. DO this If you only want the inmate to make calls and purchase canteen.
             b. No refunds are given if inmate’s pin number becomes compromised.
                        (Inmates must put in an Inmate Request Form to have their pin number changed)
             c. When the inmate is released, any available balance goes to the inmate.
