Money and Property
When an arrested person is booked into the jail/detention facility, U.S. currency at the time of booking is deposited into an inmate account under the arrestee's name. No personal or company checks will be deposited. Inmates are not allowed to transfer funds from their account to another inmate's account.

The funds in the inmate's account are available for their own use to purchase a variety of services available within the jail facility.

These services include:
  1. Booking/bonding fees
  2. Photocopying/notary fees
  3. Commissary
  4. Medical/dental charges
  5. Pay fines or court costs

Upon release, any remaining funds will be returned to the inmate in the form of an institutional check, only.


An inmate may release any or all property from jail storage, with the exception of one set of clothing that will be worn upon release or transfer. The inmate must sign to approve the property release or it will not occur.

The authorized recipient can pick up the property but must be at least 18 years old, and will be required to provide a valid Photo Identification Card, Driver License, or Military Identification Card. Identification must include birth date or Social Security Number and shall not be expired. All recipients are subject to warrant checks and arrest.

The recipient can expect significant delays in getting property released if the release was not prearranged with the inmate so that the inmate can complete the release form. We do not interrupt an inmate's work duties, classes, or court appearances to have an inmate sign a form. Once a release is approved, the physical retrieval of property is subject to staff availability.

Property can be picked up during normal business hours of 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
