    I feel that I need to ask.

    If funds have been deposited t his account to make phone calls or general account for mommissary how is he to know that information if its not given to the inmate? Inmate if not aware of a pin number they are assigned to check what is actually is available for them. Options inmates have are listed on website.

    • PCSO permalink

      When the inmate picks up the phone and enters their PIN there is a message waiting on them. If you do not want to rely on that system, you could always call our jail staff and they will get the message to them.

    Can an inmate receive cards made from construction paper? My kids made them for their dad.

    • PCSO permalink

      An inmate can receive a card made from construction paper, but he/she will not be able to retain it in their area. The card will be presented to him/her and he/she will be allowed to look at it. It will then be collected and placed into his/her property.

    I bought some white tennis shoes (no laces) for an inmate through online Payless website since I’m not allowed to physically send those things, but he has not received it. How can I contact the Facility’s mail and packaging office?

    • PCSO permalink

      In order for the shoes to be accepted they must have velcro (no shoelaces) fasteners. If you have any questions call (682) 229-2346

    How can I send inmate socks and boxers

    • PCSO permalink

      White socks and white underwear can be sent to an inmate via the US mail by an online retailer. On our website under divisions, click on “Jail” and then click on “Contacting an inmate”. The mailing instructions are there.

  17. Mike Burns permalink

    I sent a letter to a friend in jail and the letter bounced back to me because I had included inkjet printed pictures in the letter. Above, on this web page, it says that pictures are allowed and nowhwere does it say that inkjet printed pictures are forbidden.

    • PCSO permalink

      The website was updated today to include the policy about the ban on inkjet printed materials. If you have any other questions feel free to contact the jail staff at (817) 594-4208

  24. Cynthia Russell permalink

    Are we allowed to send travel size hygienic items from an online vendor?
    Thank YOu

    • PCSO permalink

      There are hundreds of hygiene products so, the answer to the question is Yes and No.

      Any type of item available through the commissary (shampoo, deodorant,..) will not be allowed into the jail. An individual will have to get approval from the jail before sending any other hygiene product that is not available through the commissary,

      Other items are prohibited. This list is more extensive and includes aerosols, petroleum based products, make-up, emery boards, metal objects (nail clippers, nail files, tweezers,..), etc.

      In addition, all feminine hygiene products are prohibited. Feminine hygiene products are provided to the inmates.

  25. Riley permalink

    I keep receiving calls and it says from an inmate. I do not know who it would be from?

    • PCSO permalink

      This might be a telephone scam. If you do not know who the inmate is just hang the telephone up. DO NOT press or enter any numbers, if prompted. For example, you may be requested to enter an asterisk ” * ” followed by two digits. DO NOT do this. Again, just hang the telephone up.

  26. Natalie permalink

    Is there a limit to how many pages of paper we can send to the inmate? As in written/typed letters to the inmate.

  27. Natalie permalink

    Amending my previous question. Is there a limit of how many pages I can send at one time?

  28. Kaytlin permalink

    Would a school ID surfice or does it have to be government issued to visit an inmate?

    • PCSO permalink

      If you are 17, or under, a valid school ID will be sufficient, but you must be accompanied by an adult. If you are 18, or older, you must have a valid government (US or state) issued ID or drivers license.

  29. Debra Turner permalink

    If the paperback book you want to send only comes with a dvd/cd attached, can you (at the jail) take that part out and just give the inmate the book part?

    • PCSO permalink

      Yes. After the book arrives at our facility the dvd/cd will be removed and placed in the inmate’s property. The book will then be delivered to the inmate.

  30. Janet Shelley permalink

    In order to obtain POA (Power of Attorney) over an inmate, can I take forms up to the jail to be signed or do I need to send (mail) them in?

    • PCSO permalink

      Yes. Bring the forms with you to the jail and let the Visitation Officer know they need to be filled out and notarized.

  31. Amy permalink

    Can items be purchased from Walmart.com, Amazon.com any online retailer? and what if 3 pkg of items are not sent but qty increased because of packaging. …does the additional items get saved for later, discarded, or given away?
