Kiosk in the Lobby of the jail.
Once the inmate is released he/she will be responsible for coming into the front office with a photo ID and receiving a check for the balance. If the inmate is transferred out to another facility the money follows them to that new facility.
You may not bring any item in for the inmate.
Inmates receive their basic hygiene packet when they are booked in.
- Medication must have a prescription label with the inmate’s name or prior approval from the RC Jail medical staff for medication not prescribed.
- Trustee items: you will be notified if your inmate is assigned to a trustee and they will be able to tell you what they need.
- Books/Bibles are NO longer accepted at the jail. The only books/bibles that are accepted must be shipped by the publisher/bookstore directly to the inmate at the jail.
- We do not take any notes or messages for the inmates at the front counter.
- Court information is available through the court clerk’s office at the courthouse. All court is held at the courthouse, we no longer hold court in our building, and this includes video court. When a subject is booked into jail on a new charge the paperwork goes over to the courthouse and awaits a judge to set the bond amounts. Most of the time we do not get this information until approximately 4:00 pm.
- Bonds: if you are paying a cash bond you will need to pay that at the Night Bailbonds Door on the northwest corner of the building (north side of the big garage). The Night bail bonds door is also where you will meet a bondsman if you have hired one to bond the inmate out.
Commissary is only ordered on Tuesday mornings.
The money for inmates commissary “books” can be deposited into the black kiosk in the detention center lobby. The machine accepts cash only. The money must be deposited by NO LATER than Tuesday at 8:00 AM, in order for the money to be available for that week’s order. All commissary orders are NON-REFUNDABLE. If the inmate orders commissary and gets out before it is received he/she CANNOT get a refund. They will be able to pick up the commissary items at the jail. The inmates are notified of their account balances daily via kiosks.
Commissary funds are only released to the inmate ONLY. We DO NOT release the inmate’s funds to anyone else for any reason! Once the inmate is released he/she will be responsible for coming into the front office and receiving a check for the balance. If the inmate is transferred out to another facility the money follows them to that new facility.
