Inmate Funds

Funds may be brought to the Detention Center for the inmates account. Any money that the inmate comes in with upon arrest will be deposited into their account. Note: Any outstanding debt from a previous incarceration in the Converse County Detention Center will be collected every time money is entered into the inmates account. The Detention Center prefers you bring the funds in cash but money orders will be accepted. No checks will be accepted. Once the inmate is released from the Detention Center, they will be issued a check in the amount of the balance on their account.

Adding money to your friend or family member’s books:

Your loved one has different accounts for different purposes while they are in here. Here are the different accounts they use, and how to add money to them:

Commissary Account (their “books”)

This is their account for all general purchases. With money on their books, they can buy items in jail such as snacks, extra hygiene supplies, and some extra clothing items.

  • To add money to their books, you have several options:

  1. You can bring cash to the visitor’s window at the jail, located at 1201 Mesa Drive in Douglas, WY. We do not charge a fee to accept cash here.

  2. You can go online to add money via credit card, the website is www.smartdeposit.com.

  3. You can add money over the phone, by dialing 1-866-394-0490.

  • If an inmate has an outstanding debt to the jail, 50% of any money deposited in this account will be collected when it is added to their books, until the debt is satisfied.

  • Inmates can transfer money from this account to their phone time account.

 

Phone Time Account

This is their account with our phone provider, ICSolutions, just for making phone calls from the phones provided in each cell block, or “pod”.

 

  • Inmates cannot transfer money from this account to any other account.

 

Tablet Time Account

  • This is their account just for using the paid features on the tablets that the jail provides for inmate use. Some of these paid features are listening to music, watching movies, and sending and receiving text and picture messages with friends and family members.

 

  • To add money to their tablet time account, you go to www.gettingout.com, create an account, and deposit funds.

  • Inmates cannot transfer money from this account to any other account.
