AdvancePay® Prepaid Telephone Accounts

To accept calls from an inmate at this facility, we recommend you create an AdvancePay® prepaid telephone account. Prepaid calling works by placing money on your phone number so that when your inmate calls you the funds are deducted from the balance on your prepaid account.

The Facility Site ID is 98. To set up or fund a prepaid account, you have three options.


There is an ConnectNetwork® Kiosk in the lobby of this facility, which allows you to create a prepaid telephone account when you make your first deposit.  Once your account has been created, additional deposits may be made using the kiosk to replenish the funds in your AdvancePay® Prepaid Telephone Account.

These kiosks can be used to place funds on an inmate's telephone account whether they are housed at either facility. The kiosk's accept credit or debit cards as well as cash. Transaction fees may apply to all deposits. The Jail kiosk is available in the main lobby 24 hours a day every day.  The Geiger kiosk is available during any Geiger visiting session.
