Each person that is in custody in the jail has a commissary account where their money is held. Any money they had on them during arrest is placed in this account. Any outstanding debt from a prior incarceration in the detention center will be collected at that time. Only cash, money orders, or cashier’s check will be accepted for deposit into their commissary account either through the mail or dropped off at the detention center. No payroll or personal checks will be accepted. If the inmate owes money to the detention center when money is added to their account part of the money added to the account will go towards this debt. When an inmate is released, the detention center issue will issue a check in the amount of the balance of their account.

All incoming mail must be delivered via the U.S. Postal System. Mail will be distributed to inmates six days a week. Incoming mail with an incomplete return address will not be delivered and will be destroyed. All incoming mail shall be opened and inspected for contraband, money orders, cash, or cashier checks. Incoming mail will be scanned, but will not normally be read unless circumstances present a compelling reason to do so. The exception to this policy is legal or official mail. Mail from an attorney, court, and court official, or identifiable legal entity may only be opened in the inmate’s presence and then only to be inspected for contraband. The inspection is strictly for the purpose of insuring that contraband is not being sent into the facility and shall be done in such a manner so as not to violate the confidentiality of the communication. Legal and official mail must be enclosed in an envelope that is readily identified as having originated from an official source before it can be treated as such, and must be clearly marked legal mail. Any mail containing contraband will not be delivered or returned.
Unauthorized items include, but are not limited to; stamps, stationery, writing instruments, items containing glue, drawings, computer generated print-outs, over-sized greeting cards, credit cards, blank checks, plastic items, jewelry, candy, food, Polaroid/instant print pictures, sexually explicit photographs, and anything used to conduct a business. Mail containing unauthorized items will be destroyed. All inmate-to-inmate communication via the mail must be approved, including mailings between other federal and state institutions. Only mail between immediate family members in custody will be approved, if the relationship is documented.
Outgoing mail (other than legal mail) will always be opened, checked for contraband and scanned for correspondence not conclusive to the safety, order and management of the facility. A Sheriff’s Office staff member will stamp all outgoing mail identifying it as ‘Inmate Mail” from an inmate at the Johnson County Detention Center.
