The facility has entered into an agreement with inmate phone service provider - IC Solutions. IC Solutions integrates with our commissary system from Keefe - families will not need to deposit funds in two different accounts. Residents will be able to make calls against the current balance in their Keefe Accounts, this eliminates the need for pre-paid calling cards. Additionally, the rate fee schedule (at left) for phone calls is directly in line with current FCC guidelines. Some calls will be lower in cost and others higher, but charges will only be made for actual minutes on the phone - no flat rate/per call fees will be charged.
Resident phones are located in the dayroom area and equipped for outgoing calls only. The hours of use are from 8:00 a.m. - 9:00 p.m. Residents will be provided with a PIN number in order to make a phone call on resident phones. When making an initial phone call the resident will be prompted to record their name, which will be used for all calls out.
If family or friends have a block on their phone, or are experiencing other difficulties with the phone system, Please call or contact IC Solutions.
Resident Commissary services are provided through the Keefe Commissary Network.
