Securus Technologies, Inc provides the inmate telephone service to our facilities. These services allow inmates to make collect calls or purchase a calling card. Phone services are normally available to inmates between 8:00 a.m. and 10:30 p.m.
An inmate can contact family and friends by calling collect from inmate telephones in the jail, but persons receiving the call must be willing to accept the charges. Inmates cannot receive incoming calls and employees are not allowed to deliver personal messages.
Inmates can purchase a nonrefundable calling card with funds from their inmate account which will allow them to make calls from telephones in the jail without causing a burden to persons receiving the call. Cards can be purchased in $10 and $20 dollar amounts and can be used as regular calling cards upon release.
Call Limits and Fees
Calls are limited to 25 minutes per call. Calls to phones in the state of Georgia are $1.95 per call and out of state calls are $3.00 per call. International calls are not permitted.
You may block calls from inmates by pressing “6” (when prompted) when you are called by an inmate. We do not remove blocks on phones per inmate request.

This facility utilizes a 3-way prevention system to detect and terminate all potential 3-way calls. Understanding what causes a 3-way call termination can help prevent false 3-way call interruptions.
To avoid false call termination:
