This accomplishes several things within the jail, such as high quality monitoring and recording of all visitation sessions and minimal staff interaction to conduct the sessions. It also provides inmates and their families a quality system to conduct their visits as well as open scheduling for the inmate's family. Please call for visitation times - (785)-762-6583
There are no phone calls allowed to come into the jail facility for the inmates. The inmates are allowed to purchase calling cards while in custody which allow them phone access.
