More than anything, inmates need contact with their friends and family on the outside. Jails and Prisons don’t make this easy. Many charge inmates up to $14 a minute to make a long-distance phone call. Fortunately, there is an easy way to provide the jail with a local number your inmate can call that will ring your phone and/or those of other family and friends no matter where everyone lives. An inmate can then make their calls using the local number rate while talking to friends and family long distance. This service is provided by Globaltel at Inmate Calls. To send mail to an inmate go to Jail Postcards.
City Jails generally house people who have been recently arrested and/or those awaiting trial.
