Telecommunications Available for an Inmate

There are two ways to financially support an inmate during incarceration.  One is for telecommunications payments, which includes email, texting, and phones.  The other is through commissary deposits.  Inmates are dependent on their friends and family during this time for both visitors and money.  Both are equally important to an inmate once he has been cut off from the rest of his life.

The first thing you will need is the inmate's number.  This is used to place funds directly into their account so it is important to give that anyone wishing to make a deposit in an inmate's account.



CPCJAIL.COM takes you to INMATESALES.COM where you will create an account.  It is a website for purchasing time on a device used for communication, whether it is for the phone, Chirps for texting, or email on a computer.

You can purchase a card for phone calls, either solely to anyone or a card with the restriction to one number as specified during purchase.  

No, but a message can be taken they need to place an outside call.  But they must have funds in an account to place outside phone calls.


Texting is done on a device called Chirps.  Time is purchased, and a device is provided that has been linked directly to the inmate's account.  When the time is out, it stops working until more time is put on the account.  The jail does provide a charging station for the Chirps device. 


Email is another form of communication that can be purchased by or for the inmate.  

If you need help, call 1-877-998-5678, and phone time can be purchased on the phone, instead of the website.
