F.A.Q's

How do I give an Inmate Money?

When Inmates are booked into the Morgan County Jail, the Cash that they have on them is placed into an account at the Sheriff’s Office that allows them to purchase items from the jail commissary. Friends and Family members may also send a money order, or place money in the kiosk in the MCSO Lobby.


How do I add money to an Inmate's phone?

An Inmate may purchase a phone card off of the jail commissary to be used for making phone calls. Friends and family members may also visit  TELMATE or call 866.516.0115 to be assisted in adding money.
