Personal Property of Inmates
Signing Out Money
Inmates must approve a request to sign out money to an immediate family member and forward to the on-duty Shift Supervisor. Inmates have one opportunity for the signing out of money. The on-duty Shift Supervisor will take other subsequent requests of signing out money to a non-family member on a case-by-case basis.
A computer printed receipt shall include the amount of money to be signed out, who is receiving the money, their relationship to the inmate, and the inmate’s signature.The inmate’s signature is required to show his approval of the transaction. Inmates shall be permitted to sign out money only once per incarceration. The Confinement Division Commander may give permission for an inmate to sign out money more than one time.
Inmates shall not be permitted to transfer money to another inmate in the Vanderburgh County Jail.
