Phone Accounts for Inmates

The Inmate Telephone System is not owned or operated by the Vanderburgh County Sheriff's Office. Telmate Inc., an outside vendor, is currently contracted to provide inmate telephone services. 

ALL telephone calls are subject to monitoring and recording. To receive calls from a correctional facility, a touch-tone phone is required. The Vanderburgh County Sheriff's Office does not control payment agreements. Due to unpredictability of cellular service, calls made to cellular phones are made at the risk of the caller and will not be reimbursed if disconnected.
