Inmate Funds

Each inmate/resident is allowed to maintain an account for the purpose of paying various fees and purchasing commissary items. The Shawnee County Department of Corrections shall only accept bank money orders, attorney trust account checks, cashier’s checks, government checks, tribal checks, and other correctional facilities’ checks. These checks and orders must be made payable to the inmate. The sender’s name and address must also be written on the money order or check for deposit to the inmate’s account. Any unauthorized classification of check received shall be returned to the sender at the inmate’s/resident’s expense. Any cash received by mail will be returned to the sender at the inmate’s/resident’s expense. If there is no valid return address, the cash shall be placed in the Commissary Account Fund. Cash will be accepted for placement on the inmate's account at the Records window, accessed through the front lobby.
