Inmates housed in Jail are permitted to hold money on their Inmate Account. This money can be used for a variety of reasons such as to purchase items off of the commissary list. When an inmate is released from custody any money remaining on their account is returned to them.
Anyone can place funds on an inmate account. It is preferred that a Certified Check or Money Order be used as this will speed up the process of making the funds available to the inmate. Any checks, money orders etc. should be made payable to the
Island County Inmate Trust acct FBO (Inmates name).The Jail will accept Certified Checks, Money Orders, and money. It is recommended that certified funds be mailed in and that the reference line on the check indicate the inmate name and inmate name number. Funds can be delivered to the Jail during visiting sessions. You may leave those funds with the Main Control Deputy at the conclusion of your visit. You will be provided a receipt for those funds so that you may retain a record.
Personal Checks will not be placed on the inmate account. Any Personal Check received will be placed directly into the inmates property box. Upon release the inmate will receive that item.
