Sending Money

While you may think that the Hancock County Jail will provide inmates with everything they could ever think of, there will be items and things that the correctional facility will not provide.

When this happens inmates will need funds to purchase said things from the commissary. This is where you will come in.

You will need to go to the commissarydeposit.com. Here you can create an account and deposit funds using your credit and/or debit card. The money will be in the inmate’s account shortly after you finish your deposit.

Phone calls

As of late, the only way an inmate and you can talk via the telephone is if you have a landline. The inmates only way of calling you on the phone is by making collect calls. Collect calls cannot be received on a mobile phone.

If you do not have a landline, you will never get any of the phone calls from a prisoner at the Hancock County Jail.
