INMATE COMMISSARY- Inmates have the opportunity to purchase items from our contracted Commissary provider “KEEFE” through an internet-like order process. Orders are transmitted to Keefe every Thursday and the items are delivered to the inmates on Monday and Tuesday. Examples of available items include cookies, crackers, tuna, meat sticks, candies, chips, undergarments, shorts, thermal tops and bottoms, and hygiene products.
INMATE PROPERTY- Each inmate is approved to receive (within the first seven days of incarceration) from their family/friend socks, underwear, t-shirts, and bras with the following guidelines. All items must be new in unopened packaging. If the packaging has been opened, staff will not be permitted to accept the items. All items must be white (it is okay if the socks have grey on the heels/toes). The inmate will be given up to five of each item (five pairs of socks) and if there are excess in the packages, they will be placed in the inmate’s personal property. Each inmate is also allowed to receive 1 Bible or other religious text in a soft cover version only.
BOOKS-Other than their softcover Religious Text, inmates may not receive books from anywhere except delivery directly from the publisher. The detention center maintains a library with a wide variety of books which are made accessible to the inmates.
BONDING- All bonds will incur a State Fee of $200.00 or 20%, whichever is less. All bonds require a cash bond fee of $20.00. There are three ways to post an inmates bond.
Cash – a cash bond requires 100% of the bond plus the above fees be paid in cash funds to the Detention Center. In turn, the money is paid to the court as “Guarantor” that the accused will make his/her court appearances.
Bonding Company – please call or visit the Law Enforcement Center for an up to date list of approved bonding companies. Per Georgia Law, staff is not permitted to make a recommendation.
Property Bond – Please call or visit the Law Enforcement Center for a complete list of required documents and fees if you have personal property you would like to use as collateral on a bond.
