Inmate Phone Calls

Do you have questions about inmate phone calls? Family members want to receive phone calls but have no idea how it works.

First, typically, jails and prisons do not allow inmates to receive phone calls. There is no possibility of getting an inmate's telephone number.

There are facilities, such as work releases that you can call a number and reach an inmate. But work release centers are places where inmates live for a while after they have received a parole.They sleep at a work release and leave to work during the day.
