General Information About Telephone Calls from Federal Prisons

The BOP extends telephone privileges to inmates to help them maintain ties with their families and other community contacts. Ordinarily, the inmate pays for the calls; but in some cases the receiving party pays. Limitations and conditions may be imposed upon an inmate's telephone privileges to ensure they are consistent with the BOP's correctional management responsibilities. A notice is posted next to each telephone advising inmates that calls are monitored. Unmonitored calls to attorneys are permitted in certain circumstances. Third-party or other alternative call arrangements are not permitted; this ensures inmates do not have the opportunity to use phones for criminal or other inappropriate purposes.

Telephone Procedures from Federal Prisons:

  • Telephones are to be used for lawful purposes only. Any threats, extortion, or other forms of illegal activity, may result in prosecution. All inmate telephones are subject to monitoring and recording. Inmates must contact their Case Manager or Counselor to arrange an unmonitored attorney call.
  • Telephone usage has been limited to 300 minutes per month (400 minutes in November and December). It is expected that each inmate will handle his calls in such a manner that will allow the equal use of the phone by all inmates. Telephones will not be used to conduct a business.
  • Payment for other calls, for which the inmate cannot pay through normal means, will be paid via his commissary account, payable to the U.S. Treasury.
  • Inmates in Disciplinary Segregation and Administrative Detention may make a limited number of calls.
  • The Inmate Telephone System (ITS II), is a voice activated system. This is a direct dial system. You can print your telephone request from a printer in the Law Library and hand deliver it to your Counselor.
  • When you submit a Telephone Request Form and purchase telephone credits, a Personal Access Code (PAC) will be generated . Telephone credits can be purchased through the inmate telephone by following the PAC Code instructions.

To access your telephone account for information and transfers, dial 118 and follow the instructions. This function allows you to transfer phone credits, access you commissary account balance and check the remaining minutes for the month Phone credits can be transferred in whole dollar amounts only following the 4:00 p.m. count daily and all day on weekends.

1. Voice activation dial 111. To hear recording dial 112.
2. You will be assigned a nine (9) digit Phone Access Code (PAC). The PAC is your confidential code.
