Telephone Procedures from Federal Prisons:

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.
