Contacting an Inmate at the FL DOC - Orlando CRC

Calling an Inmate

Inmate Phone Procedure

Florida prison inmates are not permitted to receive telephone calls. Inmates may place collect calls to approved numbers

When an inmate enters the Florida prison system, he/she will have an inmate telephone account established with a Personal Identification Number (PIN) and be provided with instructions for placing collect calls to family and friends. Inmate phone lists are limited to ten (10) numbers

Inmates are authorized to initiate collect calls to personal landline numbers and personal cell phone numbers. Collect calls to businesses are prohibited. Before an inmate is permitted to place a collect call, she/he must submit the telephone number, name, and address for verification and activation prior to being added to the inmate's approved call list

Call Rates Effective November 23, 2016 Local per minute call rate $.04 Prepaid and collect per minute call rate $0.14
Phone Number Approval

Approved call lists can be changed every 6 months, or sooner under specific circumstances provided in the instructions. Each time this list is submitted, all verification information must be included for any additions/changes, as well as those numbers previously approved, the inmate wishes to retain. If only the additions/changes are submitted on the call list, those numbers previously submitted and approved will be deleted. Every new number an inmate requests to be added to the approved call list must be verified and activated before the inmate is allowed to call. If the inmate is unable to complete a call after the number is approved, they should initiate a request through their Classification Office.

If family and friends are unable to receive calls or have other questions regarding receiving calls from an inmate, they may contact their local phone provider or 800-844-6591 Securus Correctional Billing Services, for assistance.

If there is a family emergency, family members are urged to contact the institution's chaplain. The chaplain will notify the inmate and he/she may be granted a special telephone call
