Inmate Money - If money is brought in for an inmate and they have a debt, the money will automatically go towards that debt and not their commissary. Inmates will know if they have a debt because they will have signed a receipt acknowledging the amount charged to them. Please ask them before you hand over any money. It is not the detention officers job to know if any inmate has an outstanding debt.
