Frequently Asked Questions

 

 

1. WHO DO I NEED TO TALK TO IN REFERENCE TO AN INCIDENT THAT OCCURED?

 THE ANSWER TO THIS QUESTION CAN DIFFER. USUALLY WHEREVER THE INCIDENT OCCURED AT, YOU NEED TO FIND THE AGENCY THAT HAS JURISDICTION THERE.  IT DOES NOT MATTER WHERE YOU LIVE, IT MATTERS WHERE THIS INCIDENT HAPPENED.

 2. WHERE CAN I PAY A TICKET?

 EVEN IF THE TICKET SAYS PRAIRIE COUNTY SHERIFF ON THE TOP AND WAS WRITTEN BY OUR DEPUTY, WE WILL NOT HAVE THE TICKET AMOUNT NOR WILL WE BE ABLE TO ACCEPT PAYMENTS. YOU MUST CONTACT THE COURT THAT IS LISTED ON THE TICKET. THE COURT INFORMATION IS LISTED BY THE COURT DATE AND TIME, OR ON THE BACK OF THE TICKET SOMEWHERE. THIS IS WHO YOU NEED TO CALL TO MAKE PAYMENT ARRANGEMENTS. WE WILL NOT HAVE THAT INFORMATION AVAILABLE AT OUR DEPARTMENT.

3. CAN I TALK TO SOMEONE YOU HAVE IN JAIL, OR CAN YOU PASS THEM A MESSAGE?

THE ONLY TIME ONE OF OUR DETAINEES IS ALLOWED TO USE OUR PHONE IS IF THEY ARE CALLING A BONDSMEN OR THEIR LAWYER.  THEY ARE ALLOWED A PHONE CALL WHEN THEY FIRST ARRIVE TO ADVISE SOMEONE WHERE THEY ARE AND TO TRY TO MAKE ARRANGEMENTS TO BOND OUT.  AFTER THAT THEY ARE ABLE TO PURCHASE A PHONE CARD THROUGH OUR COMMISSARY COMPANY. THESE PHONE CARDS ARE THE ONLY ONES THAT WILL WORK WITH THESE PHONES. PLEASE DO NOT CALL TO THE SHERIFFS DEPARTMENT AND ASK TO SPEAK TO AN INMATE, OR ASK US TO PASS A MESSAGE, UNLESS IT IS AN EMERGENCY WE WILL NOT PASS IT ON.

4. WHAT ITEMS ARE INMATES ALLOWED TO HAVE?

INMATES ARE ALLOWED 3 WHITE SHIRTS, 3 WHITE PAIRS OF SOCKS, THREE PAIRS OF UNDER CLOTHES. ANY HYGIENCE PRODUCTS THAT ARE CLEAR ARE ENCOURAGED. WE PROVIDE TOOTHBRUSHES SO PLEASE DO NOT BRING THOSE.
