Prisoners may only make calls out and cannot receive calls. Prisoners can make collect calls or buy a phone card using their commissary account. Access to "collect call only" phones are generally available from 7:00 am to 9:30 pm. There may be circumstances affecting prisoner phone availability including: prisoner housing area, prisoner classification and other unforeseen operational issues. These extenuating circumstances can affect prisoner phone access times. Cell phones can accept collect calls by setting up a pre-paid phone account. Pre-paid phone accounts can be set up at http://www.centurylink.com/corrections/SLDOC/index.html or by calling 1-888-506-8407.
(A) Prisoners will normally have access to housing area phones from 0700 to 2130. Phone calls are limited to 15 minutes (30 minutes if using a TDD machine). Prisoners cannot bill or transfer these calls to a third party. Any attempt to do so may result in termination of the call.
1. TDD Machines are available for the hearing impaired. Requests for access to the machine may be submitted to the Housing Unit Officer on a “Prisoner Request Form.”
2. If using a TDD machine, a list of the telephone numbers must be submitted with the request in order to activate the 30 minute limit for the TDD machine.
