Inmate Commissary

Due to the fact that inmates cannot have money in their possession while in jail, an inmate trust account is created in their name to allow them to pay debts and purchase things while incarcerated. The inmate trust account system used in the Walworth County Jail is provided by our commissary vendor, Aramark Correctional Services. 

Deposits can be made into inmate’s accounts in several ways. Here at the Sheriff's Office is a reverse ATM device where cash and or credit/debit card deposits can be made. There are also options to make deposits online at or via telephone at 1-877-650-4249. The vendor does charge its own convenience fees on each of these types of deposits, but there are no additional fees charged by Walworth County. Cashier checks or money orders can also be sent to the inmate via mail, but personal checks will not be deposited. Per County Ordinance, a jail deposit fee will be applied to deposits sent in via the mail. 

Inmates on Electronic Home Monitoring will be allowed to deposit their paychecks or make deposits to pay their daily charges without being charged a jail deposit fee. Electronic Home Monitoring inmates are charged a daily board fee each day of incarceration to help offset some of the costs of the program.  

Items are made available for inmates to purchase through commissaries that include hygiene, snack food, greeting cards, and small game items like playing cards or dominoes. Purchases are restricted to no more than $50 per order, and inmates are allowed to order twice per week. Additional ICare packages can also be purchased directly by family and friends for inmates via  . There is a limit of one ICare package per month due to storage available in the cell.

Additional comfort food options are made available for inmate purchase from the kitchen vendor on certain times and days that include items like soda, pizza, tacos, burgers, chicken, and french fries.
