Alaska Department of Corrections


*** Learn how to save money on making and receiving inmate phone calls ***




The Alaska Department of Corrections has installed a telephone system in all of its correctional facilities which is designed specifically for use by prisoners. It has facility to monitor and record prisoner telephone calls. The conversations between prisoners and their attorneys are neither monitored n or recorded as required by the law. For this the department has entered all numbers from the state attorney directory into the system.

Call Procedure


When a prisoner places a call, a recorded message is played to the recipient which advises them that the call is from an inmate in a correctional facility. The recipient is then provided with the option to accept or reject the call. This allows a person who does not wish to speak to the prisoner to hang up the phone without ever having to speak with the prisoner.

Call Charges

Local calls are free. All long distance calls must be placed collect with the exception of the Florence Correctional Center which also allows prisoners to use prepaid calling cards. Charges for collect calls will depending on the distance and are as given in the table1 below.

Telephone system provider

Evercom is currently trying to secure permission from the Alaska Public Utilities Commission to use prepaid debit cards in Alaska facilities. Charges for collect calls will depending on the distance and are as given in the table1 below.
Collect calls go on the recipient's regular phone bill in areas in which Evercom can execute a billing agreement with the local telephone company. Where Evercom has no arrangement with local phone companies, the persons in these areas who wish to receive collect calls from Alaska prisoners are required to set up a billing account with Evercom and make advance payment for the amount of time he or she wishes to speak with the prisoner. To set up an account, Evercom should be contacted on its toll-free number, 800-844-6591. Operations are from 6:00 AM to 8:00 PM Alaska time.
If during a call to a inmate a person exceeds the amount of time he or she has made advance payment for, the call is allowed to be completed and carries over the charge to be deducted from the next prepayment made.
