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

Each inmate will provide his assigned institution a master list of up to 20 frequently called telephone numbers inclusive of all family, personal, and legal calls. Each inmate's outgoing telephone calls will be limited to those telephone numbers he has placed on his master list. Changes may be made to the master list at the discretion of the Warden, but no less than once each quarter.

Upon the request of a telephone subscriber, the institution may block a telephone number and prevent the subscriber from receiving calls from an inmate housed in the facility.

Dormitory Housing (Minimum or Medium Custody):

Collect telephone access should be available on a relatively non restricted basis.

Requests for access outside of normally scheduled hours may be made through the dormitory officer, counselor, or shift supervisor.

The Warden shall establish a schedule for legal calls. Inmates are generally able to place legal calls during the lunch period or after the afternoon count

Cellblock Housing (Maximum Custody):

Collect telephone access is generally located in the cellblock lobby. (In those situations where the telephone is on the tier, the inmate may be allowed access during the shower or exercise period.) Lobby placement may restrict inmate access. Therefore, posted policy may limit routine personal calls for inmates assigned to cellblocks. Access may vary by inmate classification status. A time limit should be established.

In all subclasses of maximum custody, the inmate is required to request consideration for this type call from the Warden's designee        (shift supervisor, unit major, or program staff) who decides if the justification the inmate presents warrants the request. That decision is then logged. No frequency for this type call is established as the severity and duration of the emergency may vary.

The Warden shall establish a procedure for placing legal calls on a reasonable basis during normal attorney office hours.
