Sending a Mail/Care Package

Inmates love to receive mail. Receiving mail is one of the few joys an inmate will have while they are in the Covington County Jail.

When sending mail, have your return address listed and list the inmate name and their number on everything that you send in the envelope. This will ensure that the mail will get delivered to the inmate.

Sending Money

When an inmate asks you to refill their money account, you will need to use this site. This site is what the Covington County Jail uses for the inmate’s money needs. You can fill up the inmate’s money account by using your debit and credit card. You no longer must get up and leave the house to give the inmate money.

Please advise that by using this service, you will incur a small service fee. However, the inmate will have their money much faster than the traditional send a money order method.

Phone calls

When an inmate is booked and processed into the Covington County Jail, you will need to set up an account with Consolidated Telecom. This is where you will need to put money on the account, so the inmate can use it and be able to call you. Without money or without an account, the inmate will not be able to make phone calls home.
