Inmate Search

Unfortunately, the Runnels County Jail does not quite have its inmate list on the web. That means if you are locating an inmate or looking for further information on an inmate that is in the custody of the Runnels County Jail; you will have to contact the facility.

Please at a minimum have the inmate’s full name and their date of birth. These pieces of information will allow the correctional officer to search for the inmate in question at a much faster pace.

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 Runnels 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 Runnels 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 Runnels 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.
