During incarceration, an individual financial accounting of all funds belonging to an inmate is maintained by the facility. These funds may be brought from another facility at the time of transfer to PCRJ or deposited on the inmate's behalf by family or friends. Additionally, an inmate may earn money from work assignments while incarcerated. If an individual wishes to deposit money on behalf of an inmate, he may do so by using the services offered through Offender Connect.
What is Offender Connect?
Offender Connect is an independent contractor which provides easy options for you to add money to an inmate’s trust fund account and/or your prepaid telephone account.
Offender Connect is the quickest way to deposit money into an inmate account. The money is credited to the account on the next business day after the deposit is made. The inmate is provided with a receipt for the amount added to his trust fund account so he is aware of the available funds. For you, the family member or friend, this means no more going to purchase a money order OR waiting for mail to be delivered!
Offender Connect is not affiliated with the Peumansend Creek Regional Jail other than to provide this service to the inmates at the facility. All fees generated by the use of any Offender Connect services are the property of their parent company, GTL.
