The Sheriff’s Office is trying a new program that allows families to purchase meals and gift baskets for inmates. According to Sheriff Ortiz, inmates will only be allowed to get these meals 2 – 3 times a week and it is a privilege that can be taken away. This encourages inmates to follow the Jail regulations so that they don’t lose their ability to receive these packages. It also allows the family to do something special for an inmate. The inmate’s family and friends can show they are thinking of him on his birthday, holidays, special occasions or can send something just to show they care.
The program has two financial benefits for the jail. The first is that they make .29 cents on each dollar and the second is that they save money by not having to provide a meal.
To use this program go to: iCare
