Pinellas jail inmates can get electronic deposits for commissary

Inmates in the Pinellas County Jail have a new and convenient way to receive money for food and personal supplies.

The Pinellas County Sheriff's Office on Tuesday unveiled a service called Access Secure Deposits, which allows inmates' family members and friends to electronically transfer money to the jail commissary.

"This technology will be a convenience for the inmates and those assisting them," Sheriff Bob Gualtieri said in a media release.

Money can be deposited into an inmate's commissary account through the Access Secure Deposits system in person, by phone at 1-866-345-1884 or online at inmatedeposits.com.

Online visitors must create a website login name and password before navigating to the Pinellas County sheriff's section, officials said. Once logged in, users will be able to direct payments to specific inmates.

Kiosks for the deposit system are available in the video visitation area and the public lobby of the jail.
