The jail kiosk, open 24/7, is located inside the “Bonding/Release” entrance. Bond may be posted using cash or card. Family members can also place money in an inmate’s account for them to purchase phone time or commissary items.

The facility includes a space for rehab programming and a behavioral health unit. The center will also house the state’s first forensic psychiatry fellowship to treat inmates with mental illness.
