All incoming mail, except privileged mail, is inspected prior to being delivered to the inmate.

Books and magazines are fine to send to inmates in the mail, so long as it is shipped in new condition and directly from the publisher or a major online retailer like Amazon.

Sending Money

Any money sent to an inmate should be in the form of a money order and made out to the inmate. The Buncombe County Jail does not accept personal checks or cash via mail.

Money can also be sent to an inmate via credit card. There are three options for making credit card deposits and all are through third-party vendors

Depositing funds for inmate spending accounts using a credit card can either be done at the lobby kiosk at the jail or by using the Securus Technologies.

Telephones are available for inmates at Buncombe County Jail throughout the day and evening and are subject to the housing schedules.

Incoming calls to inmates are not possible. Inmates can make outgoing calls in one of three ways:

  • Collect

  • Direct Billing to phones with established pre-paid accounts

  • Direct purchase of phone time from their jail account

Inmates are able to buy phone time in one-minute increments directly from their Jail Account if they have funds available.

If you establish a pre-paid account for an inmate with Securus, the inmate will only be able to use those pre-paid funds for calls to the phone number associated with that account. Any calls to that number from an inmate at the jail will be debited from the remaining amount in the account.
