responsibility of each inmate to ensure that his/her family knows to put
his/her resident number on the money order. No cash or checks will be
accepted by Sheriff's Office employees.

listed on the screen and given verbally. The JailATM Lobby Kiosk accepts $1, $5,
$10, $20, $50, and $100 bills only. The inmate’s last name must be entered prior to making a deposit through the Jail ATM Lobby
Kiosk. A charge of $3.25 per transaction will be assessed for each deposit.
