Add Funds Online You can add funds to an Inmate's Account online by clicking on the logo

Inmate Commissary Account:
The Prison maintains an individual commissary account for each inmate.  All cash held by an inmate at the time of commitment is credited to their account. The inmate will use an automated money kiosk to deposit their cash onto their Inmate Commissary Account. The inmate will also be able to use a Debit/Credit Card to deposit additional funds to their account during the intake process. While at the Prison, inmates may utilize funds from their commissary account to purchase items from the Prison commissary vendor.  Upon written request, funds may be sent out to individuals.  The Warden or his designee shall make a decision on a case by case basis.  Inmates may pay fines, costs, or Act 96 and 139 fees from their account by making a written request to the Deputy Warden or Warden.

Inmates are permitted to receive funds while incarcerated.  Money can be deposited on an inmates account by friends and family 3 different ways. They can deposit money through the Greene County Website by clicking the link on the Prison’s page or going to They can deposit cash using the automated money kiosk in the Prison’s Lobby. They can deposit money using a Debit/Credit card using the automated money kiosk in the Prison’s Lobby. The depositor can only deposit $300.00 per week. There is a fee associated with each deposit. A fee of $3.25 will be assessed for cash deposits. A fee of $3.25 will be assessed for Debit/Credit deposits of $1-$25. A fee of 10% will be assessed for Debit/Credit card deposits of $26-$300.  Negotiable items will NOT be accepted through the mail or at the Administrative Assistances window.

Inmates are permitted to spend no more than one hundred dollars ($100.00) per week on commissary purchases.  Commissary items must be ordered by phone, utilizing an assigned Personal Identification Number (PIN), between Tuesday 6:00 a.m. and Sunday 9:00 p.m.  Orders cannot be placed on Mondays.  Commissary orders are usually delivered on Wednesday and are distributed as soon as possible without interfering with other ongoing activities, but no later than Saturday.  Holidays may affect the delivery and distribution day.

Upon release, inmates are issued a debit card for the remaining balance in their account. Inmates transferring to another facility will have their monies refunded by check.

NOTE:  Inmates housed in disciplinary, restricted or segregated housing are permitted to purchase only hygiene items and writing materials. Fifty percent of monies received will be withheld to cover debt incurred (i.e. haircuts, indigent items, re-imbursement for damages etc.) Monies owed (debt) will be re-activated at re-commitment(s) until the debt is satisfied.

Indigent Inmates:
Inmates are considered indigent when they have a commissary account balance of less than $2 for seven (7) consecutive days. Indigent inmates may request an indigent packet (contains toothpaste, toothbrush, comb, deodorant, paper, pen, and stamped envelopes) or selected hygiene items as needed. The cost of this packet will be deducted from any future funds received. All inmates, regardless of need, will be given access to body wash/shampoo to maintain their personal hygiene.

Telephone Calls:
Upon completion of the initial processing, inmates are permitted to complete collect or debit calls from their assigned housing unit. If they are unable to complete calls, inmates will receive paper, pen and envelope to make notification of their whereabouts. Postage will be provided by the Prison.

All housing units have telephones that can be accessed from 6:00 a.m. until 9:00 p.m. daily for the unlimited use by inmates for outgoing calls. The telephones are provided with an on-site cutoff that may be utilized during meals, medication distribution and other times as deemed necessary to ensure the security of the Prison. The telephone system allows for calls to be collect or for the cost to be automatically deducted from the inmate’s commissary account. Inmates are given a Personal Identification Number (PIN) to access the phone system. This number shall not be shared with other inmates. Inmates should request a new PIN if they believe their current PIN has been compromised.
The Prison inmate telephone system is equipped with a computerized monitoring system to record, track calling patterns, prevent telephone fraud and enforce the Prison's rules for telephone use.
 Any action that is intended to bypass or overcome the Prison's telephone security system is prohibited. The following acts are prohibited and may result in loss of phone privileges:
  • Three-way calls.
  • Threats.
  • Contact with witnesses (or potential witnesses.)
  • Using another inmates PIN.
  • Stealing another inmates PIN.
  • Letting another inmate use their PIN
  • Damage or attempting to damage the phone system.
  • Criminal activity.



When an inmate first arrives for commitment, he/she is administratively and physically processed. The inmate is interviewed by the intake officer to determine the offender's medical and mental condition. The inmate is required to provide basic routine information necessary to complete the intake process. During the intake process, inmates are subject to a pat-search and/or unclothed search, depending on the offender's charges and/or demeanor and/or past record. The inmate will be subject to being photographed and fingerprinted. The inmate will go through a medical screening which includes a delousing protocol.

Bail is set by the District Magistrate at the time of arraignment. During  business hours, bail may be posted at the office of the arraigning Magistrate. During non-business hours bail can be posted with the On-Call Magistrate, time and location will be at the Magistrates discrestion. Bail can also be arranged with a professional bail company.

Sentence Computation:
Inmates who are sentenced to serve incarceration time at Greene County Prison are informed of their projected minimum and maximum release date upon initial receipt of the sentencing order by the Prison. Since, in most cases, actual release authority must be received from other agencies, these projected dates are subject to concurrence and, therefore, may be changed. If a change occurs, the inmate will be informed. Prison personnel are not responsible for resolving discrepancies that an inmate believes may exist in any sentencing order or other type of detention authority. Therefore, Prison personnel are prohibited from contacting judicial authorities on behalf of an inmate. Inmates must pursue legal matters concerning their detention and/or sentence either personally or through their counsel. Only Prison personnel the rank of Shift Commander and above are authorized to calculate and inform inmates of their projected release date.

A Detainer is a lawful hold from another County lodged against an inmate. It is the Prison's policy to inform inmates when a detainer is lodged against them. Inmates are given a copy of the detainer when it is received by the Prison. Inmates will be released to the detaining authority when their local legal obligations are met.

Inmates receiving a sentence with a minimum and maximum release date must make application for parole. Prison personnel shall initiate the application process approximately 10 days prior to an inmate's minimum release date. Inmates applying for parole are responsible for payment of Acts 96 and 139 fees ($60 combined) prior to a parole application being completed and subsequently submitted. The Prison requires a receipt from the Clerk of Courts office verifying payment of the same.
Generally, it takes one to two weeks for parole applications to be processed through the parole/probation office, district attorney and the sentencing judge. Inmates should, therefore, ensure these costs are paid as soon as possible. Inmates will not be released on their minimum release date if parole has not been granted by the sentencing judge.Those incarcerated for Parole/Probation Violation(s) do not have to re-apply for parole. They will be released upon completion of their sentence. District Magistrates issue flat sentences with no probation period following incarceration. Inmates are released upon completion of the sentence. NCIC (National Crime Information Center) checks are conducted on all inmates prior to release. Inmates will be detained if a detainer or "person wanted" status is discovered, regardless of sentence completion.
