Sending Money

Phone calls

The Shawnee County Juvenile Detention Center used Paytel for their phone service.

What does this mean for you?

You do not have to worry about collect calls, like the old days. Of course, the inmate will have the opportunity to make a collect call, if needed as well.

But, with the Shawnee County Juvenile Detention Center using Paytel you will have an easier time keeping up to date with when their phone account needs money, how the money is being used, and who the inmate is calling.

Inmates in the Shawnee County Juvenile Detention Center will only be permitted to have a 15-minute in length phone call, so everyone gets a chance to use the telephones.
