To deposit money into an inmate's phone account or their commissary account, you will need to create an account with PayTel.
You can deposit money online or you can come on down to the Lancaster County Jail and use the kiosk that is conveniently located in the lobby. The lobby will accept cash, credit, and debit card payments.
The Lancaster County Jail 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 Lancaster County Jail 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 Lancaster County Jail will only be permitted to have a 15-minute in length phone call, so everyone gets a chance to use the telephones.
The Lancaster County Jail knows you need some face to face time with your loved one who is in their custody.
Therefore, the Lancaster County Jail permits you to have two free lobby visits per calendar week. However, you will only be able to cash in on one per day. These free visits will only last 15 minutes in length.
You will be required to schedule your visit with a minimum of 24 hours in advance. The scheduled visit will then have to be confirmed by the inmate prior to it being set in stone.
