Property/Money Releases

Getting Your Stuff Back After Jail:

  • When leaving jail, you have to get rid of all your belongings except clothes.
  • You can pick who gets your stuff: lawyer, public defender, probation officer, or someone else.
  • Tell them where to pick it up (they’ll need a valid ID, like a driver’s license).
  • Before moving to prison, fill out a form:
    • Choose: everyone can get your stuff, or only one person.
    • Don’t pick anyone. Your stuff gets thrown away after 30 days.
  • While in jail, you can also get rid of things from your cell. Do it before moving to prison or it’s gone!
  • You can take out all your jail money within 3 days of arriving. After that, you need the boss’s permission.

Bonds & Fines

  • If the inmate has another hold like from immigration or another police department, paying the bond won’t get them released.
  • Call the Sheriff’s office at 602-876-0322 before paying if you have any questions. You’ll need the inmate’s booking number, or their full name and birthday if you don’t have it.
  • Once you pay a bond, you can’t get a refund.
  • If you pay more than $10,000, you’ll need to give your social security number. This is a law.
  • You can pay with cash, cashier’s check, money order, or credit card (Visa, Mastercard, American Express, or Discover). There’s a fee for credit card payments, and they can’t be more than $10,000 (including the fee).

Inmate Telephone System

Inmates can only make phone calls, not receive them. A company called GTL manages the calls, and you can call them to set up calling for your loved one.

Inmates can call between 7:30 am and 10:00 pm, though some jails allow 24-hour calling. Calls can be up to 20 minutes long.

If you can’t receive calls from an inmate, it might be because the caller ID number is flagged as spam. You’ll need to unblock the number(s) on your phone:
