Information on Public Communications Services (PCS) Inmate Telephone System

Public Communications Services, or PCS, offers different facility-approved inmate communications services all over the country. Their service options include:

Collect Calls for Inmates

Inmates can make collect calls to approved numbers using the PCS service. The service does not allow calls to the following:

  • Cell phone numbers
  • Hospital phone numbers
  • Business or commercial phone numbers
  • Local phone company numbers that do not bill collect calls

PCS Daily Dial

PCS offers a prepaid inmate calling solution, Daily Dial, for those who cannot use the collect call option. This service is helpful when:

  • There is a local telephone company restriction on collect calls
  • There is a limit on collect calls that can be received
  • One cannot receive inmate calls on a cell phone, hospital phone, office or commercial phone
  • The local phone provider does not allow billing for collect calls
  • The high cost of collect calls cannot be managed within the inmate calling budget

Once the PCS Daily Dial prepaid account is set up and funded, calls can be received with 15 minutes. Payments can be made over the phone, by credit card, debit card, Western Union, Moneygram, money order or cashier’s check. A minimum payment of $50 is required to set up or recharge a Daily Dial Account.

Charges and Fees

  • All Daily Dial account payments made over the phone or online will incur a service fee of $6.25
  • Any payments made with the assistance of a live operator will incur a service fee of $8.00
  • Any payments made through Western Union will incur a service fee of $6.00
  • Any payments made through Moneygram will incur a service fee of $6.95, except those made through Wal-Mart Moneygram locations, where the charge is $6.25.
  • Any payments made by money order or cashier’s check will not incur any service fee

Debit Calling

PCS also offers debit calling. This allows inmates the option of paying for their calls in advance using their commissary funds and a debit phone account. There are no fees required for setting up this account and inmates can use the funds to call facility-approved numbers. These include otherwise blocked number such as cell phones, business or commercial phones, hospital phones and international numbers.

The debit phone account can either be financed by the inmates’ commissary funds or family and friends who can contribute money towards the account.
