Telephone Calls

The staff at Prince George’s County Correctional Center encourages family and friend involvement. A special telephone system was designed specifically for inmates. This system handles outgoing calls for a small fee (collect or debit calls only). During the booking process, new inmates are only permitted telephone calls to bondsmen or relatives. Incoming calls to inmates are not accepted, but in emergency situations the chaplain (see below for phone number) will assist in putting your message through to the inmate. If you feel the emergency is urgent, you may contact the Operations Commander’s Office (see below for phone number).

Relatives may set up a telephone account that will permit incoming calls from an inmate, by contacting Inmate Telephone Incorporated (see below for phone number). Once the account is created, you can add money, check account activity, and download monthly statements at the vendor’s official website (see below for link). There are also two EZ-Deposit kiosks set up in the Correctional Center reception area, so you can deposit money (cash and credit card only) in the account.

The fees can also be debited to the inmate’s institutional account. It is important to note that a fee will be charged for each deposit ranging from $2.50-11.50, with no minimum deposit required. If you would like to block incoming calls from specific inmates, you can contact the ITI Customer Service or the Department of Corrections Information services (see below for phone number).
