To place money on an inmate's account, a machine has been installed in the Campbell County Detention Center's main lobby located at 601 Central Ave, Newport, KY 41071.  This machine will allow funds to be placed on an inmate's account which then becomes immediately available for use.  Cash or credit cards are accepted by this machine.  Access to this machine is 24/7.  A $3.25 fee applies to all transactions. 


If an inmate orders commissary and is then transferred or released, orders will be held for 7 days from delivery date for pickup, after 7 days, the order will be destroyed.  Inmates that are transferred to another facility must inform a friend or a family member that the order needs to be picked up with a valid ID.

No refunds will be given on commissary orders not received or picked up.
