Before making a deposit please, note:
- You may deposit as much money as you would like to an inmate’s account - the only limitation is how much at a time. For example, if you are using the kiosk, you can only add $200, initially (with a service fee). After that deposit, you may add more money, up to $200 with an additional service fee.
- Checks and money orders are not accepted and will be returned to the sender. Inmates will be notified of any unacceptable form of funds that is returned to the sender.
- When depositing money on an inmate’s account via kiosk, online or over the phone, there is a fee. However; cash sent via mail, although not recommended, will be accepted and deposited into an inmates account without a service fee.
- Money that is deposited into an inmate’s account can take up to 24 hours for it to post on an inmate’s commissary account.
- You may make deposits to multiple inmates.
Dutchess County Jail has a commissary program that offers health, beauty, food, beverage, snack and general merchandise items for sale to inmates. Inmates will only be allowed up to two (2) orders per week in commissary items. These weekly orders cannot exceed $115, with an $85 per order limit.
Instead of adding money to an inmate’s account, you can purchase an “iCare” package of commissary items in advance and send to the inmate. Please visit Dutchessny.iCareGifts.com for a step by step purchase and delivery guide.
Before purchasing an iCare package please, note:
- There is no delivery charge to have an iCare package sent to an inmate.
- You can add money to an inmate’s account and purchase an “iCare” package for them. However, please remember the inmate can only spend $115 per week and is only allowed one (1) “iCare” package per week.
- “iCare” packages are delivered every Thursday. The deadline to ensure delivery is 10am every Thursday. If the “iCare” order is not received by 10am Thursday, the inmate may not receive the “iCare” package until the following week.
In addition to commissary items, inmates can also purchase additional “Fresh Favorite” meals, which are available each week. Inmates can order “Fresh Favorite” meals at the facility if he or she has funds available.
“Fresh Favorite” meals are counted towards an inmate’s weekly commissary order.
