TELEPHONE CALLS The Brown County Sheriff's Office maintains four phones in each housing unit. The inmates have access to the phones to make collect calls to the persons of their choice. Inmates may also purchase inmate calling cards through the commissary which allows the inmate to call directly without any charge to the person being called. No other types of calling cards are permitted. A computerized record is maintained of every phone call made and all phone calls are recorded. Incoming calls are not accepted nor are messages given to the inmate to make calls.
