How can I send money to an inmate?

When an inmate is processed into the jail, all currency is taken from him and forwarded to the inmate services unit. It is then placed in his personal account for his use during incarceration. Family and friends may deposit money into an inmate's account from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. at the jail's inmate services unit, 200 Jefferson County Parkway in Golden (enter from the upper west parking lot). The following forms of funds will be accepted:

  • Checks from other law enforcement agencies
  • U.S. currency
  • U.S. Postal Service money orders
  • Cashier checks
  • Certified funds, made payable to the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office (JCSO)

No personal checks or credit cards will be accepted. No money or property may be exchanged between inmates.
