How do I receive phone calls from an inmate?


All inmates can make outside calls to approved family and friends.  No incoming calls can be received, except for voicemail messages to approved inmates. Each inmate will be given access to the telephone upon the completion of the booking process. Telephones for private use are located in each housing area.


Inmate calls (local and long distance) are billed at a per-minute rate, with no connection fees. International calls are also billed at a per-minute rate. Three-way calls are prohibited.


The calling rates for Dade County Sheriff / Jail are shown below:
