Jail life in the Kenton County Detention Center is not free as many people think. In order to deposit funds into an inmate’s account, you can come down to the Kenton County Detention Center and drop off a money order with the personnel in the lobby.

This will take a few days before the funds fully hits the inmates account.

Phone calls

Another one of the very few privileges that an inmate has here in the Kenton County Detention Center is that the inmate can make telephone calls to their friends and family.

Inmates can either make collect calls or they can go through the Securus Technologies, which is a phone service that the Kenton County Detention Center uses.

The downfall with making collect calls is that if you have a cell phone, you will not receive the call. Only people who have a landline will receive these calls.

However, if the inmate uses Securus Technologies, they can make calls if they have funds in their phone account. If their phone account does not have funds, they will have to resort to making a collect call home.
