Unfortunately, as of 2019, the Macon County Detention Center does not have their inmate database available on the web for you to leisurely search.

With the technology ever so advancing, it will be a matter of time before the Macon County Detention Center makes their database public. County jails all over the United States are slowly making their inmate databases public for the community to sift through.

Until the Macon County Detention Center does this next step, you will have to get in contact with the Macon County Detention Center to find out all the information you need about the inmate in question.

Sending a Mail/Care Package

Nationwide Inmate Records Online Check

Jail records, court & arrest records, mugshots and even judicial reports.

One of the very few privileges an inmate can get here at the Macon County Detention Center is being able to send and receive handwritten letters from their loved ones back home.

The Macon County Detention Center supports inmates in contacting their family and friends, so once they get released from the facility that have a support system on the outside.

You are permitted to write to an inmate. When you send any sort of mail to the Macon County Detention Center you should always keep your name and return address on the envelope.

Before the inmate will receive your letter, it will be examined by a Macon County Detention Center employee to ensure there is no contraband coming into the facility.

Sending Money

Inmates in the Macon County Detention Center will need funds for a few different things. Inmates will need to pay their jail fees, purchase items from the commissary, and to fund their phone account.

Jail life in the Macon 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 Macon 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 Macon 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 Macon 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.
