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

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

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

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

Sending Money

Inmates in the Nelson County Jail 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 Nelson County Jail is not free as many people think. In order to deposit funds into an inmate’s account, you can come down to the Nelson County Jail 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 Nelson County Jail 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 Nelson County Jail 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.
