Friend or Family Member

Friends and family are encouraged to maintain connections with inmates while they are housed in the DC Jail. This includes telephone and mail contact along with video visitation. 

When visiting an inmate, you have an opportunity to deposit money into the designated inmate finance account by making a payment using the Inmate Connector Kiosk in the Video Visitation Center. You can also make automated payments  through Western Union or by using the commercial service, OffenderConnect.
