How to Send Money to Inmates at Allred

The Inmate Trust Fund is a safekeeping account for an offender's cash, which they may have access to but not personal control over while incarcerated. Money orders, cash checks, and automated methods like Jpay can all be used to fund the account. You can also have a certain sum deducted from your checking account once monthly for deposit to a designated offender. Each month, a transaction will take place on or around the 5th of the month, with a credit to the inmate's account occurring about five days later.

Difficulties You May Have Contacting a Loved One in Allred Prison

Sometimes, the prison may lockdown because of adverse factors and emergencies such as COVID-19. In cases such as the pandemic, prisons may enforce social distancing and enclosure measures that may limit your visitation. Also, as the visitation list allows for one visitor per weekend, you may encounter challenges if another person on the visitation list visits. In such cases, you will have to communicate with other people on the list to be clear.
