Connecting with Inmates at Pulaski County Detention Center

Welcome to your source for everything you need to communicate with your incarcerated friend or loved one.

Our facility uses the communications services provided through GettingOut by Telmate. On this page, you’ll find all the information you’ll need to stay connected.

 

Identify Verification

Before you can communicate with inmates at this facility, you must first verify your identity.

You will need to confirm your identity through the Telmate Verified program before you can accept inmate phone calls. Telmate verification helps ensure the safety of you and your inmate contact by aiding in the elimination of fraud and extortion.

Choose one of these 2 methods to verify your account:

  • 1. Make a deposit: You will be verified when you make your first deposit to an inmate or telephone number. Learn more.
  • 2. Create an account: When you create a GettingOut account, you’ll be asked some questions to verify your identity. Learn more.

Phone Calls & Voicemail

Only inmates may initiate phone calls. To call you, an inmate simply dials your phone number. When receiving a call, you’ll first hear an announcement from an automated operator; “This is a call from [inmate name], an inmate at Pulaski County Detention Center. This call is subject to recording and monitoring. Press one (1) to accept all communication from this inmate and Telmate.”

If the inmate has no funds in his account, and is calling you for the first time, the call will be free for a brief period (often less than a minute). This is to allow the inmate to inform you of where he or she is, and to explain how calls work from this facility. After this short call, the inmate will be placed on hold and you will be presented the opportunity to:

  1. Pay (via credit card) to continue the current call.
  2. Deposit funds into their Inmate Account to continue your call and, if there is money remaining, the inmate may use the funds to make future calls to any number.
  3. Deposit funds to your Friends & Family Account to continue your call and, if there is money remaining, the inmate may use the funds to call your number only.
