The Scioto County Sheriff's Office operates an inmate commissary from which inmates may order items that include hygiene items, candy, chips, snacks, stamped envelopes, paper, pencils, coffee, board games and etc. All commissary items must be ordered from the Scioto County Jail Commissary Kiosk. Items from the public will not be permitted, accepted or allowed within the jail.
Inmates are allowed to order twice a week, once on Monday and once on Thursday. In order for an inmate to use the money on his/her commissary account for their orders, all money must be deposited no later than 9:30 am on the day the order is to be submitted. All inmate commissary orders are limited to $60.00 per order.
Another option to ordering commissary is for family and or friends to send a "care package" to the inmate by placing the order on line through a program called "Access Securepak".
DEPOSIT MONEY FOR INMATE
Family & friends may leave money on the inmates commissary account by personally coming into the Scioto County Sheriff's Office between the hours of 8:00 am thru 4:00 pm and depositing the money at the Administrative Office. Cash deposits only are accepted. You may also mail a certified money order to the office but please make sure you place the name of the inmate in the memo section.

INMATE COMMISSARY REFUND
When an inmate is released from jail and the inmate has unused funds on his/her commissary account, the inmate may recieve a refund by simply going to the Administrative Office between the hours of 8:00 am and 4:00 pm Monday thru Friday to request a refund. The inmate must have a photo identification card. Refunds can only be released to the inmate and no other individual. No Exceptions! Inmates will be issued a "ACCESS FREEDOM" debit card loaded with the remaining balance.
