Commissary

Commissary

The Sumner County Sheriff’s Office has contracted with Tennessee Business Enterprise (TBE) to provide a computerized inmate accounting system. The system will establish and maintain the collection of medical fees and damage to county property costs. It will also provide commissary services to inmates. Any money the inmate has will be submitted to TBE for deposit into the inmate accounting system.  When an inmate is released from jail the released individual will be provided a debit card with their remaining balance due to them credited to the card. If the released individual deems to opt out of the debit card, they may fill out a form that will be sent to TBE and TBE will issue them a check via the mail. If an inmate is released and transferred to the custody of another agency, then the same form will be filled out and a check will be issued, no card will be issued.

Should an inmate be released before TBE has deposited the inmate funds, every effort will be made to return said funds to the inmate upon release.

The inmate will be allowed to use his/her funds to order and purchase authorized items such as hygiene items, over the counter medications, clothing items, candy, snacks, beverages and other miscellaneous items. Items ordered by the inmate will be deducted from the inmate’s account and delivered to the inmate by TBE.

Commissary is delivered twice a week. Money needs to be on an inmate's account at least by: Midnight on Sunday for Tuesday delivery, and Midnight on Wednesday for Friday delivery. We have several different ways to add money to an inmate's account.
