Sending Money to An Inmate
The Spartanburg County Detention Facility operates a cashless system for inmates. This means incarcerated individuals are not allowed to have U.S. currency. Money is considered contraband and disciplinary action is taken against any inmate found to possess money.
Every inmate in the Spartanburg County Detention Facility has an account that allows him/her to make purchases in the facility. The inmate's identification wrist band has a bar code that allows the wrist band to function as a debit card to that inmate's account. When the inmate desires to purchase items in the facility, his/her wrist band is scanned and the purchase is allowed if there are sufficient funds in the inmate's account to pay for the desired items.
