CCAOSC INMATE PAY PHONE COMMISSION PROGRAM
Following a federal court ruling to require AT&T to divest its long distance phone holdings in 1988, CCAO established a pay phone commission program to provide inmate phone service and to generate revenue.
Benefits of the Program
Three alternative methods that provide a new source of revenue: debit select, card connect and prepaid collect.
• Allowing the county jail or correctional facility to block or unblock numbers.
Counties receive a percent of billable long distance calls placed from pay phones in county facilities and from collect only calls in county jails. Counties also benefit by the state of the art phone facilities in county jails and can also avail themselves of supplemental value added services, including video arraignment.
Approximately 66 counties participate in this CCAOSC-sponsored program. CCAO has selected Securus Technologies to administer the program.
Securus Technologies is an endorsed CCAOSC program partner.
