The jail commissary is not owned or operated by Carteret County Detention Center (CCDC). An outside vendor is responsible for its operation and prices. Prices are consistent with local retail outlets. An inmate must have sufficient funds in his/her trust fund account to order commissary items. Inmates are provided with three nutritious meals daily. Indigent inmates are provided with basic hygiene items and writing materials every other week.
Depositing Funds to Inmate Accounts
Inmates are permitted to receive funds for deposit to their commissary accounts. However, you should wait until an inmate has received a permanent housing assignment, before depositing money.
On June 1st, 2010, the Carteret County Sheriff's Office installed a Jail ATM kiosk in the lobby of the Main Jail Facility. Using this kiosk, cash may be deposited to inmate commissary accounts. No change will be made. Cash deposits can me be made 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
Cash deposits to inmate accounts ARE NOT accepted by mail. Depositors must present the name of the inmate and the cash amount to be deposited.
