Inmate Money and Commissary

 Inmate trust fund accounts are set up for each inmate that is booked into the St. Martin Parish Correctional facility in St. Martinville. Any cash an individual has in his/her possession when booked in is placed into an inmate trust fund (commissary) account in his/her name. Family members and friends can deposit funds into an inmate’s account.
Inmates are afforded the opportunity to use funds in his/her account to make purchases from the Jail commissary store. Note that the Sheriff’s Office has a contract with a third party vendor for items stocked in the store.
Set fees for medical expenses are also deducted from inmate accounts for prescriptions, doctor’s appointments, dental appointments, and incidentals such as Tylenol, Advil, etc. Medical expenses are deducted first from Inmate accounts. Any remaining balance will be available to make commissary store purchases.

Payments may be made into an Inmate’s account by one of the following options:
