  1. My grandson is Bryson Allen Douglas is 17 years old. Has Bryson been evaluated mentally since he was incarcerated?

    Someone have someone check and have him evaluated before trail (Aug 17)

    • Sharon, this is something that you will need to call the jail about, ask to speak with MHMR and share your concerns with them about needing a psychological evaluation. Bryson’s attorney might also be able to help.

  2. my son is there currently withdrawing from heroin. they are giving him stomach meds only. this is serious, he is in lots of pain. how do I get medical attention to huim?

    • You’ll need to contact the medical department at the jail, then if that does not work out you should look for a rehab clinic willing to contact the jail in your son’s behalf to inquire about his care. Most counties in Texas will give heroin addicts the withdrawal meds automatically, those that do not, just need some motivation.

  4. My son is currently being held in Denton county for almost 9 months now. He has monthly contacts he is wearing and an expired prescription. He is being denied seeing an eye dr for a new prescription while he is incarcerated. His eyes are now begging to get infected and he’s having issues and he’s complained but medical is telling him it’s not a necessary requirement for them to take care of? My son has almost lost his vision before due to ulcers on his eyes and I’ve provided that medical history and they are still not doing anything. Do I need to get his attorney involved?

  5. How do I get Power of Attorney for an inmate so I can take care of his personal business while he’s serving time?? I can’t seem to call any number where a real person answers the phone so that any of my questions can be answered. Every time I need an answer I have to drive all the way to Denton County Jail and even then no one ever seems to be able to put 2 sentences together. I am soooo frustrated.

  6. This inmate Amos Rodriguez is no longer there were did go from your jail. He birthday is 07/17/1976 age 40 parole violation

  7. I am interested in knowing if i can take tennis shoes or under wear and under shirts. I did not see if any items were able to be provided to an inmate. Please advise. Thank you!

    • Has to buy underwear and shirt off commissary

  8. I am trying to register for a n onsite video visit but the page visitation.Denton does not come up…help!!!

  9. I think they need to get the commisary fixed, there are alot of inmates needing things and no one knows what is going on up there, not even the guards, THANK YOU

  10. This jail sucks

  11. I’m am familiar with Denton County police department bc of jury duty, and in the past bailing my dad out of jail. My dad is currently now serving time that will end up in TDC. I must say, as unfortunate as it is, it has been a good experience. I have no idea what I am doing, but it is good to know that there are people there to help and answer questions. This is such an emotional experience, but when I have question, its so relieving to hear someone on the other line in a good mood answer and guide me where I need to be. Anyway what I’m trying to say, is thank you all for your time and patience, it means more than you know!!! Keep up the amazing work! Thanks again! 🙂
