    Hi! Your website is quite helpful to me. Unfortunately, I did not come across it until my son got actually put IN the jail. But, I have been able to get a LOT of things done using the information I gained from this website. It looks as though some things are out-of-date, as most of the dates are from 2013. If you are interested, I would be happy to send you any updated information or my experience in “working with the system” to get information about my son, get $ on his books, sending him books, etc. Thank you so much for all of your hard work in setting up this website. It has been such a blessing.

  2. D. McClendon says:

    Please advise me to the amount of money an inmate really needs each week while in jail. I wonder if my friend is asking me for too much.

    • Theresa (Tracy) Phillips says:

      Some of the information is directly from my son, but some is from a friend of his that was recently in the county jail as well. I was told aproximately $20-$30 per week is what I’ve been told. My son was downtown and now moved to GreenBay facility. They are issued thin flip-flops (like the kind you get at a spa for pedicure…very temporary). The inmate must purchase the slip on tennis-shoes from commissary as well as all toiletries, paper, pen, stamps, etc. I have been told that Ramen noodles are $.70 per package. Where we can purchase an entire box at Walmart for $.18 per package, but… I understand there are tortillas, packages of tuna, containers of chili, containers of rice. I do not know the pricing. Unfortunately, I am told, the meals are not appetizing whatsoever. I’m trying to be kind here. But if you calculate 3-4 packages of anything per meal to make up some kind of something, averaging the cost at $.70 at three times a day, comes out to $19.60 per week. Then you must add toiletries, paper for writing letters, etc. The first commissary shopping seems to be the biggest. Then about every other week will be bigger due to the toiletries. This is what I have gathered so far. If you have any other questions, I’d be delighted to help. Hope this helps you! Be blessed!

    • Theresa (Tracy) Phillips says:

      Also, so of the locations do not have commissary every day, so the inmates will stock up for a day or two if they know in advance. I think some do not have commissary on weekends at all.

    • B says:

      I used 100 a week I think or more sometimes. Just depends what you need. Former inmate.

    • J.J. says:

      I have usually left $20-$40 a week for someone. Which is actually plenty. Now when you’re inside it doesn’t seem like it, so the more someone leaves the more you spend, but for everyday items $40 week is living good…but $60 is living better….. 🙂

    Does anyone know if you can visit someone in Tarrant county if you have traffic warrants

      Not unless you want to be in there too. I wouldn’t risk it.

    Visiting the Tarrant County jail today. A Sunday I will always remember. You really had to be on a mission to get there today. Smooth sailing until I was in Downtown Fort Worth, only to be rerouted just a few blocks from the jail–across the Trinity River twice, because I missed a turn. Main Street and others were blocked off for a group of hundreds of bicycle riders. Once I finally made it back I found a parking garage but with zero parking. Finally I made enough circles around, found availability on a corner parking lot. Had to walk 3 blocks to the jail, ok with that. The Sheriffs ee’s were nice enough to explain to me how to visit someone and were nice enough to remind me to say I have never been here before, so I could get help. After registering for visitation you are given an 8×10 card, identifying the floor and phone booth you are heading to. While at the elevator you have to hold your card in front of you, pointing to a camera, so the elevator knows what floor to take you. When you get to the floor, then to the designated phone booth, you sit and wait for what seems to be eternity, and then your loved one enters a closet, sit, pick up the phone and you begin conversation. After the session, you leave, go to the property window to leave something for them, like a pair of eyeglasses, hoping that they really will deliver them to her. Final stop at the money window, where you put cash on the inmate’s book. ATM machine there but would not dispense cash. The attendant was nice enough to tell me where a 7/11 was in walking distance. I walked 3 blocks and back. I put money on her book. Now tomorrow she can go to the commissary and buy 3 simple things that can be taken for granted. She wants shampoo, soap and coffee. This was a 4 hour tour for me. This girl needs a lot of prayer. She hooked up with the wrong crowd. Long road ahead for her but it’s gonna be ok. Her cell mate has been really good to her, reading the Bible to her and fixing her hair. God does for us what we can’t do for ourselves.

  5. Mercury7619 says:

    Not everyone in jail is a criminal. I’m saddened to see the medical care has not gotten better since there was a case settled in recent years about their care of inmates medical needs. Needs best advice on how to visit a friend to check on his well being. Any positive advice is welcome.

  6. tito says:

    what comissary webpage is used for the tarrant county cold springs unit??????

  7. annonymous says:

    Attorney’s should be able to get there clients out of jail asap when first offense and or the person is under the age of 25 years old. The young adults are really treated bad. Pregnant women should not be in jail with everyone should have separate special cells to accommodate the pregnant female not in humane conditions and no food what is that all about? You should be able to see a doctor any time you need to or a pastor or priest or psychiatrist and get the help you need. No one should be on the floor with shit on the floor and pealing paint and cold.

  8. annonymous says:

    The Police lie and steal and threaten and they are supposed to be protecting and serving . Serving who? not me
    The laws and are not protecting the citizens of America.
    Police need sensitivity training and need not be able to pull guns unless being shot at or the person has a gun. All police mandatory should have to have body cameras and have to show the warrants to the person and allow them to read it and it should be explained before arrest and Miranda rights should have to be read regardless of warrant or not. If the person is shot by police and they did not have a gun the police should be prosecuted and sentenced. Families are bullied and suffering at the hands of police and if I needed the police I would not call because they come out and harass you instead of protect and serve you. Male cops should not be able to pat a women down period. And where are you supposed to put your feet in the back of a police car no room on the floor.

  9. annonymous says:

    I would like to say that the jails need to be protested and no one seems to care that when you are taken to jail you are still innocent till proven guilty and the holding cells and jails are nasty and no where to even sit down but a concrete hard nasty poopy floor. You need to be treated innocent till proven guilty so in other words my tax dollars should not be spent to treat and represent guilt. And once found guilty the jails are still not fit for the guilty. All the tax dollars going in investors pockets and the employees that treat everyone that comes in there with disrespect and guilt. Help the change the jails and the treatment of people. This is not rehabillitation

  10. Jeremy Igorski says:

    It is amazing to me how many people, trying to visit “lived ones” are outright illiterate. It does not surprise me, furthermore, that many of ye have progeny that are outright criminal in their countenance.

    I mailed my son $20.00 on Oct.6th. He got out on the 13th. I just today got the envelope 114-15, it had been opened and the $20.00 was gone. The outside of envelope is marked return to sender not in Tarrant County. Why was this even opened and who STOLE THE MONEY!

  12. Kay says:

    My Boyfriend is in Tarrant County, and he was at the mail facility for only 4 days until he got transferred to Cold Springs. He is on trustee, so he has been working, but only 2 days of being at Cold Springs he is getting transferred again to Green Bay, apparently for some sort of rehabilitation class which is offered there. However, he also just received a kite the day before being taken to Green Bay saying that he would be released in 3 days. Why would he get transferred to Green Bay? Does anybody know what this class consists of, or how lengthy it is?

    I’m in Wyoming and my son is in Ft. Worth . He was inn a motorcycle accident and broke his back in 2 places among other injuries. They won’t eveen take him to medical. He is in so much pain. I thought one of our rights was to have medical. care even if we are locked up? And the food is another story. They feed them barely enough to keep them alive. This is BS and it makes me livid! They may have broken the law but they are still human beings! Does anyone know who I can call for help on this? TIA

    Jail is never fun, but i did spend three months in tarrant county jail. during my stay the staff for the most part conducted themselves in a professional manner. i think what most overlook is that the staff are only human and will respond with the same courtesty and respect they are extended. I had no issues with the staff during my stay, but make no mistake i do not intend on trying for another visit! Special thanks to officer Cambell (sorry if misspelled ), He had a true impact on me and how i have tried to live my life since. Imagine That, I learned something profound…

      Not sure if you even check this site any longer, but I appreciated your comments. If you, or anyone else can chime in, I have a question. My son has asked if I would have a Bible, Bible study materials, and books mailed to him via Amazon. I looked online and it appears that he can request religious material from the chaplain, and books are available as well. I want to support and not enable and to be honest, he is in jail because he broke into my home and stole items from me and other family members. He also wants money in his account–how much is reasonable? I’m good with buying shampoo, but I’m not ok with much more at this point.

    Barely 18 he got arrested for smoking pot. My son turned himself in because he missed his court date and was currently in Teen Challenge for men, trying to get his life together. He is “somewhere” in one of the jails in tarrant county and I do not know which one. I called up there to find out which one and they said he never checked in, yet his dad took him in and last thing he saw was the police fingerprinting him. I looked him up online and it shows him as in custody in Tarrant County but I have no idea WHERE in Tarrant County. Very concerned. If the man at main office said hes not there, yet it says online that hes in custody then I suppose hes there, but hes been there for 3 days and the man at the desk says no? Doesn’t sound right!

    My best friend and boyfriend 3 days downtown broke his foot. Even though it looked bad and excruciating pain figured it would go away on its own. Now to greenbay has put for medical to look at it 14 days now since accident. I told him to keep submitting request just like for anything else, but I keep reading about contacting from outside too. Do you have to be family/spouse to do so? Does or can an inmate In general request who can receive information regarding anything for that matter. Appreciate the information

    My friend got stopped while he was going home becuase his bike didnt have a light. So they took him to jail becuase he had a fake ID to work. He was at Arlington Police Department next thing you know he has an immigration Hold and they send him to Tarrant County his been there for almost a month and nobody doesnt know what to tell us not even the law. So we went to the bond at the Tarrant County Correction Center and a lady told us to pay the bond for the False ID so we paid she said if we did this they would start the whole process and either leave him here or send him with immigration so nothin has happend so far and they just wanna treat us like crap and yesterday they sent him to greenbay facility

  24. DC says:

    No jail, prison, county lock-up, etc. is EVER “concerned” with an inmate’s safety, health, food, legal rights, or comfort. “They” don’t care if you get your visit, the money goes on their books, the inmate gets needed meds, nothing. My daughter has been to prison 5 or 6 times, county jails more than I can count and I have NO SYMPATHY for her — she CHOSE this life, but I DO still love her & visit her when I can, put $$ on her books when I can and write her & let her call me collect. I’m not angry — I’m resigned. This is her life and therefore, mine.

    But if you think The Man cares about your son, daughter, wife, husband, GF/BF, Best Friend — don’t delude yourself any longer.

  25. b says:

    morning through lunch staff is nice and i never had problems when visiting. the inmate i visit told me afternoon and evening people were the messed up ones which is why i always try to visit before noon and so far the people have been nice. he was in the suicide risk and he had no access to clothing. pillow. no blanket or any type of reading article not even a way to write straight up locked up ALL day and he would tell me he was cold in there. just recently he was removed from the list and is now wearing a uniform and he says its ok because he at least gets to see/talk to others instead of being Locked up by himself all day and being cold.

    Also, it is a good idea to always do an Inmate Search BEFORE you go visit, as inmates are moved around without notice. After you locate the inmate in the search, open their record by clicking on their name and you will see what Tarrant County “Unit” they are currently in (in small text below their info).

    My BF started out in TCCC and then was transferred to Greenbay. He has a serious chronic pain condition and we too took all his meds. Ask the inmate to sign a medical release so that you can call and speak with medical about their treatment, otherwise they won’t discuss due to HIPAA laws. Next ask the inmate to fill out a request to see medical to discuss their condition and required meds. Tell them to keep submitting a request if their condition is not being addressed, being specific with details. Be diligent about calling medical to inquire about what is being done. It took about a week for him to get his anti-seizure. They only gave him advil for pain. Took two weeks to get him back on antidepressant. Took three weeks to get him back on his anti-anxiety and nerve med. Took 4 weeks to get him on his other antidepressant and sedative. His pain is his worst condition and that still has yet to be resolved, but we are going to keep submitting requests for medical until they give him something stronger than advil.

    For the person asking about Greenbay… it is different from TCCC in that the facility is smaller and the visitation area is one big area with I’m guessing 60 booths. There are no phones. You sit right next to other visitors, behind glass, and speak through a baffle type area on each side of the glass. It’s very noisy and you absolutely can’t have any sort of private conversation. The up side is that the line is usually not very long and I’ve not ever had to wait before being sent to a booth.

    My BF started in TCCC and was transferred to Greenbay while he is awaiting transfer to the East Texas Treatment facility. He was told it doesn’t usually take longer than 2 weeks to be transferred, but he’s been in county jail 4 weeks now. I’ve heard that once you’re released from East Texas that the same thing can happen and you will sit there for weeks waiting to be released.

    Hope this helped some of you with questions.

      So if any one is transferred to Green Bay from Tarrant County Correction center, then are they going to TDC? Or could they be held there for a court date due to overcrowding at other facility.

      Agreed, anonymous.My son is there now and it rips my heart out that he is going through this, but he is an adult and made these decisions on his own. If they are comfortable, what is the punishment? They have to realize that these living conditions are what they are setting themselves up for as criminals. I do not like to call my son a criminal anymore than others like to believe their loved ones are criminals. My son is an addict and drugs are illegal, therefore he is a criminal. The truth hurts. Let’s just all pray they are learning their lessons because their living situations may not be ideal but as parents/family, we are suffering as well.

    Talking about? Very selfish, ungrateful, noncareing people. I hope it made you feel good becasuse I will be right back up there tomorrow to see my son so how about those apples. I do not see one sign posted that states you can not use you phone while you are in a visit.

    I know jail is not supposed to be a spa, but all inmates are not criminals and they are still people. They have to endure conditions that the SPCA would not allow for animals. I don;t understand how nurses who took the Hippocratic Oath can withhold medicine from a sick person who needs it. Who do you complain to?

  37. me says:

    I just got off the phone from someone in the medical records area i think i didnt catch her name. Now my experience at tarrant county jail has never been pleasant as in visiting my step son or the sheriffs giving a care whatsoever. But this very helpful lady helped me out by just giving me information. My step son had scoliosis and its getting worse and they just keep giving him ibuprofen. Well hopefully with the very helpful info she gave me (very nice and helpful lady) maybe we can get him better treatment. So im grateful to her and hopefully it will all end well. Thank you very much for your help I really wish I got your name.

    I recently did time for probation violation back in july, and when I was released I never recieved my receipt stating that everything had been payed off, which is what the judge told me when I went to court. We have tried faxing Tarrant County almost every week for the past two months, but never got a reply. I am not sure if we have the right fax number, but i cant find anything online. Now San Antonio sent my Father a letter in the mail saying that I still have a warrant out for my arrest in Tarrant county for theft under fifty, and that i still owe $800.00 . I think they made a clerical error, but i have no idea who to talk to. I need to get this resolved ASAP, because I have a four day old girl and a day job that I cannot lose. Please help .

My boyfriend was locked up two weeks ago for getting super behind on his payments to his PO and his class. He also has two fines in Grand Prairie. Last thing I heard was that he was waiting for a court appoint attorney then off to see a judge.

      New charge that cuts a deal will usually stay in the new jail, Surely hes not looking at TDC time which transfers all.over the state!, Take the minimum paper, unless hes got balls…do Prison time & be done!

      Do prison time. Be done. It’s the end result. For probationers. All about money. It’s an industry. Tarrant sets you up to fail. Not succeed. TX is only state in the nation. Who has highest conviction rate. Lot of dirty cops on the street

    To often we only make a comment to complain. I contacted an individual in the MHMR dept. named Jeremy and he not only got my son his medications in less than 24 hours, he called me back to let me know that he had visited with my son and that under the circumstances he is doing quite well. I felt like he went above and beyond what I would have expected anyone to do in such a hurry.

      My son isn’t on any meds but his probation officer told him in court that he better sign the paper work to go to treatment or she would revoke is defered probation and send him to prison. She didn’t even alow him to read a statement he wrote to the judge. How long does it take to get a rule 25 drug assement done so he can start treatment.

    • Mom says:

      Thank you for your helpful comment. I wanted to be sure my son was getting the appropriate medication for his anxiety and depression and will follow through with MHMR. I know the comments go back over years, but maybe the angry mom just needed a safe place to vent. We are all dealing with incredibly stressful situations, and from my perspective the hardest thing is making sure he deals with the consequences of his actions, while still knowing that he is my son and he is dearly loved. Really hard to find that line between enabling and support–I’m so afraid that if I don’t find that line and hold it, what the consequences might look like.

  50. Christina Reed says:

    My brother has end stage liver disease and was took in on a friday night. We provided the medical workers with all of his medicine information what he takes, when he takes it, what happens if he doesn’t get it. Two days later they have never given him any meds and he is becoming toxic. He needs to go over to the hospital now. But we can’t get anyone to help us or to listen. Many messages left for the nurse that she has not returned. How do they get by with this? they assured us to our face he would get his medicine friday night. Its sunday and nothing has been given to him yet.

      Same thing happend to an HIV friend of mine, i took his medicine personally which is very expensive and they never gave him his meds and never returned the meds i took either. so they had to change his coctail because been off the meds. created tolerance so now he is hoping this will. I KNOW IS EASIER TO SAY ” THEY COMMITED A CRIME, SO LET THEM PAY FOR IT” but some of those ppls their biggest crime was to have no money and unpaid fines. so don’t judge anyone only because they are in jail. this is mainly to angry mom.

      I hope and pray he gets his meds. I was in a similar situation a few years ago… My wife had a absess tooth that was badly infected. We had seen a dentist that prescribed her antibiotics that she had taken as prescribed the 2 days prior to getting arrested. We told the jail that without these meds she would have a rupture, and possibly risk my wife’s health. Did they care?? Nope just said that she would have to see the county Doctor(which she never did). So on day 2 with us begging to allow her to have these antibiotics we have no luck. We get a call on day 3 from tarrant county informing us that my wifes tooth had ruptured and that she had been taken to a local hospital. We find out not only did it rupture she lost so much blood they had to do a blood transfusion to get her stabalized. I was so pissed at tarrant county because it all could have been avoided and my wife wouldn’t have this traumatic experience. I don’t know if everyone reading this actually knows how bad these jails can be( I was in Green Bay when they were feeding us rotten food. Think I’m kidding it was in the news paper. Look it up) parents please know that jail is more than enough punishment by itself without the parents and siblings giving them a hard time why they pay for their crimes. I know I was locked up for 39 days with no money on my books and no visits and I would not wish that on my worst enemy. You are a number behind those bars not a person. The only thing that keeps you rational most of the time is your family and friends(letters,visits,money on books, etc.) Even know you get mad and are dis appointed, always remember that you love these people and they are your family! 🙂 god bless you all!

      if he has a lawer then it is on council to ensure that the needs of the client are met especialy medical needs. If there is no legal representation then a note from a attending doctor will speed up the process . Unfortunately your word alone is not going to cut the red tape. Further more on intake he should have gone through medical at witch point it was his responsibilty to inform staff of any current medical situations. Hope things work out, I wish ya’ll the best.

    • AMY says:

      My daughter is in there because SHE BROKE THE LAW. She is living her consequences. It is not staff or officers responsibilty to make it easy on her. It is their position to make sure we all stay safe. I am ashamed and deeply hurt by my daughter’s actions. I hope she learns, and I pray she abide by the law and become a productive citezen. I do not wish for her to hurt others or herself. I deeply appriciate those working there as would not want to. Let your loved ones take responsibilty for their actions.

    • Terri says:

      If your daughter broke the law, then she broke the law, and she is paying with the consequences. An angry mother needs to get over herself.

      I get shuffled back and forth between the main facility and green bay in an effort to try to get medical treatment for my son. They took him to the hospital, the doctor gave him meds. He never saw them. He went to Green Bay a week later. They eventually made him a medical appointment at Green Bay but he heard nothing else, and that day has come and gone.

      I believe the right hand doesn’t know what the left hand is doing, and through my line of work, I do know that jails in general are NOT interested in helping you. They only hope you will post bond and get out of their hair. $20,000 is beyond my means. It stinks.

      Sorry about your daughter.

      Have I ever been angry at my son? You betcha. But it does no good to be an angry mother.

      if you didn’t hurt or kill someone i do not believe you should have to sit in a prison. it is time we looked to the person next to us and asked ourselves if we would be ok with that person only being able to look at walls and bars for the rest of their life. even if it was a stranger it would tear me apart on the inside if i knew that was that person’s fate.

      we don’t even know what this world is so who are we to judge

      These jails are nasty and disgusting I have seen dog canels cleaner than these facilities. Thirty people in a cell with ten bunks is ridiculous. Hurts to know this is allowed.



      Amy, it’s so nice to hear from an intelligent mother, who won’t make excuses for her child’s mistakes.

      Also, if these idiots are so sick, why would they be out and about making a conscious choice to BREAK THE DAMN LAW! Shouldn’t they be in bed?!

      I can honestly say that NONE of my children even have gotten a traffic ticket!

      So, cry an ocean!


      The entire jail process is on camera; including when inmates refuse meds!

      IF all these claims were true, a HUGE INVESTIGATION would have already transpired and been at least one breaking story on the news!!!

      Besides, people that are so sick should not be out breaking the damn law!

      WAAA, WAAA, WAAA!!

      I am the victim of assault by my ex boyfriend. He was already on bond for assault on another woman. He is in jail. Heading to prison but I have to testify and am scared. He has been to prison before. Is jail a holiday for him. He gets arrested and see free to assault again. Thus time I was told he’s not getting out. I have never dealer with this before. Is the jail fun? Because I don’t know anything about it. Why would someone want to keep living there? Im fed up with him and the system that allows him to continue to prey on women.

    • Anonymous says:

      Yes, Amy. I completely agree. My son is in Tarrant County waiting to be transferred to Denton County. He asked me today for some money to buy socks, because the sandals are uncomfortable. Too bad. You’re in jail – not a spa. The decisions that he has made have led him to this place. He needs to face the consequences and hopefully learn and become a functioning member of society.

      I don’t understand the other replier that says he went through $100/week while in jail. Who is funding a criminal with $400/month?! I barely spend that much on myself a month, and I actually have a job!
