Inmate Telephone Information

Officers and other staff cannot relay any message to inmates; we ask that you follow the established rules for communication.

Androscoggin County Jail no longer accepts money orders to fund an inmate account. We do have a kiosk in our lobby or money can be placed via web through Securus via the web at or by phone at 1-800-844-6591.

This will provide the inmate with funds on their inmate account, so that they may purchase phone time, this will also allow them to purchase commissary (food, hygiene items, and clothing), pay medical co-pay’s, haircuts, etc.

To place money on an inmate’s phone account only, go to, follow the instructions on the website. If you have any issues with the phone connection and/or phone system please call 1-1-800-844-6591. The Androscoggin County Jail is not responsible for losses associated with the inmate phone system. For a list of rates Click Here.

All persons that are booked and processed into the facility are allowed an initial phone call to make bail arrangements or communicate their location. Collect calls can be made by inmates for a short period of time, before billing arrangements are required.

When the inmate is released or transferred from the facility, any remaining funds that were placed on the phone by the inmate will be transferred back on their inmate account. A debit card is then issued and given to them.
