Telephone Access

The San Benito County Jail provides telephone access to inmates on a daily basis.  All calls are collect calls paid at the expense of the person receiving the call.  The following shall apply:

  • New inmates shall be provided, cost free, local telephone calls within (3) hours of their booking except where physically impossible.
  • Inmates who are not sentenced shall be provided, cost free, local telephone calls to their attorney’s upon request and as soon as it is physically possible.
  • Long distance calls are provided at the expense of the person receiving the call.
  • To ensure the safety and security of the facility all calls are recorded and the Jail staff may monitor non-confidential telephone calls.
